Things are not sunny in the Indianapolis camp, for sure. Amidst the rumor that the star running back has requested to be traded. Jonathan Taylor is one of the major cogs in Indianapolis’ success. Even though Taylor has demonstrated his great potential and performance on the field, the star is still very much concerned about his contract extension and a long-term commitment to his game. Therefore, he has requested a trade.
Taylor has been a major name for Indianapolis. He has been integral to the team’s success in the past few seasons. And now, when a contract dispute arose, everyone in the Indianapolis camp is currently wondering about Taylor’s replacement. As soon as the news of Taylor’s swap became public, the whole situation became a media circus, with many outlets claiming that Taylor had declared an ‘all-out war against his team.’
Taylor is currently approaching the final year of his rookie contract with Indianapolis. Therefore it is understandable why he is looking forward to an extension. After a conversation with Colts owner Jim Irsay, Taylor has cemented his decision to go forward with the swap. When Irsay was questioned about the contract dispute, he said, “It was just a good conversation and, you know, hopeful going forward…We’re looking forward to a great season, hoping that Jonathan’s a big part of that, and I think we had a good conversation.”
However, Taylor’s version seemed different. Even though Tylor did not release an official as of yet. However, according to sources, Taylor has significantly shifted his focus and is looking forward to shifting his priorities elsewhere. Still, when Irsay was confronted about the rumor that the swap might actually happen, this is what he had to say, “We’re not trading Jonathan… end of discussion. Not now and not in October!” Therefore, creating a smoke-and-mirrors kind of situation for fans and fellow players.
