Indianapolis Colts in serious trade talks regarding a significant player

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”
“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!”
“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.

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.
