Patriots Hope to Sign Reggie Wayne

The Patriots have brought in Reggie Wayne for a physical. (

With rumors swirling for the last several months, the Patriots have finally decided to bring in former Colts WR Reggie Wayne for a physical in hopes of signing him to a contract.

Wayne was in New England last night, the day after training camp ended and before Brandon Gibson was injured, making his signing a likely planned event for some time. He is taking the physical today.

The Patriots currently have one open roster spot available, which if the Patriots were to sign Wayne, would bring the roster back up to 90 players.

As I have noted before, Reggie Wayne was a natural fit for the Patriots, and could provide another weapon for Tom Brady. With injuries piling up, including Brian Tyms likely headed to IR and Brandon Gibson potentially out for the near future, Wayne makes a perfect addition in a time where the Patriots badly need wide receivers.
