WR - IND
Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is expected to re-sign with the Indianapolis Colts on a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.
Hilton has been a free agent since the start of the league year and the Colts have expressed interest in other wide receivers on the open market, most recently Sammy Watkins. But Colts GM told Hilton at the beginning of free agency that the team still had an interest in retaining him, and the two sides agreed to a deal on Wednesday. In 2020, Hilton played in 15 games, catching 56 of his 93 targets for 762 yards and five touchdowns with Philip Rivers under center. In 2021, Hilton will be catching passes from Carson Wentz.
Josina Anderson is reporting that T.Y. Hilton will do his due diligence in free agency but that the Colts have asked for the opportunity to match any offers he received.
The wording in this report doesn't necessarily say that Hilton will bring offers to the Colts, but that Colts' General Manager Chris Ballard has asked to match potential offers. Now 31 years old, Hilton has failed to hit 1,000 yards in three of his last four seasons. The aging receiver has dealt with some nagging injuries throughout the last few seasons and missed a total of nine games over the last three years. With Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell, and Zach Pascal all younger than Hilton, the veteran could struggle to carve out a role on this team that would make him a value able fantasy asset.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton remains a free agent amidst contract negotiations with the organization's front office, as reported by Stephen Holder on Twitter.
Colts' head coach Frank Reich went on to say, "I think we're all hoping there's a way T.Y. can end his career as a Colt... But we understand there's a business side to it... I hope the business side can get worked out so he can end his career as a Colt." Hilton has spent his entire career with the Colts and is coming off back-to-back 500+ yard, five touchdown seasons. It took awhile for the veteran wideout to get going in 2020 but he finished the year strong, scoring all five touchdowns after Week 12. If Hilton is unable to come to an agreement, he should have plenty of suitors to choose from in free agency.
T.Y. Hilton caught two of five passes for 32 yards in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round loss to the Bills.
The Bills were able to shut down Hilton on Saturday who had finished with a disappointing stat line for fantasy owners. The veteran wide receiver will be a free agent in the offseason and may have played his last game for the Colts.
T.Y. Hilton secured three of seven targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' 28-14 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.
Hilton had a tough start to the season but turned things around in the second half and finished with 56 receptions, 762 yards, and five touchdowns. Look for the veteran wide receiver to be relied on heavily in the playoffs.
