Still, the Patriots appear adamant about signing their former foe after a number of injuries left the team depleted at wide receiver. Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell are both battling injuries, leaving an oft-injured Danny Amendola and youngsters Aaron Dobbs and Josh Boyce to fill the void.
Could Reggie Wayne be suiting up for the New England Patriots next season? He ranks second in franchise history in receptions (1,070), receiving yards (14,345), receiving touchdowns (80), 100-yard games (43) and consecutive games with a reception (134).
Wayne, 36, played 14 seasons in Indianapolis after being selected in the first round of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Colts. He caught 64 passes for 779 yards with two touchdowns in 15 games.
“He’s obviously just a tremendous wide receiver”, Belichick
Bill Belichick did not make reference to Wayne being in town during his conference call on Sunday. He’s really a very dependable and reliable guy. Hell, Wayne could end up playing a big role. He has played his entire 14-year career with Colts. He closed out the season with just one catch in Indy’s three postseason contests before having surgery on his triceps and knee this offseason, but he may get a chance to keep his NFL career going if the physical goes well and Belichick thinks his experience can help the Patriots this year.
