Reggie Wayne: Set to retire
Wayne announced his retirement on Friday, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports. Despite signing a one-year contract with the Patriots during training camp, Wayne did not play a regular season snap in 2015 after failing to make the 53-man roster. He was on pace for a strong season in 2013 with Indianapolis after recording 38 receptions through the first seven games of the season, but a torn ACL derailed that campaign and left him somewhat limited in 2014 at age 36. Regardless, Wayne will go down as one of the most prolific receivers of the past two decades as his 1,070 career catches place him seventh all-time--just eight receptions behind Terrell Owens.

Former Colts WR Reggie Wayne considering options
After being told by Colts general manager Jim Irsay that he was not in the team's plans moving forward, wide receiver Reggie Wayne still wants to play one more season, reports theindychannel.com. He has received interest from teams this offseason and he is weighing his options at this point. "Just not done, yet," he said, adding that signing with another team "will have to make sense to me. No doubt in my mind I've got a minimum of one, maybe two years left in me. I ain't done, yet." Wayne insisted he's gotten "damned good" interest from teams, but declined to name them. "I'm just going to consider my options," per the same report. Wayne was asked if he was disappointed in the team's decision to not keep him around. "Was I disappointed? Yeah," Wayne said. "But did it surprise me? I'm never surprised in this league. When they get rid of Peyton Manning, you know you ain't nothing. When you see them get rid of Marvin Harrison, who am I? They got rid of Edgerrin James. "But yeah, I was disappointed. Who isn't disappointed when they're told their credit card has been declined when they know they've got money in the bank. That was me. I knew I still could play, but I had been declined." Wayne, 36, has totaled 1,070 receptions for 14,345 yards and 82 touchdowns in 14 seasons with the Colts.
