Reggie Wayne Says He'd 'Love' To Play For Dolphins With Peyton Manning

Friday March 9th, 2012

Peyton Manning is a free agent, and so, too, soon will be Reggie Wayne, his old favorite target in Indianapolis. Rumor has it that the two offensive stars will be a package deal this spring -- and today, Wayne said he'd love for that to happen on the Miami Dolphins.

"Me being in his trail onto Miami? I would love it," Wayne said in a local radio interview, according to USA Today. "I would definitely love it. I am totally available, my phone is working."

Both players have Miami connections -- Wayne played his college ball for the Hurricanes, and Manning has a home in South Florida, according to Wayne.

Like Manning, Wayne has been a Colt his entire career. Manning was the team's first-round draft pick in 1998; Wayne was their first in 2001. But as both players move on, Wayne says Miami is a very realistic destination for both of them. "I can see it happening," he said. "I really can. I really think he'd enjoy it. I really think that the Dolphin organization would benefit from it, and it would be a hell of a battle in the AFC East, with the rest of those teams, and especially with a Tom Brady in there. So I can definitely see it in the works."
