Reggie Wayne joins the New England Patriots on one year deal

Published 1 Comments

The Deflategate saga is still rumbling on, with no end in sight for the controversy that has dominated NFL headlines over the off-season.

At the moment, Tom Brady is still banned for the first four games of the 2015 season, no matter how much the New England Patriots and NFLPA are fighting the suspension in a court in New York.

That leaves Jimmy Garoppolo as starting quarterback for the first four games of the season, and the Patriots have now decided to bring in some veteran help for the youngster.

Wayne the Patriot

According to a report from ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Patriots have signed Reggie Wayne to a one-year deal.

The wideout was an absolute iron-man for the Colts throughout his exceptional career in the National Football League. 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 hasn't now, despite a troubled injury history.

In addition to his triceps injury, Wayne also suffered 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.

If the Patriots can get Wayne healthy then they could have a very tidy pickup on their hands, one who can provide veteran on-field leadership and show the way for the likes of Garoppolo, while providing him with a safe target.
