During the playoffs, Wayne was named the "Wild Card Weekend Offensive Player of the Week" after the Colts beat the Broncos. In 2005 Wayne continued to increase his yearly reception total with 83.

In 2006, Wayne signed a 6-year, $39.5 million contract.[3] He went on to catch 86 balls for a then career high 1,310 yards and 9 touchdowns. As a result, Wayne was selected to his first Pro Bowl.

In 2007, Wayne responded to a rash of injuries on the team, including Harrison and tight end Dallas Clark, and set career highs in receptions (104), and yards (1510). He led the league in receiving yards and was selected to go to the Pro Bowl for the second consecutive year.

In 2008, Wayne once again posted another Pro Bowl season with 82 catches for 1145 yards and six touchdowns, including a 65-yard score in the opening drive against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In 2009, Wayne caught the winning touchdown pass against the New England Patriots in what is now know as the "4th and 2" game. Wayne was also selected as a starter for the Pro Bowl, but couldn't play due to the Colts playing in the Super Bowl.

In 2010, Wayne was second in the NFL receptions with 111, and third in receiving yards with 1,355. During a season where the Colts heavily relied on Peyton Manning to win games, Wayne again cemented himself as one of the top receivers in the NFL. Wayne was also selected as a starter the Pro Bowl.
