Saints TE Jimmy Graham's breakout season already has made him a star, but Saints WR Marques Colston is quietly — as is his nature — approaching the fifth 1,000-yard season of his six-year career. He quickly returned to his standard form after starting the season slowly because of the broken collarbone he suffered in Week One, which sidelined him for two games. Graham is on pace to unseat Colston as the Saints' leading receiver — a title Colston has held in each of the past two years and four of his five NFL seasons — in Colston's contract year, but that hasn't created any friction between Colston and Graham, we hear. In fact, Graham has credited Colston with being one of his primary mentors. Colston doesn't shirk the spotlight on the field, but he doesn't demand it, and he's well respected in the locker room. Sources expect his first choice will be to stay with the Saints come free agency.
