Are the Miami Dolphins getting another impressive offensive piece for Tua Tagovailoa?
Jonathan Taylor, a second-round pick by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2020 NFL Draft, is not happy with the organization or the market for running backs in the National Football League. A former standout at the University of Wisconsin, Taylor is rumored to possibly join the Dolphins. According to Barry Jackson, who covers the team for the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have contacted Indianapolis about Taylor. The 24-year-old is coming off a season-low 861 yards rushing and four touchdowns in 2022.
Miami has interest in making a deal, but a handful of other teams also have inquired, according to Barry Jackson.

He totaled 1,500+ rushing yards in 2020 and 2021, including a career-high 1,811 yards rushing and 18 touchdowns in 2021.

Taylor earned a Pro Bowl selection and first-team All-Pro honors. He led the league for rushing yards and touchdowns.
He dealt with an ankle injury last year, but Taylor is healthy now.
If the Dolphins pull off the move, Tagovailoa would have Taylor, Raheem Mostert, Devon Acahne, Jaylen Waddle, Cedrick Wilson, and Tyreek Hill. The fourth-year quarterback would have playmakers everywhere to distribute the ball to.
He would also have an elite rushing attack to take pressure off him. We will see what Miami does.
