Reggie Wayne isn’t tied to Peyton

With free agency starting in less than two hours and receiver Reggie Wayne sounding downright giddy last week about the prospect of playing once again with Peyton Manning, some think that Reggie will wait for Peyton to pick a new team before doing the same.

That’s not necessarily the case.

A source with knowledge of Wayne’s thinking says the soon-to-be-former Colt will do what’s best for him.  Though that may include playing with Peyton, it may not.

It’s also possible that a team that wants Peyton will try to sign Wayne now, as what we’ve begun to call “Peyton bait.”  (The trademark application is pending; the T-shirts will be available next week.)

An eleven-year veteran, Wayne joined the Colts via the first round of the 2001 draft.  He has 862 career receptions, 11,708 yards, and 73 touchdowns.

    Move over T.O., here comes Reggie Wayne…..

    Only a complete idiot would think he was exclusively tied to Peyton and write numerous articles about it.

    Wayne wants the ball. I think the people that think he’d love to join Manning (if he signs with the Cardinals) and Fitz in Arizona are dreaming.

    Maybe he can field punts from Brandon Marshall down in the 305.

    peyton is experienced, thorough and hardworking. He needs good receivers to be successful, but Reggie Wayne is not necessary to that success.

    After Manning threw him under the bus a couple seasons back and after Wayne publically disparaged Manning for not getting him the ball enough in their SB loss, I’m surprised they’d want to still play together. Then again I guess the benefits out weigh the consequences with a tandem like that.

    RG III to Reggie Wayne…Bruce will make the numbers work

  8. zampft says: Mar 13, 2012 2:30 PM

    haha Peyton Bait

  9. whatnojets says: Mar 13, 2012 2:30 PM

    Where are all the New York Jets headlines?!?!

    I am sure that Sexy Rexy has something up his toe!!’

    Can’t wait for 4:01 to hit……The New York Jets signed……..!!

  10. nyyjetsknicks says: Mar 13, 2012 2:31 PM

    Meaning I’m playing for the Dolphins and Peyton isn’t.

  11. eaglesw00t says: Mar 13, 2012 2:31 PM

    Man, Im sure glad the Eagles picked Freddie Mitchell that year. We could have ended up with a head case like Wayne or something…

  12. nineroutsider says: Mar 13, 2012 2:32 PM

    Reggie and Randy in SF; I could see Wayne not getting top dollar which makes him a candidate for the 9ers. Anyone getting top scratch has no chance with the 9ers.

    Would prefer to keep Joshua Morgan though…

    Miami makes sense for both of them. Marshall and Wayne with fasano and peyton throwing to them makes sense for Miami.

  14. sj39 says: Mar 13, 2012 2:33 PM

    WOuld some team just sign Payton already? This is getting old. And while we’re at it how about a decision on the bounty scandle?

  15. whatnojets says: Mar 13, 2012 2:35 PM

    Peyton Manning will visit the Edmonton Eskimos tomorrow morning at an undisclosed location.

  16. crisper57 says: Mar 13, 2012 2:35 PM

    Translation: Wayne desperately wants to go to Miami, but knows they’ve been eliminated from the Peyton Manning sweepstakes.

  17. duncanthecat says: Mar 13, 2012 2:35 PM

    Eric Winston is…

  18. blaz0037 says: Mar 13, 2012 2:35 PM

    Peyton’s camp wants Houston.

  19. realnflmaster says: Mar 13, 2012 2:36 PM

    Sign him JETS! 4 years/7.5 per. Help us begin our dynasty with the newly signed and motivated Sanchez.

    Wooooo.

  20. clayjayhawk says: Mar 13, 2012 2:37 PM

    maybe peyton and reggie can join t.o. . they could tear up the IFL

  21. astrosfan75956 says: Mar 13, 2012 2:39 PM

    Peyton needs to sign with Houston, oh and Reggie can come too if he’d like.

  22. steeltuff says: Mar 13, 2012 2:42 PM

    Yeah, right. Reggie knows what’s right for him . . . receiving a ten-yard pass on a slant pattern from #18.

  23. weskcfan says: Mar 13, 2012 2:42 PM

    I’d love to see Reggie Wayne with a KC Arrowhead on the side of his helmet. While his best days may be in the rearview mirror, he still had 80+ catches last year, and I think his work ethic may rub off of D-Bowe in the end.

  24. nflsucker says: Mar 13, 2012 2:49 PM

    Good thing Mark Sanchez isn’t a good enough quarterback for anyone to concoct “Sanchez bait”.

  25. sagatti says: Mar 13, 2012 2:52 PM

    Wayne knows peyton may not go to Miami. He wants to… Peyton will do what is right for Peyton..Wayne should do the same.

  26. gmsalpha says: Mar 13, 2012 2:53 PM

    Reggie was giddy last week at the idea of playing with Peyton in Miami. In Miami is the key. Wayne will be a Dolphin and he’d. Wry much like Manning as his QB, but if Manning goes elsewhere (he will), then so be it.

    Houston has zero cap room for EITHER – stop living in fantasy land

  28. dalfanforever says: Mar 13, 2012 3:00 PM

    No they’re not tied together…but they should be…

  29. trubroncfan07 says: Mar 13, 2012 3:11 PM

    Matt Moore is going to be one happy guy!

  30. indywilson40 says: Mar 13, 2012 3:18 PM

    Touchdownroddywhite, you consistantly have the dumbest post on here. When did Manning ever throw Wayne under the bus? Never. And the only time Wayne ever complained about not getting enough touches was after the Jets playoff loss, not the Super Bowl. Manning and Wayne have always had a great relationship. Quit making up stories.

  31. supremeomega says: Mar 13, 2012 3:18 PM

    You mean he is a grown adult with his own family and personal goals?! And that his teammates were coworkers and not his actual brothers?! Wow!!! What a shock…

  32. truthhurtstoo says: Mar 13, 2012 3:19 PM

    Help us begin our dynasty with the newly signed and motivated Sanchez?

    Hey… how are those knicks doing? Dynasty and the nj jet franchise should never be used together… check that, their dynasty of losing would qualify.

  33. phreakin says: Mar 13, 2012 3:43 PM

    Guarantee he wants another ring more than he wants the ball stealthhawk

  34. bunkmcnulty says: Mar 13, 2012 4:02 PM

    I am not into predictions like those who act like they know something by saying “you heard it here first.”

    But RW’s best friend is Ed Reed. There are other U connections in Baltimore. He could do worse, much worse. And a huge upgrade from Lee Evans.

    I’d love to see it.
