Pats Let Reggie Wayne Keep Signing Bonus After He Quit


You may not remember, but future Hall of Famer Reggie Wayne was once a member of the New England Patriots. However, it was only for 11 days back in 2015.

When Wayne decided to walk away, no one was quite sure what happened to the $450,000 signing bonus, but he has finally cleared the air.

“They told me to keep it,” Wayne said. “If they would have said ‘We want it back,’ I would have given it back. You find $1,000, and they say you can keep it, put it in your damn wallet.”

Wayne is now an analyst for the NFL Network.
