The Colts need to re-sign Zack Moss

Saying the Colts should spend money on two veteran running backs within the same year might sound crazy. But, even after extending Jonathan Taylor, the Colts need to bring back Zack Moss as well.

Moss was a guy the Colts invested in when they traded Nyheim Hynes and a sixth rounder for him back in 2022. In 2023, Moss made a huge impact during Taylor's impact, and even had a role once Taylor returned. Some might have been surprised by Moss' emergence in 2023, but the Colts weren't. He made an impact right after being acquired the prior season, averaging 4.8 yards per carry with Indy in 2022.

The one-two punch the Colts can boast with keeping Moss alongside Taylor could make them one of the best rushing teams in football, if they wanted to be. Indianapolis already finished as the 10th-best rushing team in football a year ago, and with a healthy Taylor and bringing Moss back, they could finish even higher in 2024.

Once Richardson is fully healthy, the ground attack is going to be one of the league's best if they are able to keep all three of these guys in the same back field.
