Colts: 3 most likely trade destinations for Marlon Mack after recent rumors.
During the first three weeks of the 2021 season, the Indianapolis Colts have been in the limelight much too frequently.
Carson Wentz’s recent injury problems are due to the offensive line’s ineptness (two sprained ankles).
Owner Jim Irsay has previously chastised Wentz for his durability issues and vaccination status.
When you add in the defense’s unexpectedly slow start,
it’s no surprise the Colts are 0-3 and in desperate need of a win.
Remember how we said that Indy spends too much time in the spotlight?
On Tuesday, they were again in the spotlight when it was rumored that they had reached an agreement to transfer Marlon Mack.
It’s not a good image for the Colts to be unable to keep an upstanding person and top talent like Mack happy, and we really hope they can find a suitable landing place for the 25-year-old running back.
3. New York Jets.
Despite receiving a lot of attention for their offseason, the Jets are still the NFL’s most unwatchable club, so this isn’t a great landing place for Mack.
If additional chances are what he seeks, the Jets offense is in urgent need of playmakers to relieve the pressure on rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, who will be fortunate to make it through the season uninjured at the current pace.
Colts RB Marlon Mack could start for the Jets, but would it be worth it?
Ty Johnson, youngster Michael Carter, and veteran Tevin Coleman are all potential alternatives at running back for the Jets. None of them, though, have a resume as impressive as Mack’s,
who has run for 2,399 yards and 20 touchdowns while averaging 4.4 yards per carrying.
Given the specifics of the story, Mack seems to be forced to accept a possible deal before it can be finalized. Would he agree to a trade to the Jets,
who are currently winless? That really depends on if he’s ready to give up winning and production (the offensive line in New York is terrible) in return for more chances. In any case, he’d be a big boost to the Jets’ stale offense.
