Is Reggie Wayne’s NFL Career Over?

The former Indianapolis Colts star asked for and was granted his release Saturday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source close to the veteran wide receiver. Wayne is evaluating options for his future, a source told NFL Media’s Rand Getlin.

Wayne caught two passes for 24 yards in two preseason games after receiving a $450K signing bonus to join the New England Patriots on Aug. 24.

Just two days ago, Wayne expressed support for Tom Bradys suspension nullification and optimism for his own future in New England.

“That’s my quarterback. … I’m excited he’s available,” Wayne said. “Now Reggie’s gotta take care of what Reggie’s gotta take care of. That’s getting in my playbook, correcting all of the mistakes I made tonight and get better. I’ve only been here a week and-a-half or so, so I’m behind the eight-ball.”ReggieWayne

Could this be the end of the line for the 36-year-old, who was a liability last year while playing through a torn triceps in addition to knee and elbow injuries last season.

Wayne’s 14,345 receiving yards are the eighth-most in NFL history, just 235 behind former teammate Marvin Harrison. As a six-time Pro-Bowl selection with impressive career numbers, he has strong Hall of Fame credentials.

Could your team need another receiver? Would you sign Reggie Wayne to your team? Or do you hope he retires and closes out a great career without trying to hang on to long and diminishing said great career?
