Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Colts agreed to a three-year contract with Wayne, bringing the veteran receiver back to Indy as, presumably, Andrew Luck’s top future target.
NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports the pact is worth a “max” of $17.5 million.
Between his desire to become a package deal with Peyton Manning (so much for that) and Indianapolis’ unwillingness to reach out to the 33-year-old, this seemed like the last place Wayne would end up.
But this is precisely what makes free agency so thrilling, like a Christmas morning; you may have a pretty good idea of what you’re getting, but there’s also bound to be a surprise or two thrown in.
Count this in as one of the surprises.
