Crazy Colts Fan - Jim Irsay Messing With Fans or Opposing Coaches with 'The Icelander?'
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is teasing fans of his team and the opposition. On Monday he tweeted--because he likes to do that you know--that the team may be looking to sign a man mountain he referred to as 'The Icelander.'
That's the huge dude in the picture in case you are wondering.
Hafthor Bjornsson is the man-mountain's name and for now at least he is a Strongman competitor. You know--that competition where guys leg press a ton of kids (literally 2000 pounds of them I believe), lift VW bugs for repetition and drag airliners, buses, and/or trains because they can (among other totally awesome things).
From the looks of him he's pretty good at it too. Standing 6'9" and weighing in at around 419 pounds (yes, that is a 4) he can bench press over 500 pounds, squat close to 800, and dead lift almost 900 pounds.
He's been Iceland's strongest man for the last couple of years, and last year came in third at the World's Strongest Man competition.
So is anyone imagining him tossing around those tiny little offensive linemen around other than me?....

Indianapolis Colts The Indianapolis Colts are a young, talented team, but we can't understate how much the Colts overachieved last season. What's more, the man that lead that overachieving bunch is now the head coach in Arizona. This season will be largely determined by the success, or struggles, of second year quarterback Andrew Luck. With success, the Colts can likely...
The Indianapolis Colts signed a lot of free agents and added 7 more rookies in the draft. Let's see how I think their roster will look now. Everything is not in order.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano referred to RB Vick Ballard as the “lead guy” in their backfield this season.
“It’s always nice to have a couple guys, a change of pace guy,” said Pagano, via ESPN.com. “But certainly at the end of the year with Donnie hurt and the way Vick came on and the way he was running, he was getting the lion’s share of the snaps. At this point, yeah,...
As a running back in the National Football League, Vick Ballard is nothing extraordinary; he was selected in the 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts and he even tripped on his first 40-yard dash attempt at the NFL combine; he was clocked at 4.65 on his second attempt. In his rookie season, he posted a mark of only 3.9 yards-per-carry (which you can see in the...
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said running back Vick Ballard was the "lead guy" in the backfield, according to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.Fantasy Spin:With Brown hurting, Ballard rushed for 814 yards and two rushing touchdowns and caught 17 balls for 152 yards last season. We expect that if Brown is healthy he'll get a good portion of the workload, but for now Ballard is the No. 1 option.
Former Indianapolis Colts pass rushing monster Dwight Freeney is amazingly still unemployed.

The post Dwight Freeney to visit San Diego Chargers after Melvin Ingram injury appeared first on Players View.
Dwight Freeney is still without an NFL home and if you ask his parents, they have differing views on where he should play next. Dwight Freeney's father, Hugh, has said that he would prefer his son to play this season with the New England Patriots. Freeney has visited with the Patriots earlier in the offseason, but with Freeney's main concern being money, it's unlikely...
RB/KR Deji Karim @kingkarim36 has signed with the Houston #Texans…congrats to Deji, well deserved!
— Jason Bernstein (@JB_XAM) May 14, 2013
The Houston Texans have signed free agent running back Deji Karim to a deal. Karim was invited to rookie mini camp this past weekend on a tryout basis that resulted in an offer being made. He is 5-8 and 209 lbs. and in his 4th season...
Dwight Freeney’s father Hugh was on SiriusXM NFL Radio and said his son would love to play for the New York Giants, but “they’re broke.”
Well the Giants could afford to pay Freeney, but he would have to accept a contract that’s worth the veteran minimum and I don’t think he’s going to do that.
If the Giants were going to sign Freeney, they should have just kept Osi...
Hot News for DE Dwight Freeney
Freeney visited the Patriots about two months ago now. He still hasn't signed with a team.
He recently visited with the Chargers as he continues to make his rounds around the NFL.
We've thought all along that his high price tag was what was keeping him from joining with the Patriots. However, it appears that there might be something else holding him back according to his...
Dwight Freeney impressed the San Diego Chargers during his visit that they’re willing to change their defensive scheme for him. While I don’t think the Chargers would completely change their scheme for the aging vet, I do think it makes it more likely he’ll have a home soon.
First-year San Diego Chargers coach Mike McCoy seemed impressed with free-agent defensive end Dwight...
