(NEW YORK) — The New Orleans Saints passing attack just got even more potent as wide receiver Marques Colston returned from the PUP list, and the team also signed wide receiver Steve Breaston.
“It’s about time I started camp,” said Colston. “These guys have been out here working hard for [10 days]. They’re really in football shape.”
Colston spent the first 10 days of camp on the physically unable to perform list with a foot injury.
He’s been the team’s most reliable receiver since his rookie year in 2006. Last season, he caught 10 touchdowns and eclipsed over 1,000 receiving yards for the sixth time in his seven-year career. His 58 career touchdowns ranks first in franchise history.
Meanwhile, Breaston is coming to the Saints after being part of the Kansas City Chiefs for the past two seasons. He has 68 catches over the past two seasons.
“I’m grateful they gave me the opportunity,” Breaston said. “I’ve just got to go out there, learn the playbook, and keep working hard.”
Even though Saints’ head coach Sean Payton was suspended for the entire 2012 season, the team still had the first-ranked passing attack in the NFL, and the second-ranked offense.
