Jay Ajayi To Visit Colts

Jay Ajayi is set to visit with the Colts next week, reports NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (via Twitter).

It was only two years ago that Ajayi had just wrapped up a 1,272-yard campaign with the Dolphins. Since that time, the 25-year-old has been traded, forced to take on a reduced role, and suffered a major injury, and this will presumably reduce his value on the open market.

After being acquired from Miami during the 2017 campaign, Ajayi ended up playing a significant role for Philly en route to a Super Bowl championship. While he was the starter heading into the 2018 season, he was forced to share carries with several of his teammates. Ajayi then tore his ACL during Week 5, ending his season early. He ultimately finished the campaign having compiled 184 rushing yards and three touchdowns in four games (three starts).

The Colts aren’t necessarily hurting for running back depth. Marlon Mack had a breakout season in 2019, and they’re also rostering a pair of 2018 draft picks in Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins.

      Its still kind of shocking to me that non first round picks from 2015 are free agents. Time goes by too fast

  1. White Roddy

    Like the story alludes to…hard to estimate his market. I’d think he visits a few teams to gauge interest and figures before signing. I’m a fan and hope to see him healthy and productive wherever he ends up.

  2. Polish Hammer

    Shame he runs so hard but his body is shot at such a young age you can’t rely on him.
