The ever colorful (and cryptic) Jim Irsay on Thursday evening suggested that his Indianapolis Colts are on the verge of a big trade, tweeting the following:

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com interprets the tweets thusly:

Curiously, former NFL personnel man Michael Lombardi, now of NFL Network, has completely different players in mind:

Not sure how long we may have to wait to see who is right -- or if, as Irsay wrote in hedging his bets, the deal may "crumble."

UPDATE: As reporters try to suss out the deal, Jason LaCanfora of NFL.com has some names to cross off the list:
