Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne undecided about future
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne said he hasn’t made up his mind about whether he will return for a 15th season, telling the Indianapolis Star, “I’ll be somewhere warm thinking about it and I'll go from there.”
Wayne is scheduled to be a free agent in March.
“Once I hit Nashville, I'll figure out the rest," Wayne told the Indianapolis Star. “I’ll make my outline and go from there. I don't have a plan. I've never had one. I just gotta make a couple phone calls, say a couple of prayers and see what route the good Lord sends me."
Colts owner Jim Irsay said earlier this year that he was unsure about Wayne's future.
"I haven't talked to Reggie yet," Irsay said, according to the Indianapolis Star. "We haven't started to really have any deep conversations with Chuck [Pagano] and Ryan [Grigson] and I in terms of how the roster's going to shape up after this.”
Wayne, 36, is the NFL’s active leader in receptions (1,070), receiving yards (14,345) and is third in touchdown receptions (82) behind San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates and Arizona Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald.
“I do have family [to call]," Wayne said. "I'll call them, sit down with them and we'll talk. A lot of times I make calls to them just to make sure I stay up on the road."
Wayne had 64 catches for 779 yards and two touchdowns this season. He did not catch a pass in Indianapolis’ 45-7 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship.
