Do you think the Colts should trade Jonathan Taylor?



Indianapolis, Indiana – Jonathan Taylor vs. Jim Irsay is the unexpected training camp matchup.

On the owner’s opulent bus on Saturday, Taylor and Irsay met. Later, word spread that Taylor had asked for a swap.

The conflict arose because Taylor and Irsay were unable to reach consensus on a contract extension prior to the start of training camp.

Taylor wants to extend his contract, but Irsay has stated that the Colts do not currently have any plans to do so. Taylor’s ailment is a factor in the decision to extend his contract, according to Irsay as well.

Taylor has already stated to the media that he wants to extend his contract and plans to be a Colt for the rest of his life. Taylor’s relationship with the Colts, though, began to deteriorate following a Twitter exchange between Taylor’s agent and Irsay on NFL running backs asking to be paid more.

On Monday, rumors abounded regarding Taylor’s prior injuries and the potential for the running back to be added to the non-football injury list.

By doing that, the Colts would be able to forgo paying Taylor’s contract for the 2017 campaign.

Taylor, who ran for more over 6,000 yards and scored 55 touchdowns while playing for the University of Wisconsin, was selected by the Colts with the 41st overall choice in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. While sharing carries with former Colts running back Nyheim Hines, Taylor carried for 1,169 yards, scored 11 rushing touchdowns, and scored 1 receiving touchdown in his rookie season.

The former Wisconsin Badger had a breakout sophomore season, rushing for a league-best 1,811 yards, scoring 18 touchdowns on the ground, and adding two touchdown catches. Taylor was selected for the Pro Bowl after garnering the most fan votes and receiving unanimous first-team All-Pro honors.

Taylor had a bad year in 2023. He only gained 861 yards on the ground and scored four touchdowns in all while sitting out three games due to an ankle injury.
