Colts veteran WR Reggie Wayne is expected to hit the free agent market come March 13th.
That according to the Terre-Haute Tribune Star, who spoke with Colts owner Jim Irsay. Irsay was quoted as saying that their free agent priorities in terms of re-signing their own were with DE Robert Mathis and WR Pierre Garcon. Garcon is eight years younger than the 33-year old Wayne and is clearly seen as a bridge to the future with Irsay admitting the club is in a rebuilding mode.
Wayne was never a speed receiver and at 33 runs a 4.6 40. Buffalo is looking for speed outside to pair with Stevie Johnson provided a new deal can be struck with their top wideout as he’s also a free agent.
Mathis is 30-years old, but Irsay sounded determined to keep the bookend pass rushers (Mathis and Freeney) together.
