Edgerrin James to be added to Colts ring of honor

Edgerrin James will “always be a Colt”. In week three of this upcoming season, the former University of Miami running back will be enshrined in Colt history forever.

The Colts announced today that James, the fourth overall pick in the 1999 NFL draft, will join the Ring of Honor at a celebration at the Week 3 game against the Jaguars on September 23.

“It is a tremendous honor,” James said in a statement released by the team. “It’s one of those things that you set out to do and hope to have a career where you can leave a lasting imprint. For me, it’s super important because a lot of my young kids didn’t get a chance to see me play. Now, at least they’ll know their daddy could play a little bit. . . . No matter where I go or what I do, I’m always a Colt.”

Congrats to him. Someone who has always conducted himself with professionalism on and off the field.

Reggie Wayne re-signs with Colts

Well at least one Colt will not be coming to Miami. Reggie Wayne made it official tonight that he’s going back to Indy, per Adam Schefter

Plenty of speculation among dolphin fans was that if Reggie Wayne could land in Miami that would possibly land them Peyton Manning. And the talk surrounding that became even more furious when the Dolphins traded Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears. Now with the world still waiting on Peyton Manning and no number one receiver in place, call Dolfans can do right now is hold their breath and wait to see what happens next. Stay tuned.

Reggie Wayne see’s Miami as a reunion destination for him and Manning

Let the madness start. Not since the summer of 2010 when Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were free agents has there been such a buzz surrounding free agency. Ok and when Reggie White was available. But this is a different day and age. It’s social media, 24 hr updates and everyone and their momma blogging and “reporting” about the destinations of several impending free agents.

Reggie Wayne spoke to Michael Irvin on his radio show and let it be known where he would like to land and where he hopes Peyton Manning will continue his career.

“You don’t think Manning wants to prove people wrong,” Wayne told Irvin. “You don’t think he wants to go out there and show everyone he’s back, and what he can do. This dude is going to be ready. Trust me, he’s going to be more than ready. And he’s not going to have a problem adjusting to nobodies scheme, and nobodies roster. He’s going to fit in just like he’s been there.”

“I can see it, and I’m definitely not opposed to it. He’s a great worker. I consider myself a great worker, and when you put great workers together good things happen. Me being in his trail to Miami, I would definitely love it! I’m totally available. I’m ready for anything that comes! I definitely see that in the mix. My phone is working. It’s definitely working. I’ve paid my bills..so whenever that phone rings, trust me, I’ll answer,”

Personally I’m cautiously optimistic about the possibilities of a Manning-Wayne reunion here in Miami. Dolphin fans would love it, but I’m not going to get my hopes up just yet because this franchise and the current administration could mess up a wet dream. Right now, I see the chances at 40 percent of landing both of them.

The End of an Era in Indianapolis

I’ve always said that I love when a player stays with the same team for the duration of their career. It was hard to see Jordan, Rice, Montana, (Emmitt) Smith, Farve and others bounce around to team after team. There are some athletes that you think it could never happen to. Even in today’s salary cap- free agency world or sports, I still thought that some were untouchable. With the Colts set to officially release Peyton Manning today with a noon press conference, that thought process in my mind just got a little more smaller.

14 years in the same uniform. A four time league MVP. A Super Bowl ring (almost two). A new stadium. A future Hall of Famer. And now, a free agent. The list of accolades past, present and future are long for Manning, and I don’t doubt that he will add to it at his new home. Where and when he will move we won’t know until Manning and the teams interested in him o a thorough investigation into his health and his fit into that team.

If you thought Tim Tebow and Jeremy Lin were overkill in the media, sit back and watch this circus over the next few weeks.

Finally, I thought that this video of the Manning and colts owner Jim Irsay arriving together at the airport after a plane ride from Florida was surreal and almost creepy. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a team owner and a soon to be former player hang out like this roughly 12 hours before that player is about to be released from the team.

Dolphins Should Look at Caldwell

Should Dolphin owner Stephen Ross look into the possibility of hiring recently fired coach Jim Caldwell? Why or why not?

He’s a proven coach in this league. He’s worked with arguably one of the greatest qb’s in history. His team (mainly because of Manning) were playoff contenders every year he was at the helm. Sure he’s emotionless and stoic, but games aren’t won by the fist pumps and smiles. It’s won on the field. And not to mention he is credited by Manning with helping with his developement and helping him earn those 4 MVP awards.

On the other hand, he is just 26-22 in 3 seasons. He went 2-14 this year with a bunch of band aids at quarterback. And then there is the controversial sitting of players in 2010.

I definitely think he is worthy of an interview. See what his offensive philosophy is. Get in his mind. But then again, this is Stephen Ross and Jeff Ireland I’m leaving this decision up too.
