The Indianapolis Colts today announced the end of an era, as the team officially said that they will not re-sign longtime wide receiver Reggie Wayne. We took a look back at his career and some of the most memorable moments, and many others are doing the same.
On twitter and instagram today, a number of Colts players and former Colts are expressing their appreciation for Reggie Wayne, and we've compiled a number of them here.
