Reggie Wayne Still Undecided About Returning Next Year


Colts WR Reggie Wayne said that he’s still undecided if he’ll return for the 2015 season.

Once I hit Nashville, I’ll figure out the rest,” Wayne said Monday, via the Indianapolis Star. “I’ll make my outline and go from there. I don’t have a plan. I’ve never had one. I just gotta make a couple phone calls, say a couple of prayers and see what route the good Lord sends me.

Wayne is set to be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months, but the Colts have yet to start the process of negotiating a new contract with their long-time receiver.

“I haven’t talked to Reggie yet,” owner Jim Irsay said before Sunday’s game. “We haven’t started to really have any deep conversations with Chuck (Pagano) and Ryan (Grigson) and I in terms of how the roster’s going to shape up after this.

“He’s had an unbelievable career,” Irsay added. “For the future, we haven’t decided yet.”

Wayne, 36, signed a three-year contract worth $17.5 million, which included $7.5 million fully guaranteed.

This year, Wayne appeared in 15 games and caught 64 passes for 779 yards and two touchdowns for the Colts. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 106 receiver out of 110 qualifying players, so this clearly wasn’t a great season by his standards.
