It appears that fans will have to rapidly come to terms with the New Orleans Saints greatest wide receiver, Marques Colston, moving on from the past.

On Tuesday afternoon, realtor.com broke an article saying that Marques Colston is selling his Louisiana home in Destrehan. As the column notes, the house has been on the market since April.

"Originally listed for $769,900 in April, the four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home had its price reduced this week to $734,900. The 6,576-square-foot home features loads of Colston’s personal touches.“He totally redid the house,” says listing agent Denise Tanner. “He updated the kitchen, everything. When I walked in I was really impressed.”"

Everyone knew that Colston’s 10-year run with the Saints was coming to a close due to a $5.9 million salary cap for 2016, and the team officially released him at the end of February. The ‘Quiet Storm’, who just turned 34 in early June, played his entire career with the black and gold after being selected in 7th Round of the 2006 NFL draft.

In 146 career games with the Saints, Marques Colston finished with 9,759 receiving yards and 72 touchdowns on 711 receptions. All of those marks are franchise records, and it will be quite some time (if ever) that someone will equal his production. The pride of Hofstra University was easily a fan favorite among Who Dat Nation, and was a player that just got the job done without boasting or gloating about it.

Former guard Jahri Evans, who was also part of the stellar 2006 draft class, also recently put his home up for sale earlier this month.
