Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne said he took less money to stay with the Indianapolis Colts.
Wayne said he didn't expect to be with the Colts again as free agency wore on, but when they called, he decided to come back.
"I will say I took a lot less money. I will say that, but this is where my heart was, this is where I wanted to be."
So far, his decision has paid off. The 33-year-old Wayne, with 12 NFL seasons of experience, looked spry and played well in the Colts' season-opening loss to the Chicago Bears last Sunday. He looked to have a good connection with rookie quarterback Andrew Luck.
Wayne had some glowing compliments for his quarterback, Luck, saying that the Colts "picked the right guy" and that Luck is already a leader in the huddle and will be very good one day.
