Chappell: Odds against a Wayne return

Mike Chappell would love to see Reggie Wayne return but knows the odds aren’t great:

ANSWER: I would put the odds of Reggie returning at less than 50-50. I agree it would be a huge boost to Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III to have a quality receiver. Just not sure that’s going to happen. I don’t believe Reggie wants to break the bank on what will be his final contract, but he’s not going to give a huge discount. I remember asking him about that near the end of the season, whether he might give the Colts a “blue-light special.’’ He said, ‘I don’t shop at Kmart.’’ From talking with Jim Irsay, I get the impression the top two priorities are Robert Mathis and Pierre Garcon. I agree with Mathis, but I am not sold of Garcon. He makes great plays, doesn’t always make the routine ones. One other reason I hope Reggie returns – he’s the best interview in the locker room. Great talker. Genuine.

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
