I bet it's about Mike Wallace. Steelers don't want to pay him he would fit in Arians offence and with Collie potentialy injured again he makes the most sense IMHO.

Chris Mortenson went on ESPN and said he believes Irsay is blowing smoke. Just trying to rile up the NFL and the twittterverse

There are players in positions of need that could be available, while blockbuster trades usually don't end up happening, but who knows. As a Chiefs fan, I'm just hoping it doesn't involve Bowe because in the end I am hoping we'll re-sign him next year. But if rumors popped up I honestly wouldn't be the least bit surprised.

Wallace and MJD are not the potential targets. The one that I have heard mentioned that I really like was Vontae Davis from the Dolphins. He is only 24 yrs old and already a very good corner. Paired with Powers we could have a solid duo for years to come.

Cary Williams was also mentioned, most likely because of the connection to Pagano.

michaelombardi tweet:
My guess of the Irsay tweet, would lead me to a defensive player from either Baltimore or Philadelphia who wants a new deal---Cary Williams?

I will also still hold out hope for Wallace though...

Heard that it could be Wes Welker.

Looking forward to seeing who it could be. Hoping it's a corner to help improve our defense.

Irsay is tripling down on the trade talk. With the cut down date looming and IMO Powers leaving the game with injuries. It seems to me that all talk of the target being anything but a CB is farfetched.

FYI - Powers tweeted last night that he is fine and if it were a regular season game he wouldn't have left

If you are need ing WR depth, how about Ryan Whalen? Luck's favorite WR target at Stanford.

While you could always just hope he gets cut and pick him up as the first waiver wire team, would there be interest in a future 6th or 7th rounder to make sure we don't trade him elsewhere? Could be in two years if you don't have one this upcoming draft.

No thanks. We will sit and wait to see who is available and we have already traded too many picks away this year.

Griff Whalen overtook that role already plus we have Fleener, who I would consider is actually his favorite WR. Why would we trade a late round pick for a guy who probably wouldn't even make the roster, especially when the season starts soon? If Grigson ever made that pick, he'd be an idiot in my book no matter what else he does for the year.
