Is Reggie Wayne an option for the Chargers?

Reggie Wayne, the 7th all time in Career Receptions, has been connected to the San Diego Chargers. Could the team end up signing him to bolster their group of wide receivers?

While discussing Wide Receiver Reggie Wayne on the program "ESPN Insiders" today, they talked about of the few possible destinations for Wayne being the New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers. ESPN Reporter Ed Werder said this about the Chargers being linked to Reggie Wayne:

"The Chargers are interesting because Tom Telesco the GM there was with the Colts. He's known to consider Wayne a Hall of Fame caliber player and of course Antonio Gates is going to miss the first 4 games of the season, Wayne might be able to help them early."

Keenan Allen, Malcom Floyd and Stevie Johnson are the projected starters for the Chargers in Week 1 and even with Antonio Gates missing the first four games it would be hard to find Reggie Wayne snaps without running a lot of four Wide Receiver sets. Wayne would bring leadership, experience, familiarity for Tom Telesco and over 1,000 total receptions to the Chargers. At 36 years old, how much does Reggie Wayne have left in the tank and would it be worth it for the Chargers to take a flyer on him?
