You have to love Jim Irsay.
There are many NFL owners, but only one who sends out tweets like this:
SERIOUS TRADE WINDS Swirling! We're talking given up high pick for SERIOUS Vet/Starter!.. these deals often crumble n don't reach completionâ Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) August 23, 2012
9 times out of 10 these deals fizzle out like a faulty Roman Candle;any other info at this time is proprietary,must move behind the curtain!â Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) August 23, 2012
The Colts have so many holes on their roster, it's hard to speculate one area of need.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace has deep ties to offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is open to a change of scenery and would certainly represent an upgrade over Donald Brown.
Then again, who knows? We suggest Colts fans keep refreshing Irsay's Twitter page. You never know when another hint will come buried deep within a Don Henley lyric.
UPDATE II: In the wee hours of the night, Irsay wrote on Twitter, "It's standing still...at 1am...shut it down...as Paul Simon says..'There's only so much you can do..go on and get some rest...' "
