Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne revealed in a radio interview with WNDE in Indianapolis that he took less money to stay in Indy and remain a Colt.
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.
