The Ravens aren't expected to pursue veteran forrmer Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne, according to NFL sources.

Wayne, 36, has expressed interest in playing a 15th and final NFL season.

The six-time Pro Bowl selection wasn't retained by the Colts this offseason after catching 1,070 career passes for 14,345 yards and 82 touchdowns since being drafted in the first round in 2001

Wayne caught 64 passes for 779 yards and two touchdowns last season and had offseason triceps surgery. He also dealt with an elbow injury.

Though a report Monday morning linked the Ravens and Wayne, the two aren't a strong fit due to the receiver's age and the presence of five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Steve Smith, a fellow 36-year-old.

The Ravens are upbeat about their young wide receivers and want to see them compete in training camp.

They drafted Breshad Perriman in the first round and are intrigued by his combination of size (6 feet 2, 212 pounds) and speed (4.22 in the 40-yard dash). The Ravens also bring back Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown and Michael Campanaro.

Campanaro has recovered from a slightly torn quadriceps suffered during offseason practices and is expected to be ready for training camp.
