    Colts Lock Up Wayne For Nearly 40 Million

    Colts lock up Wayne for nearly $40 million

    Jay Glazer / FOXSports.com
    Posted: 1 hour ago



    The free-agency period has yet to begin but one potential free agent has already hit for a big payday.

    FOXSports.com has learned that the Colts agreed to terms Wednesday with wide receiver Reggie Wayne on a six-year deal worth nearly $40 million including $13.5 million in bonus money. Wayne was slated to become an unrestricted free agent and his signing now weakens an already extremely weak receiver free agent class.
    While the contract terms have been agreed upon by both sides Wayne has not yet officially signed and should as soon as the NFL approves the deal.

    The deal also makes him the third highest-paid receiver in the NFL behind teammate Marvin Harrison and Randy Moss. By getting the Wayne deal done the Colts do not have to use the franchise tag on him, a move they were primed to make had they not worked out a new contract. It's unclear whether they will use the tag on free agent running back Edgerrin James, but right now that appears to be unlikely.

    Wayne had 83 catches this past season for 1,055 yards and five touchdowns in the Colts' high-powered attack.



    Does this mean they will franchise Edgerin James? We may be out of the running for James now to with this signing..

    No it doesn't man...

    They still have Freeney and Cato June to resign.. They could tag either of them too if they want..

    This is actually good news.. Give him a HUGE contract!

    That is such a dumb move by the Colts. Why would they make Wayne the third highest paid reciever in the NFL. He is not even in the top 10 recievers in the league.

    There is no way they can afford to keep Edge now. Bring him on baby.

    My bad, I forgot about both Freeney and June. I guess we will still be in the running for James. I really like James style, and think he would be a great fit in Minnesota.

    Wow they have 2 of the 3 highest paid WR's... Horrible idea..

    They should have made a run at Randle El.. Or just gave Edge his money..

    No Sh!t, they have all that dough in two players. I don' think that is a very smart move. Especially when you are getting into those bigger contracts. If for some reason he gets hurt, or isn't playing up to their standards it will be hard for another team to take on his salary. Unless of course his contract is like Pepp's where there is hardly any guaranteed money.

    I think Reggie Wayne is over-raited....he reminds me of Burley here. With Harrison on the other side of the field, Defenses put all thier focus on Harrison. Just like Moss and Nate....as soon as Nate became a number 1 his numbers dropped....I think the same would happen to Reggie.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    I can just see the headline in the Star Tribune right now:

    Vikings Sign Edgerrin James To Multi-Year Contract in Free Agency
    Mike Lynn Nowhere In Sight, Thank God
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    If you need a WR and you don't like your choices in FA, take Chad Jackson from Florida.

    Wow that is a lot of money!

    Whatever Manning wants, he gets. Wow!

    Edge must be throwing stuff through his TV about right now, yelling and screaming.
