Colston sets Saints all-time receiving mark

AP - Sports

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Marques Colston has become the New Orleans Saints career leader in yards receiving during Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

The eighth-year pro, and former seventh-round draft choice out of Hofstra, entered the game needing 12 yards to break Eric Martin's two-decade-old record of 7,854 yards receiving, which was set over nine seasons (1985-93).

Colston surpassed Martin with his first catch of the game, a 14-yard reception on a third-and-12 play in the third quarter.
