Indianapolis mayor to present Reggie Wayne with key to city
INDIANAPOLIS - Former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne is poised to receive the key to the city.
Indiana Black Expo announced Tuesday that Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard will present Wayne with the key during Indiana University's Pacers Sports and Entertainment luncheon on July 17.
The Colts parted ways with Wayne in March, making him an unrestricted free agent. He is considered one of the greatest receivers in the franchise's history. The 36-year-old from New Orleans played for the Colts for 14 years since he was drafted during the first round in 2001.
Ballard says Wayne deserves the honor because he has given back to the Indianapolis community. The mayor calls Wayne a role model.
