Reggie Wayne interested in Patriots: ‘Who wouldn’t want to play there?’
Reggie Wayne is 33 years old and a free agent. The Colts don’t seem interested in bringing him back considering his skills are declining and the organization is rebuilding. What’s surprising is that he’s interested in playing for their AFC rival.
Former Patriots linebacker Willie McGinnest says he and Wayne had a conversation about the receiver joining New England.
“It came up in the conversation would he ever want to play for the Patriots,” McGinest said. “He smiled and said, ‘Who wouldn’t want to play there?’
I guess chalk that up to disliking your rival but respecting them too. Maybe Wayne wants to go to New England to stick it to Indy for not showing interest in him. Or maybe he just sees how consistently successful the Pats are and he wants to be a part of it. I bet it’s a little bit of both.
