Free agent Reggie Wayne told CBS 4 Indianapolis that he plans to retire.
"Yeah, I’m done," said Wayne. "It was fun, but it’s time. Whenever you can admit that you’re done, you know you’re done." Wayne went unsigned following the 2014 season until September, when he flopped in a two-week preseason stint with the Patriots. Wayne, 37, wound up playing 14 seasons and earning six Pro Bowl berths. Wayne changed his game over the course of his career, beginning as a deep-threat complement to Marvin Harrison before playing a possession-type slot receiver role in his later years. Wayne will retire seventh in the all-time record books in receptions (1,070) and eighth in receiving yards (14,345). Wayne figures to be a fringe Hall of Famer but a lock for the Colts' Ring of Honor. Jan 15 - 8:19 PM

According to CBS Boston's Scott Zolak, free agent Reggie Wayne requested his release from the Patriots because he found the "work environment too tough," and "not fun" in Foxboro.

Keep in mind Zolak is a notorious Patriots homer who's not exactly objective on Pats-related matters. In any case, multiple reports Saturday indicated Wayne indeed asked for his release, and coach Bill Belichick called the decision "mutual" on cut-down day. Wayne is reportedly now considering retirement, but would be open to playing one more year if the right team pursues him.

Patriots released WR Reggie Wayne.

Wayne will presumably be giving back his $450,000 signing bonus. It's a good bet that Wayne is considering retirement after 11 days in Pats camp. Now 36, Wayne simply couldn't run last season.
Sat, Sep 5, 2015 03:49:00 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Reggie Wayne will not be a part of the Patriots' 53-man roster.

It's unclear if Wayne is being released or placed on injured reserve. Either way, it's an upset after Wayne received a $450,000 signing bonus just 11 days ago. It could be a sign the Pats are confident in Brandon LaFell's (foot) health, or simply an admission that Wayne has nothing left. Wayne was a shell of his former self for the Colts last season.

Reggie Wayne was held without a catch in the Patriots' third preseason game.

Wayne played extensively with the Tom Brady group, appearing on four of the first six snaps of the game and 20 snaps in all. Wayne dropped his lone target against the Panthers, but appears ticketed for an early-season role just three days after signing with New England. While we're skeptical of what Wayne has left going on age 37 after back-to-back year-ending injuries, any Patriots skill-position player is at very least worth monitoring in fantasy leagues.

Reggie Wayne's one-year deal with the Pats is worth a "maximum" of $2.8 million, and includes a $450,000 signing bonus.

It's not a bad guarantee for a player who wallowed on the open market until three weeks before opening day. It's a pretty strong indication Wayne will make the 53-man roster.
Tue, Aug 25, 2015 01:32:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Reggie Wayne's one-year contract with the Patriots is "worth up to nearly $3 million, including incentives."

Rapoport added Wayne got "almost $500k up front." Like RB Chris Johnson's deal with the Cardinals last week, these "incentives" are probably close to impossible for Wayne to reach. The nearly $500,000 guarantee is a big chunk of change, however, indicating New England expects Wayne to hang around the roster all season.

Patriots signed WR Reggie Wayne, formerly of the Colts, to a one-year contract.

The No. 30 overall pick of the 2001 draft, all 211 of Wayne's career appearances have come with the Colts. His signing could be related to Brandon LaFell's (PUP, undisclosed) health, but the reality is that Wayne will mostly be serving in a mascot role, providing leadership and a sure pair of hands. Wayne appeared to have very little left as he made his way back from a torn ACL last season. He was also slowed by a triceps injury. Of course, he's now a year healthier. Wayne turns 37 in November. He's not on the re-draft radar.

Ex-teammate T.Y. Hilton says free agent Reggie Wayne is "dead set" on playing one more season.

Hilton's word comes as the 36 year old is finally getting some play in free agency. Wayne reportedly visited the Patriots on Sunday, and the Packers are expected to express interest after losing Jordy Nelson for the season. Wayne has very little left, but would offer sure hands and veteran influence at the back end of a receiver corps.
Mon, Aug 24, 2015 01:17:00 PM

ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini reports the Packers will reach out to free agent WR Reggie Wayne.

Following the season-ending ACL tear to Jordy Nelson, Wayne could bring some veteran stability to the Packers' youngish receiving corps. Wayne had a physical with the Patriots on Sunday, but he has yet to reach an agreement. After not receiving much interest over the summer, it appears Wayne will find a new home early this week.
Mon, Aug 24, 2015 10:33:00 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent WR Reggie Wayne arrived in New England Saturday night and will take his physical with the Patriots on Sunday.

It would be pretty jarring to see Wayne, a Colts lifer, defect to the hated Patriots, but now it seems like a real possibility. The Patriots don't have a ton of depth at wide receiver behind Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell and both of those players have been out with injuries. Wayne logged a respectable 779 yards last season but didn't show the same burst he had early in his career. Young receivers like Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce could certainly learn a thing or two from the veteran. Given Wayne's health issues over the last few years, it's not a guarantee that he'll pass his physical.

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.

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.
