Top-5 Preseason Trade Block Targets
It's Trade Season in the NFL
Football fans, get your popcorn ready because training camps have just opened, and that means it's the prime time to watch out for potential trades. You see, some teams have veterans that might be considered too costly, or perhaps they've not lived up to expectations. On the flip side, a younger player might be stepping up and impressing coaches, making those veterans expendable. Teams often tip their hand by showcasing these players in preseason games or joint practices.
Now, let's dig into the Top-5 options on who could be sporting new jerseys by early September.
Jonathan Taylor, RB, Indianapolis Colts
This keeps getting weirder.
The top trade option wasn’t even on the radar last week, but he finds himself the top option today. The running back market has been frustrating and highly visible recently. Now, the Colts’ elite RB has requested a trade out of Indy.
The Colts outspoken owner has specifically denied the trade request, but like sharks with blood in the water, teams will be interested in acquiring a talent of Taylor’s caliber. Taylor will need a contract prior to next season, so the question will be is any team giving up a mid-round pick with signing him long-term?
