WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WV (WVUE) -

Marques Colston started training camp on the physically unable to perform list, better known as the PUP, but after knocking off some veteran rust the tenth year receiver is shining in West Virginia. 

"I've been able to get more team reps," Colston said. "Obviously it's a little different than running routes on air. Timing is coming back and conditioning is where it needs to be."

It's a good thing the reliable target is back, because the roster is littered with young receivers looking for his guidance. His quarterback, Drew Brees, knows just how valuable Colston is in every aspect of the game. 

"He's a stud. He's such a pro. He's an extremely productive player," Brees said. "Such a great guy for the young players to see, to watch his approach and work ethic. He leads in a very quiet way, he's got a strong presence."

Colston only hauled in five touchdowns last season, but his QB hasn't lost the faith in his longest tenured option. "We have such a great rapport. He's got such a great feel as a football player. It's like riding bike. He's been doing it for awhile. It comes back very quickly," Brees said. "We've been in so many different situations together. We both see the same thing, feel the same thing, it works."
