Now it’s a matter of how much of their money they want to run through his pockets.
During a videoconference with reporters today, Hilton said he hopes to extend his deal with the Colts beyond this season.
“I want to be a Colt for life, but it takes two sides to get it done,” Hilton said, via Zak Keefer of TheAthletic.com.
The 30-year-old Hilton is entering the final year of his deal, and is scheduled to make $14.5 million this year.
The Colts have made what amounts to a one-year bet on quarterback Philip Rivers, but Hilton should still have a number of productive years left, so it’s not like they can’t project into the future there.
He said they started talking about an extension before the coronavirus lockdown began.
