NFL trade rumors: Indianapolis Colts say they are 'standing pat'

After losing number one wide receiver Reggie Wayne for the remainder of the season, many figured the Indianapolis Colts would use the NFL’s trade deadline to secure themselves a replacement.

That apparently won’t be the case as Colts head coach Chuck Pagano says the team is ‘standing pat’ in regards to a move.

Per National Football Post:

“We’re standing pat,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano told Indianapolis reporters.

Of course, the Colts do have a handful of internal options they could turn to to ‘replace’ Wayne, including either LaVon Brazill or Griff Whalen. Both T.Y. Hilton and Darius Heyward-Bey are expected to take over the starting duties now with Wayne on the injured reserve.

A handful of other teams are said to be in the market for a new wideout, so the Colts dropping out creates a little less leverage for those teams trying to squeeze out as much value as they can.
