Agent Drew Rosenhaus tells Bleacher Report's Jason Cole he's talking with the Colts about a long-term contract for T.Y. Hilton.
Per Cole, Hilton is seeking Dez Bryant/Demaryius Thomas money, which is $14 million per year. That might seem high for the pint-sized wideout, but the salary cap is expected to take a significant jump in 2016. Cole expects a deal to get done "relatively soon." We're not as sure, especially after the Colts drafted Hilton-clone Phillip Dorsett. Indy may want to take care of Andrew Luck before handing out any other long-term deals. Jul 27 - 1:31 PM

Contract-year WR T.Y. Hilton is not expected give the Colts any hometown discount.

Hilton was licking his chops Wednesday as Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas netted $70 million contracts. "All this BREAKING NEWS. Does this mean the bar is set?? #THEGHOST," he tweeted. Hilton is not expected to do a deal prior to the season, meaning he'll hit unrestricted free agency in eight months unless he's franchise tagged. The Colts, who will be paying Andrew Luck soon, are going to struggle to keep him in town. They prepared for that possibility by drafting a Hilton clone in Phillip Dorsett at No. 29 overall.

T.Y. Hilton said if the Colts want to pay him, "they'll pay me."

Hilton said he wants to focus on football and let his agents handle the contract negotiations. "It takes both sides to come to an agreement," he said. "I leave that up to my agent and just go out there and have fun." It's hard to imagine the Colts letting Hilton walk after the kind of season he had in 2014. Of course, it depends on how much Indianapolis plans to spend on Andrew Luck's next contract.

Indy Sports Central's Mike Chappell is "convinced" T.Y. Hilton will wait until after the season before considering re-signing with the Colts.

Turning 26 in November, Hilton is entering a contract year. Owner Jim Irsay has expressed confidence that the Colts would extend Hilton, but Chappell isn't sold after hearing GM Ryan Grigson discuss the situation on Thursday. The Colts may want to lock up Andrew Luck before considering pouring money into Hilton, especially after drafting Phillip Dorsett in the first round.

Colts owner Jim Irsay believes a new deal for T.Y. Hilton will eventually get done.

Irsay suggested Hilton's new deal could be wrapped up before Week 1. Some questioned Hilton's long-term future in Indianapolis following the first-round selection of Phillip Dorsett, but the Colts appear to have no intention of letting Hilton walk after his contract year. The Colts continue to say Hilton can co-exist with Dorsett, but are going to have to pay him top-10 receiver money. Hilton is expected to command $10 million annually.
Jun 10 - 7:20 PM

T.Y. Hilton's long-term future with the Colts is unclear.

Hilton is heading into the final year of his rookie deal and the Colts just selected his clone, Phillip Dorsett with the 29th overall pick. They're also currently working on a mammoth extension for Andrew Luck, which will squeeze their cap significantly. So while Hilton's re-draft stock for 2015 is intact, his Dynasty prospects are on shaky ground. He'd take a big hit if he's not playing with Luck, indoors and for a team that led the NFL in pass attempts last year.
May 7 - 8:18 AM

The Indy Star claims the Colts' selection of Phillip Dorsett won't affect T.Y. Hilton's long-term future with the team.

Dorsett's size and skill set is more than a little similar to Hilton's, but the Colts are confident the two can co-exist. Hilton will have plenty to play for heading into a contract year, and he'll likely be seeking around $10 million annually on his next deal. We'll see if the Colts are willing to pay that after they drafted his clone in Dorsett.
May 1 - 11:44 AM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said the addition of Andre Johnson should take pressure off T.Y. Hilton.

With Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks fading fast, Hilton was Andrew Luck's no-doubt No. 1 receiver last season. He'll still occupy that role in 2015 but Johnson is dangerous enough to attract defenders, which means Hilton shouldn't see as many double-teams. For a wideout who relies on speed rather than physicality, that extra breathing room will be an enormous benefit. Just 25 years old, Hilton has a chance to actually improve on last year's 82-1,345-7 line.
Mar 24 - 11:32 AM

T.Y. Hilton has re-hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent.

Andrew Luck is the more ballyhooed Colt entering the final year of his rookie contract, but Hilton was the home run hit by GM Ryan Grigson in the third round of that 2012 draft. He's under contract for just one more season and eligible for an extension. Despite his small stature, Hilton can play on the outside much like Mike Wallace. The Colts may lock up both Luck and Hilton this offseason. Luck will be top priority. Hilton will likely be looking for close to $10 million annually.
Feb 17 - 9:47 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught one pass for 36 yards in Sunday's 45-7 AFC Championship Game loss at New England.

Instead of sticking Darrelle Revis on Hilton, the Patriots used Kyle Arrington and a safety over the top to shut him down. Hilton shouldn't hang his head as Bill Belichick defenses eliminate the opponent's top weapon weekly. Still, it's a disappointing end to a breakout season for Hilton, who cemented his "born playmaker" reputation by going 83-1,345-7 as Andrew Luck's No. 1 option. There's always going to be inconsistency when we're talking about a 5'9/178 wideout, but Hilton is unique player operating with a generational quarterback. He'll be a strong WR2 at worst in 2015, the final year of his rookie contract.
Jan 18 - 10:23 PM

T.Y. Hilton secured 4-of-9 targets for 72 yards in the Colts' Divisional Round win over the Broncos.

The Broncos oddly matched up Aqib Talib on Hilton -- rather than Chris Harris Jr. -- and T.Y. made them pay. Hilton's first catch went for 20 yards, beating Talib on an inside slant. Hilton again beat Talib late in the first quarter for a gain of 23. Hilton also drew a pass-interference flag on Talib early in the second quarter, setting up Dwayne Allen's TD. The Colts now head to Foxboro for the AFC title game. When the Patriots and Colts played during the regular season, New England primarily assigned slot CB Kyle Arrington to Hilton, with Darrelle Revis on Reggie Wayne. We'd expect Hilton to see more of Revis in the rematch.
Jan 11 - 7:57 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 6-of-14 targets for 103 yards in the Colts' Wild Card win over the Bengals.

Despite the 100-yard effort, it was a frustrating day for the Colts' No. 1 receiver. Looking gimpy early, Hilton committed no fewer than three drops, one of which would have gone for a long touchdown in the first quarter. He muffed a second potential score after the break. The good news is, Hilton was running free after initially appearing to be battling his bulky hamstring. He'll be ready to rock as Andrew Luck's top weapon for Indy's Divisional Round trip to Denver.
Jan 4 - 4:28 PM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is practicing in full Wednesday.

Hilton played one half in Week 17 and emerged without any setbacks. He's ready to rock for Sunday's home game against Leon Hall, Terence Newman and the Bengals. When these two teams met in Indy Week 7, Hilton had 7-109-0 on nine targets as the Colts won 27-0.

T.Y. Hilton didn't catch a pass in one half of action during Sunday's Week 17 win at Tennessee.

Hilton looked healthy, but was covered well on each of his three targets. The Colts took away his helmet in the second half, ensuring they'll have their No. 1 wideout at 100 percent for next week's Wild Card game. The late-season injury hurt Hilton's fantasy owners badly, but he was a breakout stud as a third-year pro with 82-1,345-7.

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is active and Dwayne Allen (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 game at Tennessee.

Even though the Colts have almost nothing to play for, Hilton is a go as they try to get their offense on track. It's unclear how long he'll play. Meanwhile, Allen's absence gives Coby Fleener a big boost. The rest of the Colts inactives: DB Sheldon Price, LB Jerrell Freeman, OL Joe Reitz, OL Gosder Cherilus, LB Bjoern Werner, DL Zach Kerr.
