Reggie Wayne Says Thursday Could Be His Last Home Game With Colts

Thursday December 22nd, 2011

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne said Wednesday that Thursday night’s game could be his last home game with the Colts, according to Pro Football Talk.

“Well, it could,” Wayne said. “I am well aware of that and I’ve come to the conclusion that in every athlete’s career they are going to be faced with this decision at some point in time, whether it is a long career or a short career.”

Wayne, 33, has spent every year of his 11-year career with the Colts, but he is set to become a free-agent and could be let go as the Colts begin a youth movement, according to Pro Football Talk. If he does go, Wayne says he will miss the fans.

“I truly appreciate them,” Wayne said. “They come out with the Reggie signs, and no matter what the situation is they are always there cheering and it could be a little tough. Everybody said it would be a little emotional for me.”
