While this is a great development for Jonathan Taylor, the situation remains incredibly complicated due to the logistics of moving a player of his caliber – especially in the market that we’ve seen unfold over the course of the offseason.
The Colts are reportedly asking for a 1st round pick or a combination of picks equivalent to a 1st round pick. Given that Taylor would likely require a new contract, it’s going to be difficult for Indianapolis to find a realistic suitor for the talented running back.
The most obvious landing spots are Kansas City and Miami, but it’s hard to imagine the Chiefs shelling out big money for a running back when they’ve proven that they can reach and win a Super Bowl without the services of a top-tier RB. Miami would be an excellent destination for Taylor, who would immediately step in as the unquestioned lead back on an already-loaded Dolphins offense.
