Colston is ON the market!

As per ESPN(SB hates mobile editors)(http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/7641895/new-orleans-saints-tag-drew-brees-exclusive-rights-franchise-tag)
The Saints had to use that all important franchise tag on Drew Brees, which as Bears fans is extremely good news. Within the story Adam Schefter is noted as saying that the Saints and Brees remain millions apart....no insignificant amount when the Saints look to be edging towards the upper bound of the salary cap already and have a whole heap of trouble about to fall down from on high, as BountyGate™ is about to hit the franchise.

What it means for us Bears fans is instead of having to settle for a mid level replacement as our potential top target for our CannonCutler, instead we could get one of the better younger receivers in the game while hurting a potential NFC conference contender. This sort of opportunity rarely comes around especially when our team has such an established need at WR. Imagine having Marques Colston, Micheal Floyd, and Bennent working the slot. Hester cold see duty as our 4th and simply burn coverages over the top. Or have a 4 receiver set and have Forte run off the draw. Mmmmmmmm....busted D goodness

In short, a twofer.

Any mistakes In punc I blame the iPhone and mobile safari.

Updated with better punctuation, but still stupid zealous autocorrect while mobile.
