The Colts pulled off a trade on Wednesday afternoon that rocked the NFL world, but don’t say Jim Irsay didn’t warn you. Colts CEO and owner Jim Irsay sent out a series of tweets before the trade was announced, promising “shock and awe,” and a “MONSTER TRADE” that was “the tidal wave of deal making.” Irsay delivered on his hype, and an hour later the news broke: The Cleveland Browns had traded Trent Richardson to Indianapolis for a first-round pick. Check out Irsay unable to suppress his excitement for their newest acquisition in the tweets below. OMG...the Earth is SHAKING!!!!!
