It has been a roller coaster NFL off-season for Mike Wallace of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but that all could end soon if recent reports of the young wide receiver being dealt to the Indianapolis Colts are true.

Colts owner Jim Irsay did the breaking news himself on Twitter with several mentions of a blockbuster deal possibly happening before the start of the season. He mentions that the team is looking into adding a serious veteran starter to help on offense and several high draft picks could be used in the deal.

Most experts believe that Maurice Jones-Drew is the player in question, but the Colts don't use the running game much and a stud receiver would help rookie quarterback Andrew Luck and his confidence. Bleacher Report writer Ian Hanford has suggested that Wallace is the target and with all the salary issues the youngster has had with Pittsburgh, a deal to move to the Colts would be a great move for him and the team.

The NFL doesn't have too many big name players changing uniforms, especially this close to the start of the season, but this could help the Steelers inside the locker-room and the Colts on the field, but compensation will become a big issue if this deal takes place.

Update: While we hate to rain on your parade, Colts fans, Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com has tweeted that the Colts are not talking to the Steelers about Wallace. La Canfora cites "multiple sources."

I would rather have Wallace on the field with us, but I would take multiple high draft choices for him any day of the week. If the front office really values him, he'll be here. If not, maximize his trade value and parlay it into some new cornerstones. I trust Colbert's prowess at the top of the draft without question.

It will be MJD if anyone.

The first article cites that the Colts don't use the running game much? Which Colts? The ones with Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, and Dallas Clark?

They have Arians as the OC now and a rookie QB. I don't believe for a second that they wouldn't love to have MJD to ease the load on Luck.

The Colts would never get MJD. There is a Junior College TE out there somewhere that Brucie is drooling over instead.

Is there a "Must trade by this date" kind of deadline?

Pure Speculation!! Not sayin' it's not possible, but I'm also gonna say it's not probable.

This also means that their D won't have to play him twice a year too. I expect the Colts will look a bit different than in years past. With all the changes it would be hard not to.

Any chance we could get their first rounder? It would be a good one. Probably top 10. Colts aren't exactly stacked this year.
We are retooling our OL and DL, so this may not be a SB run. Wallace is gonna be a puss all year.

Irsay could be the barker in a traveling show, the way he is handlingthis.

(There's a Ruthlessburger Graphic challenge in there somewhere).

Seriously, though...I think Irsay is the worst owner in pro sports.

His twitter ramblings paint him as a complete lunatic.

Jim Irsay’s Twitter Account Apparently Hacked By 12 Year Old Girl

“OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Irsay read in a prepared statement.

Jim Irsay, owner and CEO of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, apparently had his Twitter account hacked late last week by what expert language analysts say is, “a young suburban teenager, probably a 12 or 13-year-old girl.”

The 53-year-old Irsay, who was probably furious Thursday when the teen hacker tweeted, “TRADE WINDS BLOWING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,” has not yet publicly commented on the assumed prepubescent hooligan, probably because he’s trying to contact the girl’s parents so they can give her a good scolding, sources speculated.

As the weekend brought fresh tweets from the mischievous grade schooler which read, “I can bring u NFL Manos to the edge of the water,but I can’t throw you n,that’s called tampering..but FOE REEL…the sh*t is HOT,STAY TUNED!” and, “No,trade winds still howlin’…but only time will tell if they were ghostly vapors or a flesh n blood upgrade!!!!!!!, Irsay, who has managed the world-famous NFL franchise for sixteen years and has a personal net worth of over 1.4 billion dollars, never once expressed frustration over the continued pranking, presumably because, as a powerful and wealthy businessman, he is far too professional to stoop to the level of an obviously poorly educated youth.

When news broke Sunday afternoon, that the Colts had completed a trade for Miami Dolphins CB Vontae Davis, the hacker once again seized control of Irsay’s account, writing “Sum of u slow infants 2 running an NFL team..you draft the right players,hire the right coaches n management to succeed,that’s Ownership!”

“Well, this is just awful. Whoever wrote this is practically illiterate,” said Andrea Carmichael, an English teacher at a local Indianapolis area middle school. “Obviously, no successful American businessman would produce drivel like this. Whichever adolescent punk is responsible for this garbage, I hope she gets caught and I hope she gets grounded.”

Continued requests for a statement from Irsay’s office for this story yielded only a single email replay which read, “hav2 get bck 2 u on dat,” followed by seventeen exclamation points and an animated gif of what appeared to be some sort of cartoon rainbow cat flying through outer space on a toaster pastry.
