Why is glowering Jonathan Taylor still here?
The unhappy Colts running back attends every practice, mean-mugging and avoiding the fans. His presence is toxic. Send him away -- for now.
WESTFIELD -- Practice is over, and on one side of the Colts field, Anthony Richardson is making his way along the Grand Park stands, signing autographs and generally ingratiating himself to his new biggest fans, wearing a broad, inviting smile all the while.
Practice is over, and other the other side of the field, Jonathan Taylor is slowly walking alone, clad in black sweats with a black hoodie and a white Colts shirt, his glowering visage unchanging. He is not giving autographs these days, at least none that we saw.
Let’s be honest: Taylor’s presence here at training camp is toxic. His presence here is an ever-present reminder that this team is missing their best offensive player because Taylor’s reps and the Colts can’t seem to agree on a contract, much less the smaller details, like whether he injured his back while working out in Arizona.
The Taylor haze hovers over this camp like the smoke from the Canadian wildfires.
