The Patriots just ripped the hearts out of the Colts organization and stomped on it and spit on it, by agreeing to a one year contract with WR Reggie Wayne, according to Adam Schefter.
The Patriots routed the Colts 45-7 during the AFC Championship Game back in January. The Colts are the team who got this whole deflategate thing rolling, and thanks to them, Brady may be facing a four-game suspension. Safe to say, the Pats and Colts hate each other, and now you can add this move by the Pats to the list of reasons why this rivalry is becoming one of the best in the NFL.
Wayne has spent the past 14 years in a Colts uniform, becoming one of the best players in Colts franchise history. He has played in 211 games for the Colts, catching 1,070 passes for 14,345 yards and 82 touchdowns. He also recorded 759 first downs while in Indy.
In the postseason for Indianapolis, he played in 21 games, catching 93 passes for 1,254 yards and 9 touchdowns.
During the 2014 season, Wayne played in 15 games, catching 64 passes for 779 yards and 2 touchdowns.
He played in 3 postseason games, catching 1 pass for 12 yards.
He dealt with injuries last year, and underwent triceps and knee surgery this offseason.
Reports came yesterday, that the veteran WR was in New England to take a physical, and he must have been healthy enough because today he signed on the dotted line with New England.
The Patriots are waiting on two of their starting wide receivers to get healthy, Edelman and LaFell still out with injuries, and add to that list with Dobson, Tyms, and Brandon Gibson dealing with injuries.
They need extra depth at wide out, so Wayne is here to provide that, and the Pats will get a look at the 36 year old receiver and see if he still has it.
