Jonathan Taylor, Colts

Dolphins expected to explore trade for Colts star RB Jonathan Taylor

Over the past month or so, the Colts have been trying to deal with star Dolphins RB Jonathan Taylor. Taylor requested to be traded after contract talks fell apart.

Colts owner Jim Irsay wasn’t thrilled with the public trade request and was adamant about not trading Taylor. His response seemed to make matters that much worse in Indianapolis.

Now the team is willing to move Taylor as they’ve given him and his representation permission to seek a trade, and the Miami Dolphins might be the team that comes calling, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

“Per a league source, the Dolphins are expected to at least explore a trade for Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, who has been given permission to seek a trade. Not sure where this will lead, but it would make sense in that he’s only 24, 1st team All-Pro & NFL rush leader in ’21.”

Miami would be an ideal destination for Taylor as they’ve been looking for a lead back to complete the offense. The team already has a stacked offense led by Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.

The addition of Taylor would instantly make the Dolphins a serious threat in the AFC. It would also make the AFC East more imposing, with no telling which team would come out on top.

It’ll be interesting to see if the Colts and Dolphins can come to terms on a deal before Week 1.
