ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey thinks free agent Reggie Wayne "might make for a nice addition" in Cincinnati.
Following the loss of WR James Wright (knee) to injured reserve on Tuesday, the Bengals are in the market for some depth at the position. Wayne could bring a veteran presence to a receiving corps whose oldest player is Brandon Tate at 27. Wayne could then slide in as the No. 3/4 receiver and play for a contender. Jul 29 - 9:41 AM

The Texans are not interested in free agent WR Reggie Wayne.

As expected, the "report" from WRTV in Indianapolis has no legs. The Texans, who didn't want anything to do with a declining Andre Johnson, surely don't want Wayne. They're going to go to battle with Cecil Shorts and rookie Jaelen Strong opposite rising stud DeAndre Hopkins. The Ravens are also expected to pass despite their thin receiving corps. The agent for Wayne has done his best to drum up interest, but his client remains a poor bet to play in the NFL again. Wayne, 36 and coming off three surgeries in the last 20 months, has nothing left.

The Ravens are not expected to pursue free agent WR Reggie Wayne.

A weak "report" came from an Indianapolis television station saying the Ravens were among four teams showing interest in the 36-year-old Wayne. It didn't take long for it to get shot down. Even though the Ravens only have Breshad Perriman, Kamar Aiken and Marlon Brown behind aging Steve Smith, they know Wayne has nothing left.

According to WRTV-6 in Indianapolis, the Patriots, Ravens, Texans and Packers are among the teams showing interest in free agent Reggie Wayne.

This sounds like an agent-driven leak designed to drum up interest for a client. In reality, we'd be surprised if any of these teams were seriously considering the 36-year-old Wayne. He was brutally inefficient despite playing with Andrew Luck last season and has undergone three surgeries (ACL, triceps, knee) in the last 20 months. The only way this makes sense is if the Texans or Ravens see Wayne as a mentor for rookies Jaelen Strong and Breshad Perriman, respectively. The Packers and Patriots don't have room for Wayne in their wideout corps.

Free agent WR Reggie Wayne said "teams have been calling" and he "plans to play" this season.

We're assuming Wayne means NFL teams. He looked washed up last season, posting an abysmal 58.2 percent catch rate despite running high-percentage routes in the league's most prolific passing offense outside of Green Bay. Now heading into his age-37 season and coming off a 2013 torn ACL and 2014 torn triceps in addition to an offseason knee scope, Wayne looks like a guy just trying to hang on. If signed, he shouldn't get any guaranteed money or be guaranteed a roster spot. Perhaps Wayne could mentor a younger receiving corps.

Free agent Reggie Wayne wants to play in 2015 if the "situation is right."

Speaking to RTV6's Mike Chappell, Wayne also revealed he's recovering from a knee scope in addition to his previously-disclosed triceps surgery. He expects to be healthy for training camp. Wayne said he told the Colts he wanted to play one more season before they decided to move on. Wayne hasn't generated an iota of interest in free agency, though a market could develop once he's in better health. Wayne was close to out of gas last season, but teams could be interested in his leadership and sure hands on a low-cost deal.
Apr 2 - 6:17 PM

The Indianapolis Star reports free agent Reggie Wayne will consider playing for a team other than the Colts.

Wayne had said he would not play for any other team, but the Colts decision to not even offer him a new contract has changed his mind. 36-years-old and coming off a dismal season, it is not guaranteed Wayne will receive any offers even if he is open to playing somewhere else. The future Hall of Famer may be coming to the end of the road.
Mar 7 - 12:11 PM

The Colts announced they will not re-sign free agent Reggie Wayne.

NFL free agency is not for the faint of heart. Already this week we've seen the Pats kick Vince Wilfork to the curb, the Steelers practically beg Troy Polamalu to hang up his cleats and now Wayne, an Indianapolis lifer, is being shown the door. Wayne hasn't been the same player since his 2013 ACL tear and at 36, a return to form is beyond unlikely. Wayne was only 235 yards away from tying Marvin Harrison for the most receiving yards in Colts history. Given his age and recent injuries, Wayne will probably have to settle for a one-year minimum deal if he hopes to keep playing.

Free agent Reggie Wayne recently underwent triceps surgery and is mulling whether to play or retire.

36 years old and having lost his effectiveness, Wayne would command no more than minimum-salary offers if he did decide to play one more season. He tore his ACL in 2013 and his triceps in 2014. The Colts would be better off moving forward with Donte Moncrief as the "X" receiver to T.Y. Hilton's Z.
Feb 27 - 4:26 PM

Colts GM Ryan Grigson indicated at the Combine that he's unsure of free agent Reggie Wayne's desire to keep playing.

Wayne's performance fell off a cliff in 2014 as he attempted to return from a torn ACL at age 36. He had a negative impact on Indianapolis' offense. Grigson acknowledged Wayne still means a lot "to the organization," but his future is "up in the air." We would not expect Wayne back in Indy.
Feb 19 - 2:40 PM

Free agent Reggie Wayne said Monday he's still undecided on if he'll try to play again in 2015.

Just one year removed from an ACL tear and then fighting through a partially torn triceps, Wayne was brutally ineffective this season. The Colts saw it, as they phased the future Hall of Famer out down the stretch (zero catches, 37.5 percent of the snaps in the AFC Championship Game). If the Colts do bring back the 36-year-old Wayne next season, it will have to be in a depth and mentor role. He needs surgery to repair the tricep this offseason.
Jan 20 - 8:34 AM

Reggie Wayne was held without a catch in Sunday's AFC Championship Game loss at New England.

If this is the end, it's a sad way for the future Hall of Famer to go out. The Patriots didn't even bother wasting Darrelle Revis on Wayne, who tried and failed to come back from an ACL tear at age 36. He caught just 64 passes for 779 yards with two touchdowns on the year, looking like a wounded deer in the rare instances he got in the open field. On Sunday night, Wayne said he will need elbow surgery and added that he didn't know if he would return for a 15th NFL season. Even if he does and the Colts accept him, he couldn't be anything more than a No. 4 or 5 WR and mentor.

Reggie Wayne was held catch-less on one target in the Colts' Divisional Round win over the Broncos.

Wayne had some nice blocks in the running game, but was a non-factor as usual as a receiver. Peyton Manning looked washed up in Sunday's playoff game, and so does his old teammate. Don't expect 36-year-old Wayne to reemerge as a passing-game weapon in the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.
Jan 11 - 7:59 PM

The Colts have yet to talk about Reggie Wayne's future.

"Haven't talked to Reggie yet," were the words of owner Jim Irsay on Tuesday. "We're just focused on (the Divisional Round)." Now 36, Wayne is an impending free agent whose play fell off a cliff this season after he tore his ACL midway through his 2013 campaign. A Colt every year since they made him the No. 30 overall pick of the 2001 draft, Wayne is likely giving retirement a serious thought.
Jan 6 - 4:10 PM

Reggie Wayne caught 1-of-2 targets for 12 yards in the Colts' Wild Card win over the Bengals.

Wayne's grab elicited a thankful cheer from the home crowd, but he was a distant seventh on Andrew Luck's targets totem pole. Operating at less than 100 percent, the aging wideout is unlikely to be a big part of the game plan for Indy's Divisional Round trip to Denver.
