The next step in the ongoing Jonathan Taylor saga in Indianapolis is here. The Wisconsin legend was granted permission to seek a trade last night according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Taylor has been feuding with Colts owner Jim Irsay after public comments were made about the current running back market. The All-Pro running back has been rehabbing an ankle injury off-site during Colts training camp as the two sides work to resolve the issue.
The former Badger remains arguably the NFL’s best running back when healthy. He’s totaled 3841 yards in his first three NFL seasons including 33 touchdowns, a 5.1 yards-per-carry clip and First Team All-Pro honors in 2021.

We now wait to see his market with both legitimate draft capital and a new contract likely needed to pull off a deal.
