Reggie Wayne Still Plans To Play In 2015

It has been a few months since we’ve heard any concrete updates on Reggie Wayne‘s plans for 2015, but the veteran wide receiver still intends to play this season, he told reporters this morning. According to Mike Wells of (via Twitter), Wayne said today that teams have been calling him, and he plans to eventually sign with one of them.

It’s not clear which specific teams have interest in Wayne, but it’s hard to imagine the longtime Colt joining a club without Super Bowl aspirations. When Wayne indicated back in March that retirement wasn’t in the cards quite yet, Ian Rapoport of reported that the 36-year-old figured to sign with a contending team.

Wayne, who spent 14 years in Indianapolis after being drafted by the Colts in the first round way back in 2001, is no longer the sort of impact player he was during his prime. However, he was still a reliable target for Andrew Luck last season, compiling 779 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 64 catches. According to Kevin Bowen of (via Twitter), Wayne’s ideal scenario would be to play for one more season and then retire.

Any club with interest in signing Wayne would presumably deploy him as a third or fourth wideout, rather than relying on him as a top target. When camps get underway and injuries begin to mount, his list of potential suitors may increase.
