The GM Shuffle discuss Jonathan Taylor’s contract drama with Colts

Hosts Michael Lombardi and Femi Abebefe break down Jonathan Taylor’s trade request and the bizarre comments from Colts owner Jim Irsay.

Things are getting ugly for star running back Jonathan Taylor and the Indianapolis Colts.

Seeking a new contract, Taylor is the latest running back who is frustrated by NFL teams’ lack of compensating the position fairly. Even though Taylor isn’t franchise tagged, like Saquon Barkley or Josh Jacobs, he can read the writing on the wall and wants a new contract now before he’s out of options next year.

And that’s where things get tricky.

Following Taylor’s trade request, Colts owner Jim Irsay made some truly bizarre comments following a meeting with his starting running back.

On Tuesday’s episode of The GM Shuffle, hosts Michael Lombardi and Femi Abebefe chat about Irsay’s comments and what the future holds for Taylor.
