Jim Irsay, the bombastic owner of the Indianapolis Colts, says his club is ready to make a major trade. And, of course, Maurice Jones-Drew, the disgruntled Jacksonville Jaguars running back, is available.
Irsay took to Twitter on Thursday to say the Colts were seriously looking to make a deal, following up that tweet with another about new General Manager Ryan Grigson being willing to gamble and that the owner himself would open his checkbook to get a trade done.
Then came a third tweet: TRADE WINDS BLOWING. Yeah, all caps.
Kind of like MJD. Jones-Drew has been a holdout this summer, waiting for the Jaguars to improve his contract, which still has two years left on it to the tune of more than $9 million.
Jones-Drew said he's willing to be traded in the wake of Jacksonville owner Shad Khan refusing to renegotiate his deal and saying to MJD, "The train is leaving the station. Run. Get on it."
