Reggie Wayne contemplating retiring from Colts and NFL

Published Add your comment

Reggie Wayne may very well have played his last down in the National Football League.

The Indianapolis Colts receiver has undergone surgery on a torn triceps and according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, doesn't know if he is going to return to the league for the 2015 season.

Wayne is currently rehabbing after the surgery, and the 35-year old is weighing up the decision whether or not to hang up his cleats.

In addition to his triceps injury, Wayne is also suffering from knee problems, as well as an elbow injury. It was even as far back as January when we heard that Wayne was on the fence about his playing status but still considering playing another season in the league.

The wideout has been an absolute ironman for the Colts throughout his exceptional career in the NFL. His 189 game streak was the third best for receivers in NFL history before that was sadly ended in 2013. But Wayne didn't give up then and he may not now.

Everything rests on whether or not Wayne believes he can play at a good enough standard. The man is a future Hall of Famer, no doubt about it, and after managing only 700 odd yards last year, it might be time for Wayne to realise he's on the slide.

Last season Wayne finished with 64 catches, 779 yards, and two receiving touchdowns. There is a clear drop off between his production now and what it was just a few years ago. It will be sad to see Reggie Wayne go, but if he does, it might just be for the best.
