Jonathan Taylor Trade Rumors: Latest News and Potential Partners for 2023 NFL Season

Jonathan Taylor Trade Rumors: Latest News and Potential Partners for 2023 NFL Season

The Indianapolis Colts have placed star running back Jonathan Taylor on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, indicating that a trade involving him is not imminent, according to NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, citing anonymous sources. Taylor will miss at least the first four games of the 2023 season due to starting the campaign on PUP.

The Colts initially refused to take calls on Taylor after he requested a trade in July, but eventually granted him permission to seek a trade eight days ago. However, the increase in communication did not produce an enticing offer for the running back. With the cutdown deadline arriving at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, the Colts decided to keep Taylor on PUP instead of occupying a roster spot.

Taylor, who was seeking an extension ahead of his final season under contract, first requested a trade following a meeting with Colts owner Jim Irsay. He spent the entirety of the preseason on PUP after undergoing offseason ankle surgery. Despite this back-and-forth between appearing at the team facility and stepping away during camp, little significant movement has occurred regarding Taylor's standing with the club.

Tuesday's news means that Taylor won't be available to head coach Shane Steichen for the first month of the season. It remains to be seen if the two sides will mend fences and find a way to work together in 2023, or if their divorce is only a matter of time.
