Free agent Reggie Wayne talking to teams, plans to play this season

Friday July 17th, 2015

Free agent and longtime Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne says he plans to play the 2015 season and that he has been in discussions with teams. 

Wayne told ESPN's Mike Wells that teams have been calling him with interest in his services. Wayne, recovered from a triceps injury and knee scoping procedure to repair injuries that nagged him throughout the 2014 season, said in April that he wanted to play again if the situation was right.

Wayne has dealt with sevearl injuries over the past couple years, including a torn ACL in 2013. Wayne told reporters Friday that his ideal plan would be “playing one more year and hanging it up.”

Though Wayne, 36, will not return to the Colts, he has spent his entire 14-year career with the team as a top target for Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck, amassing 1,070 catches for 14,345 yards and 82 touchdowns. He was honored with a key to the city of Indianapolis on Friday.
