The Colts have announced that they will induct wide receiver Reggie Wayne into their Ring of Honor. He will be the 15th person inducted into their Ring of Honor.
The Colts have had a rash of great talent in the last 15 years or so. They have had some very good players in Indy. Reggie Wayne is about to be one of the newest members of the modern era to get honored.
Wayne played for the Colts from 2001 to 2014. He was drafted in the first round out of the University of Miami. He was drafted to pair with Marvin Harrison and be another deep threat for Peyton manning to throw to.
The Colts announced that Wayne would be inducted into their Ring of Honor on their official twitter account.
Wayne will be the first Colt inducted since last season when Peyton Manning got the honor, while also unveiling his statue. Wayne definitely deserves the honor. He ranks in the top 10 all time in receptions and receiving yards, and was one of the most durable Colts ever. He has played in the most games in franchise history.
Wayne also had seven straight 1,000 yard seasons. He was also one of the few players that transitioned into the Andrew Luck era. Wayne was Luck’s go-to wide receiver early in Luck’s career. Luck has talked about the impact that Wayne had in the locker-room as well. He acted as a mentor to him.
Wayne joins a plethora of 2000’s era Colts that have been inducted into the Ring. He joins Manning, Marvin Harrison, Edgerrin James, Jeff Saturday, GM Bill Polian, and head coach Tony Dungy. While a date hasn’t been announced for Wayne’s induction, it will happen sometime during next season.
