Reggie Wayne: Peyton Manning And Tom Brady 'Would Be Hell Of A Battle' In AFC East

Reggie Wayne is one free agent with a vested interested in paying close attention to the free agent market for quarterbacks. That’s because it is likely he will know his new home when his former Colts teammate Peyton Manning selects his own destination. The 18 to 88 duo will forever live in Colts infamy, but it also might find a second home somewhere like Miami, where Reggie Wayne said in a recent radio interview would be a good home for Manning.

“I think it’d be a good fit for him,” said Wayne. "He always had a crib in South Florida. It’s less moving that he has to do. He’s already familiar with the city. I’m sure that the Dolphins fans would love to have him here. I think it’s a great fit for him. I’m no agent of his, I’m just a lonely ex-teammate. I really feel like whoever gets Peyton Manning would definitely have a gem. He’s one of the best if not the best quarterback in the league ever, in history. And in a Dolphin uniform? I can see that happening. I really can.

“I really think he’d enjoy it. I really think that the Dolphin organization would benefit from it, and it would be a hell of a battle in the AFC East, with the rest of those teams, and especially with a Tom Brady in there. So I can definitely see that in the works.”

Wayne certainly has to hope he can make it down there as well. The Dolphins have a solid young core at wideout, so it would be interesting how Wayne would fit in with Brandon Marshall and company given that he also doesn’t play special teams. But you can expected the Fins to do whatever it takes to bring in Manning.
