In current weeks, the Indianapolis Colts and Jonathan Taylor have actually been butting heads. During a conference with owner Jim Irsay in July, the All-Pro TB asked for a trade. After that conference, Irsay openly stated the group had no strategies to trade Taylor.
However, the Colts did make Jonathan Taylor readily available for a trade previously today. Since then, numerous groups have actually contacted us to ask what it would require to make a trade occur. In the mix for Taylor are the Philadelphia Eagles who supposedly have actually been “among the most aggressive suitors” for the 24-year-old.
The Eagles would have among the very best QB-RB duos in the NFL if they had the ability to trade for Jonatan Taylor

When the Colts made Jonathan Taylor readily available for trade, they set s couple of specifications. The group that trades for Taylor will be accountable for signing his brand-new long-lasting offer. In return, they desire a first-round choice or a Christian McCaffrey-type offer. Last season, the Eagles took pleasure in a 14-3 routine season and made a journey to the Super Bowl.
They did it with an RB committee last season. Philly had a couple of gamers who might bring them in the running video game, consisting of QB Jalen Hurts who had more than 700 hurrying lawns and 13 hurrying goals in 2022. If the group did indication Jonathan Taylor, he would instantly become their finest RB without concern.

In their existing RB space, the Eagles have D’Andre Swift, Rashaad Penny, Kenneth Gainwell, and Boston Scott. Philly parted methods with Miles Sanders this offseason, generating Swift and Penny to their RB rotation. That would all entirely alter if Taylor did get traded to the Eagles. No RB on the Eagles’ lineup has actually had anywhere near the success that Taylor has actually had in his brief profession.
Taylor is an unique gamer, however the Eagles may not be a practical landing area for him. There’s no concern that he would make their offense that a lot more amazing. They have strong RBs on their lineup currently. Additionally, General Manager Howie Roseman likely wouldn’t wish to quit what the Colts are requesting for. Chances are that Jonathan Taylor is not with the Eagles in 2023.
