Reggie Wayne Hopes to Have Another 1,000-Yard Season With Indianapolis Colts

After the Indianapolis Colts replaced Peyton Manning with Andrew Luck at quarterback, nobody knew what to expect from Reggie Wayne during the 2012 season as many feared his production would go down a bit. Instead, Wayne had another impressive season for the Colts as he caught 106 passes for 1,355 yards to go along with five touchdowns.

Once again, Wayne has his goals set high for the 2013 season by hoping to record another 1,000-yard season–which may not seem difficult for a player as talented as the Colts wideout. However, when taking into consideration that only 12 players that are 35 years of age or older have accomplished the milestone, it may not seem as easy as it seems.

Then again, this is Reggie Wayne we’re talking about–so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he made it happen.

As long as he manages to stay healthy, there’s no reason why Wayne shouldn’t be able to reach his goal considering he’s broken the 1,000-yard mark in eight of the last nine seasons with the Colts. Plus, if there’s anything to take away from the 2012 season when it comes to the Colts, it would be Wayne looked just as good with Luck under center as he did with Manning–which was a huge sign of relief for the organization.

Wayne’s been one of the league’s top wide receivers over the last couple of seasons and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be able to obtain his goal during the 2013 season.
