Reggie Wayne not coming to AFC West
By Bill Williamson
Reggie Wayne will not be a target for Peyton Manning in Denver nor will he be a replacement for Vincent Jackson in San Diego.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting Wayne will stick around in Indianapolis and help kick-start the Andrew Luck era. Schefter reports Wayne is staying with the Colts on a three-year deal. If Manning signs with Denver, Wayne would have been a potential target just as he would have been anywhere Manning signs.
Prior to free agency, the Chargers discussed Wayne as a possible replacement for Jackson if he left in free agency. That became a reality Thursday when Jackson agreed to terms with Tampa Bay on a five-year, $55.5 million deal.
So, the AFC West teams will have to come up with different plans.
