New Orleans Saints receiver Marques Colston is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after this season, and word is now circulating that he won't come cheap.

Word has it that Colston will sign with the highest bidder when he hits the open market in March.

In his seventh season with the Saints, Colston, a seventh round draft choice out of Hofstra in 2006, has caught 442 passes, for 6,095 yards, and 46 touchdowns in his career.

This season, Colston has tallied 73 receptions, for 998 yards, and six touchdowns.

Mike Florio, of profootballtalk.com, has more.
