The ongoing drama between the Indianapolis Colts and running back Jonathan Taylor has escalated publicly to now the Colts giving Taylor permission to seek out a trade with other teams across the league.

This whole situation between Taylor and the Colts started due to a zoom meeting involving running backs across the league regarding their value and getting paid accordingly. Colts’ owner Jim Irsay spoke his opinion about this call and Taylor’s agent replied back, noting that Taylor not being paid as the best player on the offense was a problem. Since then, there has been back and forth drama between the two parties. 

After Irsay said that the team will not trade Taylor moving forward, Adam Schefter reported that the Colts officially gave Taylor permission to look for a trade. Before being riddled with injuries last season, Taylor was the best running back in football in 2021 and it was not even remotely close. Sure, Taylor is going into a contract year and is looking to get paid eventually but the Bills would be a perfect fit for Taylor. 

Here are three reasons why the Buffalo Bills should trade for Taylor.
