First off, I have to beg Robert Mathis' forgiveness for not writing about his Twitter exploits last night, but I was recovering from a new, 30-minute workout routine that almost gave me a heart attack. Fortunately, Stampede Blue writer Josh Wilson caught Robert's brilliant but not-so-subtle Twitter suggestions on who the Colts should potentially target in free agency in 2013, and summarized it here.
For this write-up, we'll just present Robert's tweets and let you, the reader, make up your mind as to who he is referring to:
