Taylor still has one year left on his rookie contract and was looking to gain some long-term security. As any running back in the NFL knows, that leverage isn't easy to come by — just ask Saquon Barkley, who was forced into a bad, short-term deal earlier this summer under similar circumstances.
DraftKings has posted odds for Taylor's next team, which is only available in some states, such as Illinois and Colorado.
The Miami Dolphins are the favored landing spot for Taylor at DraftKings at +250 odds. Bettors on this market will have their bets void should Taylor suit up for the Colts for his first snap of the 2023 NFL season.
The Chicago Bears are close, second-best favorites at +400. After the Bears, there are three teams hovering around +700 are the Ravens, Broncos and Cowboys.
