Colts coach Chuck Pagano said WR T.Y. Hilton is in the league's concussion protocol.

Hilton likely suffered the injury during the third preseason game, but he was not diagnosed until after the game. His status for Week 1 is unclear. The Colts open the season against the Bills in 13 days.
Aug 31 - 12:56 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 3-of-6 targets for 44 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Hilton was finding holes in the defense like it was the regular season. The Colts' shifty No. 1 receiver finishes the preseason with five grabs for 96 yards. Although the receiver corps has gotten considerably more crowded in Indy, Hilton remains a WR1.
Aug 29 - 11:12 PM

Colts signed WR T.Y. Hilton to a five-year, $65 million extension that includes $39 million guaranteed.

Hilton was owed $665,000 this season, the final year of the contract he signed as a third-round rookie in 2012. Now he's signed for the next six years at an average annual salary that comes in around $10.8M per season, well below the Dez Bryant/Demaryius Thomas deals but in line with recent contracts signed by Randall Cobb and Jeremy Maclin. The Colts, who still need to sign Andrew Luck and LT Anthony Castonzo, apparently see no problem with Hilton and his clone Phillip Dorsett playing together. Those two undersized speedsters plus Donte Moncrief will be Luck's receiving corps once 34-year-old Andre Johnson moves on.
Aug 13 - 7:50 AM

The Colts and the agent for T.Y. Hilton will continue face-to-face contract negotiations Wednesday.

Despite drafting Hilton clone Phillip Dorsett in the first round and having Donte Moncrief in the fold, the Colts are serious about locking down Hilton. He's entering the final year of his contract at a base salary of relative pennies ($665,000). Hilton is reportedly seeking Dez Bryant/Demaryius Thomas kind of money, which will be tough with the Colts still needing to do the Andrew Luck deal.
Aug 11 - 12:46 PM

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports the Colts are "working diligently" toward an extension with contract-year WR T.Y. Hilton.

Getlin does acknowledge there is "no definitive timeline" for a deal to be finalized. Although many assumed Hilton was as good as gone after the Colts used a first-round draft pick on Phillip Dorsett, both local and national media have reported Indianapolis remains intent on locking up Hilton long term. Hilton's Dynasty owners, in particular, should hope for a deal.
Aug 3 - 6:44 PM

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.
Jul 16 - 9:11 AM

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.
Jun 14 - 11:34 AM

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.
Jun 11 - 7:18 PM

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.
