You don’t think Colts receiver Reggie Wayne is really going to hold out of training camp, do you? Sure, Wayne is unhappy with the two years remaining on his six-year, $39 million contract (base salaries $5.47 million in ’10; $5.95 million in ’11). And sure, he skipped the offseason team activities and even a mandatory minicamp.
But if Wayne holds out, he won’t be able to make his grand training camp entrance that fans have come to love. Last season, Wayne dressed as a construction worker – hard hat and all – and showed up driving a dump truck (a rented dump truck, fortunately). In 2007, he showed up in camouflage. In 2006, Wayne arrived wearing Edgerrin James’s new Cardinals jersey.
Judging by the tone of a note he wrote to fans on his website, Wayne will not only report on time, but also turn more heads in doing so:
Is it that time already Colts fans. Seems just like yesterday I cleaning out my locker getting ready for the off-season. I guest it's true when they say, "time waits for no man". So Anderson Indiana here come the Mighty Indianapolis Colts to invade your town for a few weeks. I hope it's somewhere good to eat In Anderson. (first time Colts have held training camp in Anderson Indiana in over 10 years) All of my friends keep telling me how they can't wait for me to go back to work because they want to see some football. Then we get into a debate about how they cutting my vacation short. But at the same time, it's raining everyday in South Florida due to hurricane season. So maybe it is time to play some football. Not much else to talk about at this point in time. I'm about to go sit by the pool with a glass of lemonade(that's right LEMONADE) and enjoy my last few days of freedom. Talk to you soon. GO COLTS!
