Jonathan Taylor release official statement amid rumors of trade request away from colts

Jonathan Taylor: “I Ain’t Going Nowhere” Regarding Colts Trade Rumors.

Jonathan Taylor had been in a protracted contract dispute with the Indianapolis Colts for months, but he had never considered switching teams.

In an interview for the podcast The Trenches Show, Taylor said that as the situation developed, he “really didn’t see myself anywhere else: “Nahh, I ain’t going nowhere.

Taylor made the decision to attend training camp, which saved him from incurring daily fines of $40,000 as required by the NFL CBA, but he wasn’t satisfied with the state of his contract going into this season.

Taylor requested a trade after meeting with Colts owner Jim Irsay, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on July 29.
Irsay texted The MMQB’s Albert Breer to tell him that the 24-year-old would not be traded.

Three weeks later, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Indianapolis had given Taylor permission to look for a trade.
Due to the Colts’ request for a first-round draft pick or a combination of picks equal to one in exchange for the running back, according to ESPN’s Stephen Holder, it appeared unlikely to happen.

In addition, Taylor’s market was hampered by the fact that he was still healing from off-season ankle surgery.
He was placed on the physically unable to perform list at the start of the season, which kept him off the field for the first four games.

Taylor and the Colts reached an understanding on a three-year, $42 million extension the day before Taylor’s 2023 debut in Week 5.
This ended their dispute.

Taylor was initially selected by the Colts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
In each of his first two seasons, he ran for more than 1,000 yards.
In 2021, the Wisconsin alumnus led the league in rushing attempts (332), rushing yards (1,811), yards from scrimmage (2,171), and total touchdowns (20).

This season, Taylor is getting back up to speed slowly.
In two games, the former Wisconsin player has 99 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns.
