Jim Irsay is in Phoenix for the NFL owners meetings, and he got the Twitter-following portion of his fan base worked up late Saturday, Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star reports.
This much is clear, unless Irsay is just flat-out yanking everyone’s chain: a wide receiver is about to be added to the roster.
After revealing the team had been working on a deal to add yet another player to the roster, he narrowed it down.
“Colt Fans,hint—–it’s a Wide Receiver!!,’’ Irsay wrote.
Yep, narrowed it down.
Of course, all that did was further stoke the speculation.
The New York Giants’ Victor Cruz? Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald? Miami’s Davone Bess? Seattle’s Doug Baldwin?
Let’s continue to speculate. Baldwin lacks the pizzazz of Fitzgerald and Cruz, even Bess. But there are dots to connect. The Seahawks signed him as an undrafted rookie in 2011. That’s after he played at Stanford with Andrew Luck and for Pep Hamilton.
But something’s up. Here’s Irsay’s tweet that got things hoppin’: “ColtFans, we already past the cap cash wise/ we’re working on a deal, 1 we’ve been workin on for 5 days/ we’re very,very close 2 making it work.’’
