Yesterday, Hall of Fame wide receiver, Michael Irvin was hosting his daily radio show on 560 WQAM Sports Radio in Miami. As the NFL world turned its eyes, once again, on Indianapolis to watch the Peyton Manning press conference, Irvin welcomed soon-to-be free agent wide receiver, and former Manning teammate, Reggie Wayne to the show.

Obviously, the talk was focused on Manning, and the possibility that Manning, and Wayne, could make the move from Indianapolis to Miami this offseason. After the two talked about Manning being released, and what it was like in Indy, Irvin steered the conversation to the idea of the two coming to Miami.

After Irvin asked for his thoughts on Peyton coming to Miami, Wayne replied:

"You know, I think it would be a good fit for him. He already has, as they say, a crib here in South Florida. It's less, moving he has to do. He's already familiar with the city. I'm sure that the Dolphins fans would love to have him here. I think it's a great fit for him.

"I'm no agent of his. You know, I'm just an old, lowly teammate of his - ex-teammate. I really feel like whoever gets Peyton Manning, will definitely have a gem. He's one of the best, if not the best quarterback in this league, ever, in history. And, in a Dolphins uniform, I can see that happening. I really can.

"I really think he [would] enjoy it. I really think the Dolphins organization would benefit from it. And, it would be a hell of a battle...in the AFC East, with those other teams in there - especially with a Tom Brady. I can definitely see it in the works."

Irvin then asks, if the Dolphins were able to sign Manning, what are the odds that Wayne, who played college football for the University of Miami, would join his "ex-teammate" in Miami.

Wayne replied, "I mean, I could see it. And, I'm definitely not opposed to it. He's a great worker, and I consider myself a great worked, and when you put great workers together, good things happen.

"So, me being in his trail, on to Miami, I would love it. I would definitely love it. I am totally available. My phone is working. Make sure you put that out there. My phone is working. I paid my bills ahead of time, just so we would have no problems. So, I am ready for anything that comes right now. So, I can definitely see that in the mix, also."

And, that's the calmest Wayne was during the interview. As Irvin continued the conversation along the lines of Manning and Wayne both coming to Miami, Wayne got more and more excited about the possibility.

Make sure you listen to Michael Irvin's interview of Reggie Wayne to hear move about Wayne and Manning in Miami, as well as Wayne loving the idea of Manning, Wayne, and Brandon Marshall all on one team.
