Today Jim Irsay took to twitter to drop massive hints.
The first one was(pardon the spelling I am typing these verbatim) “ColtsFans, we already past the cap cash wise/ we’re workin on a deal, 1 we’ve been working for 5 days/ we’re very close to makin it work.”
Then he followed that up with “ColtsFans Hint————-It’s a Wide Receiver!!!!”
If you remember last year Irsay was dropping similar hints before the acquisition of Vontae Davis via trade. Now the only WR still on the market who would be worth being this mysterious about would be Victor Cruz. Everyone else worth being this secretive about is already signed and no one is on the trading block that I am aware of. I am sure some moves have to be made before anything can be done because as Irsay said the team is over the cap.
But my best guess and the best guess of a lot of people is that either by large offer sheet that the Giants can’t match or by a “Welker to New England”esque trade we may see Victor Cruz to Indianapolis within the next few days.
Thoughts: If this is the case and they get him for anything less per year than what Jennings is getting then Minnesota really dropped the ball here. If this is in fact the case the only thing Indianapoilis would need really is a running game because Wayne and Cruz will make for some fireworks in Indy to go with the two young Tight Ends the Colts currently employ in Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen.
