Irsay says Colts “still in the hunt” for receiver “and others”

Colts owner Jim Irsay took to Twitter on Saturday to declare that his team has been working on a deal for five days, and that the target is a receiver.

So we’re now keeping an eye on Irsay’s Twitter page for any hints.  Or clue.  Or song lyrics.

We’re still n the hunt for WR and others,” Irsay said moments ago.  “It’s never DONE until it’s DONE!  We ride the roller coaster, just like u guys! Nerve racking stuff!”

And then he added this:  “We are still in fight for WR an others. . . . we’ve landed everyone we’ve targeted . . . my gut feeling— we’re not through . . . it’s hour to hour — EXCITING.”

It’s not clear whether the move to acquire a receiver would come via free agency or a trade.  And there’s no guarantee it will happen.  But it’s safe to say we’ll be hearing more from Irsay, at some point.

    Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson are still on the market.

    He is so right … when I am building my fantasy football roster, it is so exciting.

    Have to really enjoy how open Irsay is … unless you like a stick in the mud, I can see the lure.

    As a Colts fan, not much of us are gonna get any sleep is a deal is almost done.

    I wish he would tweet about how many cups of coffee he drinks a day, that would actually give us some telling information for a change.

    This is annoying. Announce the Ramses Barden signing already…

  6. fuglyflorio says: Mar 17, 2013 4:56 PM

    I hope in all his hunting he finds some class too.

    This is funny the dude has egg on his face

    He thought he had a WR in the bag on Saturday but the deal went sour after his Tweet

    These guys need to learn to shut it as yogi said IAOUIO

    Well, now we know how things turned out for Jethro from The Beverly Hillbillys. After Jed died and he inherited all that oil money.

    he is a pretty cool owner even though his dad moved from bmore

  10. packerbackernj says: Mar 17, 2013 5:13 PM

    He better not tickle our snutz and then end up trading for someone like Malcom Floyd.

    Sounds like their making a push for Jeremy Maclin. Bringing in Benn from TB makes him expendable.

  12. barneyrumble says: Mar 17, 2013 5:23 PM

    My guess, they are trying to trade for Victor Cruz and bring the salsa to Lucas Oil Stadium. It’s not an overly strong draft class and giving up a high first for a proven young receiver would work for me. Curious as to why they aren’t making a play for Elvis to stout up the 3-4 D.

    They’re “targeting a receiver”. Don’t let your noodle armed quarterback make the pitch Irs. A Lame Duck From Luck.

    Lesson 1 kids: don’t drink and tweet

  15. retaeyssup says: Mar 17, 2013 5:47 PM

    I cheer for the Colts, but Irsay makes it very hard. Best owners do not try to become the face of a franchise by being a douche through social media.

  16. rajbais says: Mar 17, 2013 5:48 PM

    What’s dumber, the fact that Irsay is Tweeting or the thinking that they need a WR when they already have Reggie Wayne and TY Hilton???

    Get defensive impact players and offensive linemen!!!

  17. dolphins4 says: Mar 17, 2013 5:57 PM

    Maybe they’re trading for Dez Bryant.

  18. andymc58 says: Mar 17, 2013 5:59 PM

    Who can forget the classic hit “We’re still n the hunt for WR and others”?

  19. EJ says: Mar 17, 2013 6:00 PM

    Victor Cruz to Indianapolis.

  20. xlichamps says: Mar 17, 2013 6:38 PM

    A guy with the name “thegreatgabbert” badmouthing Andrew Luck. That’s rich. lol

  21. zimaman says: Mar 17, 2013 6:42 PM

    I can’t believe how fickle all you Colts fans are jumping on here thumbing down everything critical of Irsay

    You folks are pathetic drinking the Kool Aid he is serving

    Irsay is completely unprofessional with his approach

    Thumbs down all you want who cares

  22. rgwheeee says: Mar 17, 2013 6:46 PM

    Can the owner of a multi million dollar football team learn how to spell “nerve wracking” and…oh yeah…not tweet like he’s Miley Cyrus?

  23. blindzebras says: Mar 17, 2013 6:49 PM

    If it’s a WR he will be one of the younger ones (3-4 yrs exp.) someone to replace Reggie when his time is up a few years from now. If they can’t get it done, then try to draft Hopkins out of Clemson. the guy is a beast, can run the routes, runs a 4.41 40, and has velcro hands.

  24. nakedhookers says: Mar 17, 2013 6:52 PM

    Cannibus Irsay is a cool ass owner.

  25. cmcjab says: Mar 17, 2013 7:17 PM

    I love jimmy as an owner, nfl is still for our ENTERTAINMENT, and he entertains us. Thanks jimmy for keeping us up to date, #coltsstrong

  26. gbfanforever says: Mar 17, 2013 7:42 PM

    He already gave out huge money to the incomparable Eric Walden, what else could he have up his sleeve,LOL!

  27. indyeagle says: Mar 17, 2013 7:46 PM

    The suggestion that it might be Maclin made a lot of sense, yet it received many thumbs down. I’m curious, are the thumbs down because Colts fans don’t want him, Eagles fans don’t want to lose him, or you just think it’s a bad idea and will never happen.

  28. buffaloman70 says: Mar 17, 2013 8:19 PM

    Irsay has something in his pocket ( goodell ) how lucky can u be loose Peyton the same year Luck comes out and get the first pick and all the calls ??? One day it will come out he is bad for football

  29. thegreatgabbert says: Mar 17, 2013 8:45 PM

    Hey, Gabbert finished the year with a better completion rate and passer rating than Luck. So shaddup.

  30. andylucksneck says: Mar 18, 2013 7:12 AM

    Colts fans wish they had Dan Snyder as an owner instead of someone who tweets their possible moves. Irsay is a joke.
