Try to contain your amazement. Jim Irsay is at it again. The owner of the Indianapolis Colts has caused a spotlight of speculation to scan all corners of the NFL from his own Twitter trade chatter.
There were two initial logical trade targets: Steelers star wide receiver Mike Wallace and Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who led the league in rushing in 2011.
Nevertheless, both of them weren’t in the trade talks, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com. His report also ruled out a pair of cornerbacks in Mike Jenkins of the Cowboys and Cary Williams from the Ravens.
For those who might be excited about the prospects of Patriots star receiver Wes Welker potentially taking his talents to Indianapolis, you may not want to pay attention to Mike Florio’s piece at ProFootballTalk.com.
So is Irsay just blowing smoke? Is this all just an effort to create attention or is there an actual trade on the horizon?
While there’s no reason to believe Irsay doesn’t like the attention...
