Will Smith, Marques Colston Show Up at Minicamp in Good Faith

Filed under: Saints, NFC South, New OrleansNow this is what I call harmony. Will Smith and Marques Colston both want new contracts. The New Orleans Saints are aware of this. Rather than miss this weekend’s first mandatory action to force the issue with the team’s front office, both players are with their team.
“I wanted to be team guy and be here for my teammates,” said Smith, who faced fines if he was not present for the minicamp. “My main goal is to win a Super Bowl this year. I wanted to be here and help the team out.”Smith made a minor statement, missing the team’s voluntary activities, but at least he’s there when it matters. Colston has been present all along. Both are represented by Joel Segal.

Obviously both players have enough faith in the organization that a deal will be made soon, and I’d expect both — Smith definitely — to be re-upped before the season begins. Which highlights a misconception casual fans typically have about players wanting new deals.

Not every player is selfish. Not every team is cheap. Not every negotiation is acrimonious. There are instances where both sides are on the same page, and it’s simply about taking the time to work it out. While that’s going on, at least Smith and Colston are getting set for 2009.
