Although his numbers weren’t always gaudy, Reggie Wayne was a special talent during his days in Indianapolis. Breaking the 100-catch mark on numerous occasions, he was the go-to target for the Colts during his final few seasons in the NFL.

Unfortunately, as great as Wayne was during his days with the Colts, it seems as though he’ll always be seen as the Robin to Marvin Harrison’s Batman. He spent much of his career in the Hall of Famer’s shadow, although a couple of his best seasons came after his predecessor’s retirement in 2008.

Still, no matter how you see it, Wayne was a star in his own right. Owning the No. 2 spot for nearly every Colts receiving record, he’ll undoubtedly go down as one of the franchise’s all-time best pass catchers.

Harrison or not, Wayne’s resume is impressive. Just remember that he’s got one Super Bowl ring, seven Pro Bowl selections, three All-Pro honors and a receiving yards title (2007) to his credit. That’s quite the showing, even from a college legend and second-round pick.
