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.

Colts.com’s Kevin Bowen reports the "coaching staff has made it clear" fourth-round SS Clayton Geathers will have a role in sub packages.

Geathers saw time with the first team and as a Dime linebacker at OTAs. He’s competing with Dwight Lowery for the starting job opposite Mike Adams, and could open the year in a rotational role. A box safety with 4.55 speed, Geathers should make his biggest impact against the run.

Colts signed third-round DE Henry Anderson to a four-year contract.

Anderson (6’6/294) played in multiple roles at Stanford, but is expected to be a five-technique in Chuck Pagano’s scheme. He showed better than expected athleticism at the Combine, finishing as a top performer in the three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle. Anderson should push for rotational snaps behind Kendall Langford and Art Jones.

Colts signed No. 65 overall pick CB D'Joun Smith to a four-year contract.

Smith and DE Henry Anderson are the final two draft picks to sign. A three-year starter at Florida Atlantic, Smith ran 4.45 at the Combine with a 36-inch vertical. The Colts have been getting him reps outside and in the slot. Smith will open the season as Indy’s No. 4 corner.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells doesn't expect OG Donald Thomas to make the team.

Thomas has missed 30-of-32 regular-season games the past two seasons due to injury and has become an afterthought for the Colts. Jack Mewhort and Todd Herremans are expected to be the Colts' starting guards with Hugh Thornton and Lance Louis as backups. Indy can clear $3.5 million by cutting Thomas.

Colts.com’s Kevin Bowen expects third-round picks D’Joun Smith and Henry Anderson to be on the field for the start of training camp.

Smith and Anderson are the only two remaining unsigned draft picks after Tennessee agreed to terms with Marcus Mariota. The sides are reportedly dealing with hangups over contract language. The Colts expect both players to be signed before camp opens on August 2.

Colts LT Anthony Castonzo is expected to command $9 million to $10 million annually on his next contract.

The 22nd overall pick in the 2011 draft, Castonzo is entering the final season of his contract. He is one of only a few effective Colts linemen; Andrew Luck's pocket mobility and toughness routinely mask Indy's protection flaws. Castonzo turns 28 early next month. He is owed $7.438 million this year.

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.

Dwayne Allen shed 13 pounds this offseason.

Allen has slimmed down to 255 after playing last season at 268. The 25-year-old hopes the weight loss will help him play faster. Allen reeled in eight touchdowns last year, but only amassed 60 yards once in 13 contests. He's a touchdown-or-bust fantasy contributor sitting on the low end of the TE1 spectrum.

Coach Chuck Pagano admits the Colts will have to be "smart" with Robert Mathis (Achilles') this season.

"When he gets cleared, we’ll get him back on the grass," Pagano said. "Then when we get him back, we’ve got to be smart with how we get him back. ... I don’t know. If anybody can do it, I’m putting my money on him." Pagano's boilerplate comments are notable for what they don't contain — certainty about Mathis' return date and 2015 role. Mathis has promised he'll be ready for Week 1, but he's an obvious candidate for the reserve/PUP list.

Colts.com’s Kevin Bowen considers Duron Carter a candidate for the practice squad.

The Colts are expected to keep five receivers, leaving Carter, Vincent Brown, and Griff Whalen to compete for one spot. Carter offers the most upside, but his lack of special teams value is working against him. Carter could draw interest on waivers if he doesn’t make final cuts.

The Colts are expected to "spread the field" with more "three- and four-receiver formations" this season.

It's the natural evolution for Indianapolis after the team invested big money in Andre Johnson and a first-round pick in Phillip Dorsett, with T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief already on the roster. The biggest loser figures to be No. 2 tight end Coby Fleener, whose playing time seems certain to drop. Dwayne Allen's role should be secure because he is so valuable as a blocker, an especially necessary attribute on a team with a sub-par offensive line.

Andre Johnson said he "thought about" playing for the Dolphins, but Miami never called him as a free agent.

"I always had a dream of playing at home," said Miami native Johnson. "I was a huge Dolphins fan. But they never called." It's pretty much meaningless, but interesting nonetheless considering the Dolphins overhauled their receiving corps during the offseason. They traded for Kenny Stills, drafted DeVante Parker, and signed Greg Jennings, so it's a bit puzzling they didn't even call Johnson.
Jul 7 - 11:05 PM

Colts signed DT Jeris Pendleton.

A 2012 seventh-round pick of the Jags, Pendleton spent one game on the Colts' active roster in 2013. He was out of the league last season. He'll be the longest of long shots to crack Indy's 53-man roster.
Jun 30 - 3:09 PM

Colts ILB Nate Irving (ACL) could be ready for the start of training camp.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Irving is "ahead of schedule." Signed to a three-year deal in March, Irving should provide an early-down run stopper to complement D'Qwell Jackson and Jerrell Freeman when healthy.
