The Jonathan Taylor saga continues for the Indianapolis Colts, as he continues to sit out, and the team continues to look for a trade that it would deem satisfactory.
He asked to be traded weeks ago after the Colts didn’t give him the lucrative contract extension he was demanding, and after initially hesitating, they finally agreed they would trade him.
Per Destin Adams via JPAFootball, there are seven teams that have shown interest in acquiring Taylor: the Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Rams, Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, and Washington Commanders.

Of those teams, the Dolphins, Chiefs, and Bills seem to be the most intriguing potential destinations for the 24-year-old star running back.
The Dolphins are 3-0 and arguably the best team in the NFL right now, mainly because of their explosive offense.
They already tried hard to land Dalvin Cook, a four-time Pro Bowl running back, before he went to the New York Jets, and although they currently lead the league in rushing yards and touchdowns, they’re merely getting it done by committee in that department.
Kansas City is 2-1 and may be just starting to get their mojo back, but they do not have any stud wide receivers and may be too dependent on star tight end Travis Kelce to win another Super Bowl.
The Bills are also 2-1, but some feel they’re on the way to playoff disappointment again, and acquiring Taylor could shake up the race for the AFC while giving them a shot in the arm moving forward.NEXT: Insider Shares Update On Jonathan Taylor's Trade Saga
