Jim Irsay tweeted Thursday night that the Indianapolis Colts were working on a big deal for a "SERIOUS Vet/starter." Irsay pumped up the possible acquisition and said the Colts would give up a high pick and cash in the deal. With that information, there were just two logical options as trade targets: Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace and Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew.
Applying logic to a Jim Irsay tweet can be hazardous.
Phil Richards of The Indianapolis Star, meanwhile, reports that the Colts are targeting a cornerback. Miami Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis could be an option. Davis makes some sense from both the Colts' and Dolphins' perspectives. He's a talented player who could use a fresh start somewhere. Richards reports the talks are in a holding pattern, so there might not be any more news for a while.
Unless, of course, Irsay makes up something.
