It’s Saturday, and Colts owner Jim Irsay for the third straight day is upstaging preseason action by tweeting about a possible trade.
This time, however, Irsay is drawing attention from his own team’s game.
The Colts currently are facing the Redskins at FedEx Field in a matchup of the first two picks in the 2012 draft. Minutes before kickoff, Irsay tweeted his latest update about rumors that he has been fueling.
“[T]rade winds still howlin’…but only time will tell if they were ghostly vapors or a flesh n blood upgrade!!!!!!!” Irsay said.
We still don’t see the benefit of raising fan expectations for something that may never happen, especially since the other team involved in this (if, you know, there even is another team) may want something more in order to give Irsay the privilege of delivering on a potentially hollow promise.
Either way, we’ll continue to keep our eyes peeled and ears perked. It’s safe to assume that Irsay will have something more to say when the Sunday night game between the Panthers and Jets kicks off tomorrow night on NBC.
