Team 5: The Cincinnati Bengals

You could have probably guessed that, finally, we're going to mention the Cincinnati Bengals. Now, this is a team that would be very, very unlikely to make a deal for Taylor, mostly because they and Joe Mixon agreed on a pay cut this offseason. That keeps Mixon around at least this season, if not next year as well if the team doesn't decide to part ways and take on a little bit of dead money.

But, in some far fetched world, let's say the Bengals made a deal for Taylor. How frightening would that offense be? You have a top-2 quarterback in Joe Burrow, plus Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins on the outside with Taylor in the back field.

Now, on the other hand, it would certainly be fun to see if this team could unseat the Chiefs this year within the AFC. It would make for one heck of a Championship Game, should the two teams finish as the first and second seeds and make it all the way there.

But, from the Colts' perspective with a team like the Bengals, or even some of the previous teams, it wouldn't make sense from a draft capital perspective. Ideally, the Colts get some decent draft capital and those picks don't come in toward the end of the round.
