FOXSports.com has learned that wide receiver Marques Colston agreed to a five-year contract extension just hours before he was set to become an unrestricted free agent.
With free agency set to open in a few short hours, the Bears are watching another possible target disappear. The big names are still out there, but Colston was a name often bandied about as an addition to a Mario Williams acquisition.
It's a smart move for the Saints to make, and gives them some much-needed good news after their recent forays into negative press.
