One of his latest tweets--well, it is most certainly out there.
Ever since the Peyton Manning Era ended Irsay has become all about doing whatever possible to bring in players that can actually help. With stopping the pass the key to success in the NFL these days it would make sense to look for talent in the secondary--especially if that talent is a perennial Pro Bowler (was might be a more appropriate word) and available at the bargain basement price of league minimum.
I'm talking about newly released veteran safety Ed Reed.
But ole Jim here is not your typical owner. He isn't just thinking about bringing the former Houston safety to Indianapolis (wouldn't that make for a cool reunion when the Texans come to town in a few weeks?), but he's--well--thinking outside of the box.
Just a little.
ColtsFans...Ed Reed signs,goes to WR,with limited special packages for WR plays; backs up safety n plays some role n return game/Yes-no?

As you could expect, his exploratory tweet has moved some folks to reply in a rather creative manner:
@JimIrsay or u could sign ocho or TO along with Ed Reed while you at it.

Thanks for the laugh Mr. Irsay. That's a good one.
