Wayne played most of his career with the Colts, but began this season with the New England Patriots. He asked for his release after the final preseason game and did not play at all this year. Wayne points to November 29th, when he attended a Colts game as a fan for the first time since college, as to when he made up his mind.
The six-time Pro Bowler ranks seventh in NFL history with 1,070 receptions and eighth with 14,345 receiving yards. Over 14 seasons he recorded 82 touchdown catches, all of which came with the Colts, where he won his lone Super Bowl.
The two parties parted ways after the 2014 season, but not on bad terms. Owner Jim Irsay called Wayne "one of the greatest men to ever wear the horseshoe."
The star receiver is the Colts' franchise leader with 211 regular season games played and 143 wins. He ranks second in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdown catches. He also recorded 43 100-yard games and caught a pass in 143 straight games, all of which ranks second in Colts history.
Wayne seemed very content with this decision, as he realized at that Colts game in November, it's time for him to be a fan.
