08:04 AM ET 07.13 | Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne and rookie quarterback Andrew Luck are making good on a promise to get together for some pitch-and-catch. [Wayne], the 12th-year veteran, University of Miami graduate and South Florida resident, promised something else: "Believe me, (Luck) is going to make more trips to me than I am to him," Wayne said during minicamp last month. Here's proof: Colts wide receiver Donnie Avery tweeted a photo from the UM weight room today of five sweat-soaked athletes with the caption "Another good day at the University of Miami." Alongside an unidentified player stood Colts teammates ... Wayne, Luck, Avery and Griff Whalen, the latter a Colts undrafted rookie and Luck's former Stanford wide receiver teammate.

Hope they all benefit from this. I'll bet Wayne enjoys telling the QB what to do for a change.

They don't have work out gear at the Dolts facility ? Or Did Irsay install coin slots on the equipment so the players have to pay to work out?

They don't have Miami and all its obvious charms at the Dolt's facility. They have Indianapolis.

He's trying to establish himself as higher on the food chain than the other guys Luck could throw to. But why would Wayne, a guy who's been in the NFL for a while and has the money to travel easily, brag to the media about making his new quarterback cross the country just to practice together?

If I were Luck, I'd just train with the guys who actually want to be there. Because Wayne doesn't have much room to be that arrogant. It's not like he did anything to make Collins or Painter look better. He's **** without Manning.

Luck's a rookie Wayne's an all pro. Seems to me like all is as it should be.

Right. Has he even been named the starter yet, officially?

Did Luck Sign his Contract?

What time of the year doesn't even matter.

If I were Luck, I'd want to train with the best. Wayne is that and one of the best route runners in the business, and year after year proved he can improvise when coverage is tight. Luck needs to be in lock step with Wayne what ever it takes.

Reggie has been an effective team leader since Harrison left. And anyway, temps in Indy are hotter than Miami this year.
