Much of the conversation this season at that position is centered around where to select Jimmy Graham – first round, second? Does he slip to the third… It’s a relevant question, and certainly there is a point at which Graham becomes a high-value play, but it’s not likely to be anywhere near his ADP. Again at some point the cost-benefit will line up on Graham, but while the benefits are obvious, the cost to the rest of your roster needs to be considered. Consider this: last season Graham finished first in scoring at his position by nine points over Rob Gronkowski and 11 over Tony Gonzalez. He outscored the baseline player (TE 12, Antonio Gates) by 56 points – an average of 3.5 points per game... (more)

According to WWLTV, New Orleans receiver Marques Colston returned to practice Monday, this is the first time the receiver went through drills since Aug. 8th, the day before the Saints’ preseason opener against Kansas City.
With another preseason game in the books the roster is starting to take shape and we're all starting to see more clarity on what roles players will have coming into this season. Most of the guys on the outside looking in did themselves no favors and there were few surprises. Most notable perhaps is the battle for the fourth running back is now completely neck and neck, perhaps...

Saints wide receiver Marques Colston has never been to Hawaii.
His teammates would like to see him go the all-expenses-paid route, with what would be his first Pro Bowl selection. For that to happen, Colston probably will have to record the seventh 1,000-yard receiving season in his eight-year career, and do so while coming back from a foot injury that has sidelined him much of...

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By BRETT MARTEL AP Sports Writer Between Jonathan Vilma's latest knee surgery and Curtis Lofton's mysterious absence late last week, it's hard to know who might see the most work at inside linebacker in the Saints' new defensive scheme.
