Saturday night, the football world saw a shocking headline as Jonathan Taylor had reportedly requested a trade from the Indianapolis Colts. While it seems far fetched, the Chicago Bears might be a perfect pairing, here.
Now, let's first establish the fact that Colts owner Jim Irsay stated the team does not plan to trade Taylor. However, the further we get into the summer and the closer we get to the season, that might change, depending on how this relationship between Taylor and Irsay evolves.
The two of them met, and apparently that's when Taylor made his request. So now the question becomes, would the Colts bite on any offers?
Should the Chicago Bears go all-in and make an offer for Jonathan Taylor?
The. Bears are definitely an intriguing team when it comes to a potential Taylor trade. Just imagining Taylor in a back field behind Justin Fields is a pipe dream. But, if it came to be, the two of them would create one of the most lethal run games this league has seen in recent memory.
Adding a top-10 rusher in Fields, to one of the league's best running backs in Taylor, has to equal fireworks, right? Not to mention, the Bears have more weapons and protection around Fields than they've had in his first two seasons as a pro.
Ryan Poles went out and improved the defense through free agency and the draft, too. So, Taylor could be a missing piece to a surprising Bears team. Chicago would be a team to watch in the NFC North, once more. But, what would it take to get Taylor? Let's look at a couple of possible trades.
