INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Reggie Wayne took less money to stay in Indianapolis because he wanted to turn things around right away.
After making good on his promise, Wayne has another vision for the Colts: Winning another Super Bowl title.
If it seems implausible, few at the beginning of the season thought the Colts (11-5) would be playing at Baltimore (10-6) in the playoffs this weekend.
But playing in a new offense, with a rookie quarterback, surrounded by a mostly untested supporting cast and motivated by his head coach's battle with leukemia, all the 34-year-old receiver did was produce the second-best numbers of his career - 106 receptions and 1,355 yards - and get these Colts back to the postseason for the 10th time in 11 years.
