Reported terms: five years, $40 million, ~$19 million guaranteed. Jay Glazer broke the story.
The Saints had to make a choice between Colston and Carl Nicks, and this contract seems like a decent value all things considered. Since Nicks was demanding to be the highest-paid guard in the NFL, it makes plenty of sense to go with Colston.
