Professional career

Reggie Wayne was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the 30th selection in the 2001 NFL Draft, and was taken to eventually complement the Colts' other star receiver, Marvin Harrison.

In Wayne's first year, he caught only 27 passes for 345 yards with no touchdowns. His yards doubled the next year as he caught 49 passes for 716 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Wayne became the full time starter for the Colts during the 2003 season, and he caught 68 balls for 838 yards and 7 touchdowns. The next season, Wayne caught 77 passes for 1,210 yards and 12 touchdowns during a season in which Colts quarterback Peyton Manning set a then-record by throwing for 49 touchdowns. During the playoffs, Wayne was named the "Wild Card Weekend Offensive Player of the Week" after the Colts beat the Broncos. In 2005 Wayne continued to increase his yearly reception total with 83.

In 2006, Wayne signed a 6-year, $39.5 million contract, and went on to catch 86 balls for a then career high 1,310 yards and 9 touchdowns. As a result, Wayne was selected to his first Pro Bowl. Wayne helped the Colts defeat the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI with a 53-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter.

In 2007, Wayne responded to a rash of injuries on the team, including Harrison and tight end Dallas Clark, and set career highs in receptions (104), and yards (1510). He led the league in receiving yards and was selected to go to the Pro Bowl for the second consecutive year.

In 2008, Wayne once again posted another Pro Bowl season with 82 catches for 1145 yards and six touchdowns, including a 65-yard score in the opening drive against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
