According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, former Colts wide receivers Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks are generating little interest around the NFL so far.

The Indianapolis Colts made quite a splash in free agency by landing highly sought after veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson just two days after he was released.  Two former Colts veteran receivers aren't receiving the same treatment from other teams, however.

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, Hakeem Nicks has been one of a number of receivers who has generated "little to no interest" so far during the free agency period, while the market for Reggie Wayne has similarly been "MIA throughout the first seven days of free agency."

It doesn't really come as much of a surprise that there is currently little interest for either player, though as the offseason moves on it's more likely that one or both of the players could receive some attention from teams.  They were never going to be near the first wave of free agency, though, and so as we're just one week into the free agency period it's no surprise to see neither generating much interest.

Wayne, a borderline Hall of Famer who is one of the greatest Colts of all-time, had a down year in 2014 as he played much of the season with a torn triceps, catching 64 passes for 779 yards and two scores on the year.  The team announced that they would not be re-signing the fan favorite, though he might listen to offers from contenders.

Nicks signed with the Colts last offseason on a "prove it," and, well, he didn't really prove it.  For much of the season he was completely ineffective and had no timing with Andrew Luck, though he noticeably improved as the season went on.  Playing in all 16 games and starting six, Nicks caught 38 passes for 405 yards and four scores.
