While Carl Nicks has publicly shouted from the rooftops of New Orleans that he's as good as gone based on the lack of communication he's had with the Saints' brass, Marques Colston has been the exact oppposite, approaching free agency as a complete enigma.

Drew Brees had a surprising 1st year in New Orleans, after all, he had just had shoulder surgery. He wasn’t thought of as being elite...
