SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah RB Zack Moss joined the KSL Sports Zone to talk about his time in Indianapolis and what’s next with the Cincinnati Bengals.

After playing 22 games with the Colts over the past two seasons, Moss signed a two-year deal with the Bengals this offseason.

Moss had nothing but high praise for everyone in Indianapolis and what the city did for his young career.

“It was great,” Moss said. “Definitely the best run I’ve had on and off the field. Teammates, coaching staff, just all of it was really good. I love all the people there. Now I’m looking forward to bringing that same energy to Cincinnati.”

Injuries plagued the Bengals in 2024 but they’re ready to come back with a new-look backfield.

With Joe Mixon moving on to his next team and Joe Burrow returning from the sideline, Cincinnati will get to enjoy a nice change of scenery in the upcoming season.

“It’s been good,” Moss said. “I’m super excited to be in Cincinnati. Another opportunity to play this game at a high level.”

After getting traded halfway through the 2022 season, Moss was forced to find his footing with a new team on the fly.

Now, Moss has an entire offseason to get used to a new system. He will also be back in a situation with a team that’s looking to compete for a title.

Regardless of what has happened so far in his professional career and what’s next, Moss is enjoying the opportunity to play the sport he loves at the highest level.

“I’ve always been a person that hasn’t had expectations,” Moss said. “I understand that life has a bunch of ups and downs and you have to figure out a way to navigate through that. It’s been a blessing.”
