Saints Working on Last Minute Deals with Carl Nicks and Marques Colston

Some very optimistic news for Saints fans late this evening. It appears as if the team's front office is working diligently behind the scenes to sign two of their marquee free agents, OG Carl Nicks and WR Marques Colston.

Carl Nicks tweeted this wonderful nugget of truth less than an hour ago:

Y'all know I keep it real on this. My agent told me the saints made me an offer and it is respectable...Still need time to think and talk with my family

I've got to admit, I thought the Saints were going to let the big man walk. So happy to hear the team is finally getting in the game.

And if that wasn't good enough...

...Mike Florio has reported that Marques Colston and the Saints are close to getting a deal done:

A league source tells PFT the two sides are working feverishly toward finalizing a new contract before Colston becomes a free agent at 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Colston, we're told, badly wants to remain a Saint.

Leave it to Mickey to wait until the last minute. Needless to say, this is the happiest post I've written since the Saints hired Steve Spagnuolo.
