The Indianapolis Colts were looking to trade their star running back, Jonathan Taylor, but for the right price. The Miami Dolphins were heavily connected to Taylor and it was believed the team was close to trading for him. That wasn’t the case as the Colts were asking for way too much in return for the Taylor. If the Dolphins wanted Taylor, they were going to have to trade Jaylen Waddle and some more to the running backs services. That is not happening as Chris Grier said yesterday that Waddle would not be available for any team to trade for.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
