Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne is contemplating retirement, according to an interview he gave with local Indianapolis media outlets.
“Thirty-six, man. Kids growing up,” Wayne explained to Mike Chappell of RTV6 in Indianapolis. “It’s time for family decisions.”
Wayne talked about wanting to spend more time with his three children, including his oldest, his 11-year old son who is playing football.
“It’s real, man,” Wayne said. “It’s tough, it really is. You have to decide if you want to make that sacrifice again. A lot goes into it.”
Wayne returned from a torn ACL he suffered in 2013, but may not be able to continue playing as a full-time starter. Wayne has mentioned in the past that he wants to be a Colt for life and might be willing to take a pay cut from his $6 million contract over the last three years.
“I know what I’m not going to do is go somewhere else and play for one year, two years. Absolutely not. Nobody else. I don’t have time to be dipping and dabbing, one year here, maybe one year somewhere else.”
Reggie Wayne is not under contract for the 2015 season.
