Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne Could Be Package Deal

If (when) the Indianapolis Colts release quarterback Peyton Manning, he and unrestricted free agent wide receiver Reggie Wayne could be a package deal, Peter King of Sports Illustrated suggests.

Wayne, 33, has caught 862 passes for 11,708 yards and 73 touchdowns, mostly from Manning, Wayne's quarterback for 10 of the last 11 seasons. Wayne had seven straight 1,000-yard seasons from 2004-10 and went to five straight Pro Bowls from 2006-10 before playing without Manning in 2011.

King adds that the Miami Dolphins could be a suitor for the duo. The Dolphins need a quarterback, owner Stephen Ross needs to reinvigorate the ticket-buying public, Manning and his wife have had a condo in Miami for years and Wayne played his college ball at Miami and lives in the Miami area in the off-season.

The New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks, Washington Redskins, Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs are also listed as potential suitors for the 18-to-87 Combo.
