08:05 AM ET 08.24 | Jim Irsay, who knows how to cause a stir on Twitter, was at it again. It all started, then built, with [Irsay's tweets, specifically: "SERIOUS TRADE WINDS Swirling! We're talking given up high pick for SERIOUS Vet/Starter!.. these deals often crumble n don't reach completion" Then: "Colts Fans..Your GM Mr Grigson isn't afraid to roll the dice n aggressively improve YOUR Indianapolis Colts..n my check book stands ready!" Then: "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!" Speculation has run to Pittsburgh wide receiver Mike Wallace and Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew. ... A reliable source told me the Colts target is a cornerback.

Patience Jimmy boy, patience. Put your checkbook away. Your team was a lot more than just a QB and CB away from being a playoff contender last year.

Still, Andrew Luck has created a lot of buzz. And, if the team needs a lot of players, why not pick up one or two now? Draft picks are nice, but it's still a crap shoot. They're not going to get everything they need between the Superbowl and the start of the 2013 season, so they should start building early.

Last season they played Suck for Luck. They'd look pretty stupid if this year they played Suck All Around Luck.

53-year-old men shouldn't Tweet any more than 53-year-old women should wear Ed Hardy bikinis.

Out of no where he trades Andrew Luck for Tim Tebow.

now that would be funny....AND ..the Jets would finally get a QB!!!!!

Wonder if Jags will trade MJD after their impotent effort last night against the Ravens.

August 24, 2012  08:54 AM ET

With Pagano now the head coach, I would imagine that the focus would be on the defense. I think that's the right approach as well.

I can't think of any shutdown corners that are on the market at the moment, unless some idiot is willing to go all Hershel Walker to get him... Oh wait.

Big name CB's are a crapshoot. Ask the Eagles about that.

What he needs to do is go out and buy a Vintage Corvette and Drive Away and not look back!!!

Keep your twitter shut!

August 24, 2012  10:34 AM ET

i cant see them trying to get a receiver, they already have Wayne and a few other potential #3's. But MJD would be huge for luck an Indy. There's defense is a mess, dont think one player is gonna matter much there.
