with WR Marvin Harrison's exodus, Colts WR Reggie Wayne became the only No. 1. Or, in Wayne's words, "I am the Marv.''
Over the past five seasons, the 2001 first-round draft pick has established himself as one of the league's elite receivers. His 6,230 yards rank first among receivers while his 432 receptions rank fourth. He and Green Bay's Donald Driver are the only players heading into 2009 with five consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.
Nothing Wayne has achieved has surprised team president Bill Polian. He points to Wayne's work ethic; Wayne spends much of his offseason laboring with other NFL players at the University of Miami. He also points to Wayne's consummate skills.
"He can do everything you want a wide receiver to do -- run, catch, block, run after the catch, get open, get deep,'' Polian said. "He's got incredible hands.''
