Four teams reportedly are showing interest in former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne, who wants to play one more NFL season.

Wayne, who was in Indianapolis on Friday to receive a key to the city, told reporters he plans on playing a 15th season in 2015 and that some teams have been calling him.

Dave Furst of RTV6 in Indianapolis reported that the Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans, New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers are on the list of teams in touch with Wayne, who made the Pro Bowl six times.

Furst also said on Twitter that the Denver Broncos, who have Wayne’s longtime Colts teammate Peyton Manning, “have backed off.”

The Colts parted ways with Wayne in March after 14 seasons, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Wayne was the Colts’ franchise leader in regular-season games played (211) and wins (143) and ranked second in receptions (1,070), receiving yards (14,345), receiving touchdowns (80), 100-yard games (43) and consecutive games with a reception (134). He ranks seventh in NFL history in career receptions and eighth in receiving yards.

Wayne caught 64 passes for 779 yards and two touchdowns with the Colts last season.

After the season, Wayne underwent surgery to repair a torn triceps and the 36-year-old was deciding then whether to play in 2015.
