If Reggie Wayne leaves the Colts (1 Viewer)

Stokely, Moorehead or Walters?

And where could Wayne land?

Or does he stay in Indy?
IF he were to leave, I think his replacement would be someone not currently on the roster.Where could he land and prosper? I would say Denver, Philly, KC, NE are reasonable choices.

But, as I've said in other posts, I think he stays in Indy for one more year at least.

I agree that the 2nd receiver would come from elsewhere.I think Philly is talked about as a likely place Wayne would go if he is not re-signed - but I'm not sure about Denver or not (I think it would be a good fit - I don't know what their cap situation is). I don't see KC as likely because they are way over the cap - and I don't see NE as likely because he doesn't fit as the type of receivers NE typically has (very, very quick).

DJ, I said where he could prosper, not where he could fit. I think it takes a balanced offense with a very good to great QB.What he doesn't want to do is go somewhere like Atlanta, Pittsburg, Cleveland.

Oh - I see what you are saying. I think he'd help Pittsburgh quite a bit - they need a 2nd receiver to improve next year - but his stats would be hurt of course.
 
I think they would look outside the organization...they need someone to at least keep the defense a little honest when covering Harrison, their current roster does not have a player capable of this.

 
I believe Wayne will re-sign with the Colts for a 1-yr deal with the hope that in 2007 there is no salary cap and he can cash in big time somewhere.

 
*IF* Wayne winds up leaving, it will to be the #1 WR somewhere... he's not going to go to a team like P'burgh to continue being the #2 option.

Partial hijack here, but honestly what are the chances of the NFL having *NO CAP* after the current CBA expires? (I admit ignorance here as i'm not much of a NFL 'capologist...')
 
if reggie wayne leaves the colts, reggie wayne benefits the most..he doesn't go somewhere else where another marvin harrison is playing opposite him..he can finally be a 1-man wrecking crew..many teams need a WR of his caliber..he could be a stud..I know marvin has helped him become such a force, since defenses can;t double-team Wayne, but marvin also takes alot of action away from wayne..

Absolutely no chance. There will certainly be a hold out before an 'uncapped' season(s). :cry:
 
Can Wayne be a true #1? He certainly has the physical tools and his productivity has been solid. But if I were an opposing GM, I would be VERY wary of giving him huge bucks given that he's been in a near perfect situation and almost certainly shouldn't be expected to duplicate that success elsewhere. A new team = lesser QB [unless he goes to the Pats], no Harrison opposite him, no all-world RB keeping defenses honest, new system, new OC [Tom Moore is among the best]...I would pay him, but not the $$$ he likely wants or will get from some team.

 
He might look good in a Charger uniform. McCardell's getting on, Parker continues to get hurt, Caldwell hasn't stepped up and Vinnie is a year or two away. With Gates around he'd be the #1 "wide reciever" but wouldn't draw true #1 receiver attention. They should have the cap space - but honestly I hope the Chargers spend it elsewhere (defensive backfield, offensive line) if they don't help themselves in the draft. Then again if Vinnie develops having him and Wayne for a few years would be kinda nice - Air Shottenheimer!

One of the ways in which John Butler was very different from AJ Smith is that Butler was willing to spend big bucks on the top free agents (Marcellus Wiley, Donnie Edwards, David Boston) while AJ Smith has targeted blue-collar free agents (Steve Foley, Mike Goff, Randall Godfrey) and AJ Smith immediately gets rid of anyone who doesn't have the attitude he wants (David Boston, Toniu Fonoti).There's no way AJ would ever sign TO.

That wasn't Marty, that was the idiot GM (who must not be named - can not be named - the name must not be said) who was with the Chargers before A.J.Marty did his best with it, but sometimes you just can't make that lemonade.

I don't see Owens as a good fit for the Chargers. I don't think they'll want to pay him or run the risk of upsetting the applecart. Further they're not an Owens away from a championship, they're a defensive backfield and a couple of good young offensive linemen away. An upgrade at receiver is a nice to have, not a must have and I think Wayne would fit the bill nicely at a reduced cost (in many ways) to Owens.

 
Colts' WR2 not named Wayne = a decent fantasy WR3
There was plenty of history of this in the pre-Wayne days. Manning always threw for 4,000 yards, but Harrison was the only decent fantasy WR on the Colts. Everyone kept asking, "Can you imagine if the Colts get a decent WR2?"Eventually, Wayne became that guy. If he leaves, I suspect things in Indy WR Land will return to roughly the way they were in the pre-Wayne era.

IMO, Harrison = top-3 fantasy WR again without Wayne on the team - heck, he's top-5 WITH Wayne - Harrison could get back to being the #1 fantasy receiver without Wayne on the team.

:) Sounds a lot like the Peerless Price situation a few years ago. A GM went looking for a number 1, gave Price the big bucks and look where he is now... :thumbdown:
 
xcept Price had only had one decent season - Wayne has been a steadily improving player since he entered the league.

 
Im no capologist, but the numbers indicate that for 2006 Denver and KC are in the top 4 teams over the cap ... I think Lelie and Sammie Parker are looking good for next year ...Chargers are wayyyyy under ...

Odds are you're right MT, BUT...Andy Reid NEVER signed 30+ year old free agents OR spent big $$$ on the wide receiver position prior to signing TO too. You never know...
 
if reggie wayne leaves the colts, reggie wayne benefits the most..

he doesn't go somewhere else where another marvin harrison is playing opposite him..

he can finally be a 1-man wrecking crew..

many teams need a WR of his caliber..he could be a stud..I know marvin has helped him become such a force, since defenses can;t double-team Wayne, but marvin also takes alot of action away from wayne..
Unfortunately, losing Harrison also means losing Manning and I think you could see a fall of Peerless Price proportions.I just don't see Wayne as a one may wrecking crew. Nor do I see an aging Marvin as "competition" for Wayne. Put simply, he has the best QB in the game throwing the ball and a hall of fame receiver on the other side to draw coverage. Where can he go that is not a step down?

Who benefits? Harrison short term. Whoever steps up to the new Indy #2 in the long run.

I agree with this
