Saints News, 9/18/14: Slow Start Won't Faze Marques Colston

New, comments

From Mike Triplett's ESPN.com article: "'I think that’s what makes him pretty special. I’d say he's a very unselfish player,' Payton said. 'Obviously he wants to be involved and have those opportunities, but he’s someone that always cared first about winning. And he understands the offense and how sometimes balls would come opposite of where he’s at.' Colston has continued to decline media requests since the Atlanta game. 'No. 1, Marques doesn’t talk a whole lot, period,' Brees said. 'Listen, he’s all business. He’s all business. The guy wants to play, the guy wants to be great, the guy is a huge part of what we do.'" In other news, LB Pat Angerer worked out for the Saints today.
