Reggie Wayne to be Inducted into Colts Ring of Honor
The Colts announced that great wide receiver Reggie Wayne will be inducted into their Ring of Honor this season.
Reggie Wayne is getting honored. The Colts announced that the wide receiver is going to be induced into their Ring of Honor on November 18th. The game is in week 11 against the Titans. Wayne played for the Colts from 2001-2014.
Wayne was a great receiver in his time in Indianapolis. He was selected to the Pro Bowl six times in his career. He also was selected to the First team All Pro in 2010. Wayne led the league in receiving in 2007.
The Colts announced the news on their twitter account.
Wayne also was able to have 100 catches four separate seasons. He teamed up with Marvin Harrison to form one of the best receiving tandems in league history. His crowning achievement was winning the Super Bowl in 2006.
The wide receiver also bridged the gap between quarterbacks. He played for Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck. He was an extremely valuable player to have in the locker room. Wayne helped Luck learn how to be a leader and a pro during his rookie year.
Unfortunately, Wayne tore his ACL in 2013 seven games into the season after he tried to catch a short throw by Luck. He was never quite the same after that, and suffered an arm injury as well. Once he lost his explosiveness, he wasn’t as an effective receiver.

There will be plenty of former Colts greats at the ceremony in November to support their former teammate. He is inducted just after other greats Marvin Harrison, Peyton Manning, and Jeff Saturday. He will surely be followed by Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis soon as well.
