Perhaps no position for the Colts could see more turnover after the season than wideout, where Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon and Anthony Gonzalez all have expiring contracts. It is a fait accompli that Gonzalez won't be back, as he has been a healthy scratch a number of times this season and has fallen out of favor with the front office. Garcon, the club's most consistent offensive weapon this season, has made a strong case for being re-signed. The biggest question could be what to do with Wayne, who we hear has been sending out the vibe to local media that his time with the club soon could be over. Although Wayne has struggled without QB Peyton Manning this season, we hear that is as much about QB Curtis Painter's inability to see the whole field and locking on to Garcon, with whom he feels most comfortable. If Manning is back next season, word is he will make a strong push for Wayne being re-signed.
