Ranking the Saints: #14 Marques Colston

Marques Colston resume' needs no explanation. Heading into his tenth season, he is the club's all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. 

However, 2014 was not a good year for 'Quiet Storm.' He finished with 52 receptions, 902 yards and five touchdowns but had more drops than he'd had in his entire career and just never looked right after his overtime fumble against Atlanta in week one. This offseason Colston took a pay cut to continue his career in New Orleans.

But much like almost everyone that was on the roster last year 2014 is in the past. This year Colston will be counted on even more. Behind him and Brandin Cooks are complete unknowns at the wide receiver position, giving him the perfect opportunity to bounce back.
