There have been a few times Reggie Wayne has almost let his frustration about this season boil over, but he has a routine that keeps him in check.
“The only way I go without snapping [with] the media is every game when I come in, first thing I do is put my helmet and stuff down and grab my phone,” Wayne told Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star. “Always got a text message from my wife and it’s a picture of my kids.
“I don’t think she’s doing it on purpose, but when I see my kids, that calms the storm. They bring everything back.”
Wayne was especially frustrated after his last game. He caught three passes for 13 yards against Jacksonville. His contract year has included only 42 catches for 530 yards without Peyton Manning.
We thought Wayne would move on from the Colts after this year year, but the best contract offer he may get is to stay put.
“I always feel ‘this week’ I’m going to have a big game,” Wayne said. “So, [today] is going to be my big game of the year. Won’t be hard, you know what I mean?”
Wayne is running out of Sundays to make that happen. And the Colts are running out of good chances to avoid going down in NFL infamy.
