Three Years, 17.5 Million

25 posts in this topic

Three years, 17.5 million - signing of the year?

Because Reggie has spent his entire career in Indianapolis, people tend to not look at it like that, but, in the NFL, this might have been the signing of the year. Where would the Colts currently be without him? I could see it looking pretty ugly currently... for Luck and the Colts.

Remember, most assumed he was gone. League wide, people were scratching their heads when he returned. He certainly made the right decision, though. He could have gone out with Cassel or someone passing him the ball. Instead, his performance this season, with a second QB, will probably lock up the HOF for him.

They say that true profit is made when you buy right....not when you sell.

Nice buy.

His decision to stay for less instantly made him one of my all time favorites. Maybe even #2 behind Peyton himself. I didn't think Reggie would even want to come back...

That's the other thing. He was always a fan favorite, but now it's gone to another level. Reggie will go down as one of the most popular Colts.

But for the signing itself - remember, Garcon got 42 million over 5 years.

I was so delighted when I saw Irsay's tweet: "REGGIE! REGGIE! REGGIE!". Great signing, he's playing his best in years.

I remember when I was watching the last game of the Colts at home and my heart broke when someone said that that could be the last game of Reggie for the Colts

It all goes back to the article that was posted not long ago. Where Reggie was talking about the day Pagano called him at home and said "we can't do it without you"! Reggie is playing for something greater than money! Top notch fellow in my opinion! When you get a group of good people with good intentions together, good things will happen. I love our franchise! It makes me proud to be a Colt fan.

Yeah I recall Reggie's first 2 seasons and thought ughhh and then he turned it on. His second contract was a reasonable contract for both sides and he outplayed it. And this contract was a solid contract that I thought we overpaid for in a rebuild team with a player on his end of the career but so far he has exceeded this one. He is playing as well as others being paid 8-12 mil IMO. I am glad he stayed as he is one of my only player jerseys left in my closet too. :)

Garcon who? I know not of whom you speak.

All I know is Reggie has beast mode engaged, and he's one of the best receivers in the entire league.

His previous links to Pagano have really paid off, I think without this he wouldn't have been as willing to stay, nor as motivated in the last few weeks. The man is on a mission.

Does he count for the CPOY running considering his "injury" last year of Painter at QB?

I thought this would be Reggie's last hurrah as a Colt last year. I'm so happy he stayed, and I am so thankful as a fan for his love of the game and Indianapolis.

If I am his agent, with the dead cap space coming off the books, I am asking for a raise, even if it is a $6 mil. raise over 3 years. It would be worth it for Irsay for putting people back in the seats and being a big part of the Colts' O being relevant again.

Yeah Reggie has beast mode fully engaged. He's so in beast mode right now that he may as well be friggin a Predacon. "Reggie Wayne TERRORIZE!" Which is what he is doing to opposing defenses. Only my fellow geeks will appreciate what I did there. :D

Seriously speaking though...the money spent on Reggie to bring him back this year was probably the best move made this off season outside of drafting Luck.

No doubt about it. Reggie made the right decision. He could have taken a few bucks and faded into obscurity elsewhere. Instead, in 2012, he's locking up the hall of fame with his play by doing it with a second QB.

If Reggie left, the Pats would have definitely gone after him.

Even Reggie is grateful to be back to a city that loves and adores him.

I imagine he wouldn't be happier anywhere else. At this rate, he could maybe beat Marvin's record.

Pats did go after him...it was reported they actually offered him more money. Reggie Wayne has long been one of my favorite Colts of all time. He's a consumate professional who leads by example, and this year is also leading more verbally with no PM. Hats off to him for doing what he is doing, which is unprecedented at his age, and the FO for keeping him around!

Yeah I had heard that the Pats went after him hard.

Reggie is definitely one of the best professionals in our team's history.

He and Marvin should one day be inducted into the HOF, even if there is a backload of receivers already.

Just be at a game when they anounce the players - there is no doubt who the fan favoriet is! REGGIE, REGGIE, REGGIE!!! Then it is Luck followed closely by Mathis and Freeney. Redding is fast becoming a favorite for his ablsoute cheerleader mode throughout the games for both the defense and offense. He is constantly pacing the sidelines pumping his fists and exorting both the offiense and defense to play harder. We Colts fans are indeed LUCKY to be witnessing the start of something very special yet again.

It was a big gamble for Reggie but how nicley it has paid off. They would not have the record they do if it were not for him. He is playing like his hands are made from glue. He will look good in Canton, Ohio. What a career!

He is playing the best I have ever seen him, and that is due in part to him moving around instead of staying on one side of the field. He is by far one of... if not the best route runners in the game. I expect him to set career highs in yardage this year.

    • After Sleeping on it...
      To the bolded, take a trip over to Dustin's write-up on Green.  That's probably where it started, at least on these forums.  I didn't necessarily get the comparison, either.  
    • Curt Maggitt UDFA
      If as suggested, all Maggitt has going for him is a decent pass rush and little else as far as run stopping or playing in space then... lol
    • Colts select Hassan Ridgeway, DL, Texas
      One 3 cone drill, for me, is about as relevant as his shoe size.... not very much.     The film, the film and then more film should be what they based his performance abilities (or lack thereof) along with their face to face interview.  My biggest concern for a couple of these guys is health, because we know all of them will get beat up (and have gotten beat up in college) and how many of them miss games.  There's little question he can play well when healthy... but will he (and others) be?  That's what we'll have to learn.  At least he's not a thug or likely to miss due to lack of weed control like so many others.  At least I hope that's not in his makeup.  The old "avail-ABILITY" issue is the biggest concern with all these guys.  
    • What's YouR Best Draft Story?
      watching Brady Quinn and Gino Smith check their watch every 5 minutes wishing they were anywhere but in the Green Room. lol 
    • How could we pass on Whitehair in the 2nd round?
      I also wanted the Colts to get Whitehair, because of the rating he was given by the draft analysts I am basing my knowledge off of, but to the question of "how could the Colts pass on him?" , the answer is simple, because the Colt's management (GM, Coach, Scouts, Owner) were obviously of the consensus opinion that trading back for the extra 4th and 7th rounder picks, combined with the 2nd rounder in the Packer's slot, would better enhance what the team can take away from this draft, for it would give them 3 players where they would only get one.    If (that being a big IF) Whitehair is who the Colts were looking at before the trade, then they pulled the trade trigger because they deemed him not being as much value to the team as the three players they would instead come away with.  Alternatively, perhaps they were not even interested in Whitehair (despite the ranking of him by talking head analysts) and they figured they could get who they wanted anyway, later in the round, but in the process also pick up two additional players (via the 4th and 7th rounders they were given to make the swap).   In making the trade, if Whitehair is who they wanted, maybe they also thought that he might still be there and they could get him anyway, but that if he didn't last (which he did not, with him being picked in the slot just before the Colts pick), that they were okay with that because of who else they figured they would get should Whitehair not be available.   I think that with the above explanation, the reason as to how could they pass on him is definitively answered.   One is free to be of the opinion that Whitehair was (will be) worth more than the three players the Colts instead received (T.J. Green, Antonio Morrison, & Austin Blythe), but alas, the powers that be do not agree with your assessment.  Also throw into that equation Le'Raven Clark, whom they may have figured on being able to get in the next round, just like they did, with their thought being that perhaps he will more aptly fill the team's needs in combination with the other three aforementioned players, as compared to Whitehair and one other 4th round player that they may have instead chosen in place of Clark.   Three or 4 years down the road if the three players the Colts instead got all turned out to be non factors, along with Clark also being a non factor, while Whitehair went on to become a top notch, Pro Bowl caliber OG, then today's dissenters can recall this thread and gloat that they were so much smarter than the Colts' regime at the time.  For now, though, dissenting opinions are simply dissenting opinions.  Dissenting opinions that I consider to be far less credible in source, for they are fan opinions from the outside, not from the INSIDE expert circle of knowledge that the Colts rely upon.   There, end of thread.
