RandBall: Colts owner Jim Irsay helping Vikings try to trade that No. 3 pick

Yes, that's the Twitter account of Colts owner Jim Irsay. And yes, he is referring to (though misspelling the first name of) Vikings owner Zygi Wilf. And yes, he is most certainly trying to help Minnesota -- whatever the reason -- drum up interest in the No. 3 overall pick with a potential QB-starved suitor. He's referring to Ryan Tannehill, a QB prospect from Texas A&M who some draft wonks think could be deserving of going with the third pick.

The most intriguing possible suitor? Miami has the No. 8 pick, and their new offensive coordinator (Mike Sherman) was Tannehill's college coach at Texas A&M.

Some have suggested the Vikings could get a second- and third-round pick just for swapping those five spots with the Dolphins. Who said that? Bill Polian. THE FORMER COLTS GM.

What's up with these guys? Thanks, but seriously: WHAT'S UP WITH THESE GUYS?

Also, obviously: If you are the Vikings, you do this in a heartbeat.
