Marques Colston restructures contract, remains with the Saints

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Wide receiver Marques Colston will remain in New Orleans through the 2015 season. Colston agreed to restructure his contract with the Saints.

Immediate details are unclear of how the contract was restructured. The move comes as the Saints try to shed salary.

Colston was a seventh round pick for the Saints in 2006. He has become the team's leader in overall touchdowns and receiving touchdowns (68), receiving yards (9,239) and receptions (666).

Colston's contract expires after the 2016 season. 

FOX 8 will update the story as details become available.
