Good morning Colts Nation,
As the offseason starts to heat up, two of the biggest non-playing days of the year are Free Agency Opening and the NFL Draft. Like most, I've always put a lot of my attention into the Draft, especially because of my love affair with College Football. But last year I decided to join Twitter and follow along as Free Agency opened up...
WOW! It is some kind of crazy as soon as that clock hits 4pm... We all hear about what Free Agents are talking to what teams, and we speculate and dream about which guys our team will try to sway, but if you want to be right in the middle of the action, I highly recommend joining Twitter if you haven't already done so, and "follow" all of the big Indy and NFL guru's. They'll tell you what teams are currently talking to which Free Agents, where players are flying to visit, what offers are being made, and eventually what contract deals have been signed... all of it is within MINUTES or even SECONDS after the events happen. This is the beauty of sports and twitter. Here are some of the handles I recommend:

All NFL guys:
...I'm sure you all have more you like to follow too, feel free to share! I more or less wanted to give some help to those who were interested in seeing another side of the free agency chaos. Honestly, it's pretty fun to see unfold. While not all of the business is done on Tuesday, the Colts are expected to be VERY active right at 4pm and on through the evening. Also, if you want to give me a follow that works too (I'll be retweeting/tweeting all throughout, assuming I get out of work in time):
