$40 million, including a $13.5 million dollar signing bonus? Holy schnizel, Batman! That's a lot of bread! But, for Reggie it's well deserved. He hasn't signed the deal yet, but if/when he does it will make him the third highest paid WR in the NFL, behind Marvin Harrison and Randy Moss. Sorry to disappoint our new poster and resident Redskins fan, MrBill, but like I said earlier: Wayne is staying in Colt Land.
The next question is who do the Colts use the franchise tag on? Will they tag Edge again this year? Stay tuned.Update [2006-2-22 19:0:18 by BigBlueShoe]: Len Pasquerelli at ESPN is saying the Colts have until tomorrow to use their franchise tag, and it is unlikely they will use it on Edge do to cap ramifications.
Update [2006-2-22 22:43:20 by BigBlueShoe]: Mike Chappell at the Indianapolis Star posted an article on their website this evening that suggests the Colts are going to let Edge walk in light of the Wayne signing.
I know Bill Polian-speak. This is a not so subtle way of saying Edge is gone. Perhaps it was wishful thinking on my part to feel he'd get re-signed. Now, I'd be really surprised if he does.
