    Nothing may come of it (Irsay said it himself)

    But for you to guarantee it is just plain stupid...Seriously! You don't work for the Colts so stop trying to push your chest out..all due respect

    I've been told the Jets are reaching out to teams to acquire a right tackle via trade. Story here: http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1142747 #nyj
    it would make sense the jets are in trade talks with the colts..

    Why is that exactly? How are the Colts so loaded at O Line that they can trade a starting caliber player at this point? It doesnt make sense. They have a rookie QB, having a strong O line should be their first priority.

    Before the piggy backers show up allow me to tell you that I guarantee that your sarcasm meter needs to be checked.

    If anyone should know the value of a "guarantee" it is Jet fans.

    It is either that or we are somehow trading Hunter

    How the hell does taking a 22mil dollar cap hit free us from cap hell? Revis can't be trade this year. Period! We can't afford it even if they wanted to. His contract is pretty clear.

    LOL. Could you imagine.

    MJD, Demps, Woodhead. Nobody would see who is carrying the ball.

    He's a $3m cap hit next year. That'll change though since his deal will be reworked and extended after this season, much to the consternation of all the JI posters who somehow hate Revis for being awesome.

    Hopefully you are right but the front office has put themselves squarely in the position of running around now to try and solve a problem that should have been a top priority the moment last season ended. They went to great lengths to solve the safety problem as they should have, they did nothing about RT when it was very clear Hunter could not cut it last year.

    It seems Sparano and the new OL coach DeGuglielmo felt they could correct Hunter's mistakes with their new system/coaching..

    Indianapolis Colts in serious trade talks regarding a significant player



    9:51 PM, Aug. 23, 2012 | Written by Phil Richards |
    12 Comments




    It all started, then built, with Indianapolis Colts owner Jim 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, first-rung players who are unhappy with their contracts.

    A reliable source told me the Colts target is a cornerback. That could not be confirmed but there is a glaring need at left cornerback, opposite Jerraud Powers. Possibilities would include Dallas’ Mike Jenkins and Miami’s Vontae Davis.

    Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has aggressively worked to fill the need, trading for Cassius Vaughn, D.J. Johnson and Josh Gordy, signing Justin King as a free agent and picking up Korey Lindsay off waivers. All are cornerbacks, but none are of the quality Irsay is referring to when he speaks of spending a high draft choice.

    Jason LaCafora of nfl.com reported that sources say there have been no talks between the Colts and the Steelers regarding Wallace or between the Colts and the Cowboys regarding Jenkins.

    There are indications that whomever the target, talks are in a holding pattern at this point. Maybe some news tonight, maybe not.

    Which falls in line with the SI article I always harp on in which Dr Z was talking to a group of vet GM's and Ron Wolfe said "Never put much stock in what your oline coach says about the oline talent, use your own eyes because oline coaches will ALWAYS tell you they can coach up a player and make them at least passable."

    The GM had to look at last year and say 'This dude sucks in one and one blocking and we have to replace him.' and when the oline coach and Sparano said, we can make him good! Tanny should have said, thanks for the input and ignored them. Much like two years ago when Rex thought we had no problems at safety when it was clear we did. Position coaches can get too close to players and not see them for what they are.

    They also worked their magic on two new OTs in May .... Ray Willis and Stephon Heyer
