Another big WR to hit market?

We’ve already relayed to you how San Diego WR Vincent Jackson is likely to hit the free agent market. Now there’s another from the star-studded group of free agent wideouts that might be available come March 13th.

According to the National Football Post, New Orleans’ Marques Colston could become a free agent by the mid-March mark as the Saints have a couple of other major free agent priorities. Here’s what they wrote.

*It’s possible Marques Colston will be a former Saint in the near future. The Saints have made no attempts to re-sign the star wide receiver up to this point. The front office has been pre-occupied with trying to work out a new deal for Drew Brees. If the Saints can’t sign Brees, they likely will use the franchise tag on him, giving them one less way to retain Colston. Also complicating the issue is the pending free agency of guard Carl Nicks. Given the cash outlay this team will be facing, the Saints may have to choose between Colston and Nicks.
