GM Grigson: Colts 'expect greatness'

(Continued)

Veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne is fully onboard.

The 34-year-old is entering his 13th season in the NFL, but he said he still thinks like he did as a rookie.

"They trying to find somebody to replace me," he said. "So I gotta show them what's up. I gotta make that a hard decision for them. So I gotta think like a 20-year-old. I gotta feel like a 20-year-old. The day I stop feeling like that, that's the day I'm gonna put my cleats in gold. You know, I'm gonna hang them up."

The Colts hope that day doesn't come anytime soon.

Wayne is coming off a 1,355-yard season, and he's had at least 1,000 yards in eight of the past nine years. The lone exception — in 2011 — saw him fall just 40 yards short despite playing with three different quarterbacks in the wake of then-starter Peyton Manning's neck surgery.

Compared with that ordeal, learning a new offense this offseason should be a snap.

But Wayne said new coordinator Pep Hamilton is installing a complicated scheme, and players have no room to rest during their off time until training camp begins July 27.

"That's what we've been teaching the last two or three days, the whole mini-camp," Wayne said. "When you leave here, you don't go on vacation. We're a young team. We've got a new offense. This is not the offense where you can take a break. We really gotta stay into it, stay in tune to what's going on, stay in that playbook. Guys are doing great right now, in the right path, but we want to make sure we stay that way."

Wayne plans to gather several offensive players together at the University of Miami — as he did last offseason — to keep the learning and bonding process flowing.
