Don't expect Reggie Wayne to reunite with Peyton Manning in Denver.

The Broncos have "backed off" their apparent initial interest in the free agent receiver, according to Dave Furst, a local ABC sports reporter in Indianapolis.

It had been previously reported that "several teams" were interested in Wayne, the Broncos presumably among them. The list now appears to be shrinking.

The Texans are not interested, according to Houston Chronicle's John McClain, and neither are the Ravens, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. That leaves, according to Furst, the Patriots and Packers.

The Broncos, meanwhile, are content to move forward with Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer, Andre Caldwell, Jordan Norwood, Nathan Palmer, Isaiah Burse, Bennie Fowler, Jordan Taylor, Solomon Patton, David Porter, and Kyle Williams at receiver.

Denver's receivers and their teammates will report for camp on Thursday, July 30.
