Their first date was at a basketball game between the Salem Rams and the Penns Grove Red Devils, Taylor said.

While Chapman was visiting Ball State, Taylor played football in Wisconsin before the Colts selected him with the 41st overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Taylor led the NFL in rushing yards (1,811), rushing touchdowns (18), and scrimmage yards (2,171) last season, earning his name in MVP talks. He was also linked with Charges running back Austin Ekeler for most touchdowns (20).

Taylor announced the couple’s engagement a day earlier Indianapolis traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders.

The Colts gave the Commanders second- and third-round picks in the 2022 NFL Draft and a third-round pick in 2023, which ESPN says can move up to a second-round pick if Wentz plays 70 percent of the snaps.

Now the colts are supposedly being watched 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
