After 10 years with the New Orleans Saints -- and one incredible Super Bowl win -- wide receiver Marques Colston was released in the offseason. Now a free agent, Colston is selling his golf course -- adjacent mansion in Destrehan, LA.
Originally listed for $769,900 in April, the four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home had its price reduced this week to $734,900. The 6,576-square-foot home features loads of Colston's personal touches.
"He totally redid the house," says listing agent Denise Tanner. "He updated the kitchen, everything. When I walked in I was really impressed."
The house was built in 1988, but it isn't stuck in the '80s. The kitchen was updated with stainless-steel appliances, sleek black countertops, and an eye-catching backsplash. Off the kitchen, the den has a soaring ceiling and rows of windows for a bit of a modern feel.
There's plenty to do with a media room, game room, and wet bar. There's also a massive spa, which is Tanner's favorite spot in the house. "It just has everything. There is a sauna, a steam shower, and a big Jacuzzi which seats six," she says. And the home also features a mother-in-law suite with a full bathroom.
The quiet and hard-working Colston developed an impressive career in the Big Easy and became the leading receiver in the franchise's history. While there is no word yet if Colston plans to join another NFL team (though rumors have pegged him with teams including the Washington Redskins and New York Giants), we do know he'll be working off the field soon. He was just named a special adviser to Sport Testing, a company that measures athlete performance.
