Jonathan Taylor Potential Extension
Taylor has been atop the league at his position since entering the NFL in 2020. Despite his 2022 campaign ending early due to a nagging ankle injury, the star back is expected to be extended an offer to remain within the Indianapolis Colts organization.
Although Indianapolis has missed the playoffs in back-to-back seasons, it is in no way due to a lack of production on Taylor’s end. The young star had rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons and was on pace to break 1,000 yards in his third before his injury.
Comparing his numbers, age, and production to other star backs in the league, Taylor looks to be in line for a hefty payday. The former Badger could be in for an offer of four years, $52 million. With an annual salary of $13 million, Taylor would be paid as a top-three back in the league.
