Report: Reggie Wayne Will Part Ways With Peyton Manning, Re-Sign With Colts

Wednesday March 14th, 2012

A week ago, Reggie Wayne was talking about leaving in free agency as a package deal with Peyton Manning, his old quarterback on the Indianapolis Colts. Now that appears unlikely, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Wayne is staying with the Colts another three years.

Wayne has been a Colt his entire career -- the team picked him with the No. 30 overall pick in the first round of the 2001 NFL draft. Over the last 11 years, he's amassed 862 catches for 11,708 yards and 73 touchdowns.

After sticking it out with a miserable Colts team that went 2-14 last season, Wayne will be rewarded by a fresh start next year with the No. 1 overall pick -- likely Stanford's Andrew Luck -- under center.
