Reggie Wayne becomes a free agent on March 10, and the early word is that he’s unsure if he’s played his last game in his career.
I can’t imagine Reggie Wayne retiring wearing another team’s uniform. I can’t imagine that he’s got more than a year left but he should be given a final year from the Colts front office to go out on his own terms and basically serve as a mentor to the Colts’ young receivers on teaching them how to carve out Hall of Fame careers and be great professionals.
I’ve got a lot of good Reggie Wayne memories through the years. He’s one of the best I’ve ever seen. Father Time catches up to everyone sometime. It looks like he’s ran down one of the greatest ever. But I wouldn’t bet against Wayne wearing blue for one more season and surprising everyone on his production and effectiveness.
I’ll never forget the Thursday Night a few days before Christmas that Reggie Wayne almost kept Peyton Manning in Indianapolis and Andrew Luck going to another team in the NFL. He had eight catches for 106 yards and a touchdown from Dan Orlovsky. He did everything he could to bring home a win to Indy that night. He didn’t care about future draft picks or records or anything like that.
The guy is a winner and I need one more year to say goodbye.
