J.J. Taylor reportedly hoped he would receive a fresh start outside the Patriots organization after New England released the running back ahead of the 53-man roster cutdown.

It appears Taylor might be one step closer to receiving his next opportunity.

Taylor worked out for the Indianapolis Colts, according to a report Monday from NFL reporter Aaron Wilson. Wilson reported last week that Taylor also worked out for the Houston Texans.

Taylor spent the majority of his time in New England on the practice squad after joining the franchise as an undrafted free agent in 2020. Taylor played 12 games in three seasons for the Patriots.
