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.
