New Orleans Saints Marques Colston close to setting another team record

Although his nickname is “The Quiet Storm”, you might disagree with that as New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston is such a dominant, physical force on offense and continues to break team records.

Two weeks ago, Colston broke the record for most touchdown receptions that was previously held by former Saints receiver Joe Horn at 50.  Colston caught three touchdown passes to break the record with 52.  Today he also caught his 53rd against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

If he stays on track, Colston could break another record held by a longtime fan favorite former running back Duece McAllister.  McAllister currently holds the total touchdown record of 55.

With Colston’s touchdown today, he tied former Saints running back Dalton Hilliard’s total touchdown mark.
