Is Colts Owner Jim Irsay In Mississippi To Sign Brett Favre?

Not to raise the specter of Rhymes With Met Carve or anything, but Colts owner Jim Irsay's tweet about being in Mississippi to do a deal with the devil like Robert Johnson did is suspicious as all get out.

Following that up with a tweet/misdirected direct message about Hattiesburg, where Brett Favre lives, is probably one of four things: a) a deliberate head-fake designed to distract while the Colts sign a veteran quarterback who isn't Favre, b) a sign the Colts will soon lure Favre out of retirement to back up for a still-recuperating Peyton Manning, c) a sign that the Colts are at least trying to do that, or d) Jim Irsay just kind of being a jerk and playing a REALLY UNFUNNY TWITTER JOKE.

For what it's worth, Newsday's Bob Glauber is worried, too.
