The Colts have already acknowledged that their passing game is going to run through T.Y. Hilton.

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.

    Get what you are saying, but “passing game runs through” is kind of an oxymoron.

  2. One year project and then the offense gets blown up. New qb, wr, and probably rb.
