Somebody get on the horn to Reggie Wayne’s family and closest friends. Get them to town in time for the Oct. 21 home game against Cleveland, because a ceremony is going to break out.
At least one should.
Following Wayne’s performance on Sunday, a 13-grab, career-best 212-yard work of art, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay should have grabbed a microphone, motioned Wayne to midfield, told fans to remain in their seats and verbally welcomed the 12th-year receiver to the team’s Ring of Honor.
Yeah. Just like that. Even though there’s a better chance of Irsay scrapping his Twitter account or misplacing Stephen Stills’ phone number than breaking the longstanding policy of waiting until a player is retired, no one present for Sunday’s 30-27 victory over Green Bay would argue the move.
That includes Packers fans.
