Frank Reich on T.Y. Hilton: We’ll see how things play out

Colts coach Frank Reich said he sees “a lot of upside” in his receiving corps. Still, the Colts likely aren’t done adding to the position.

A familiar name could end up back on the roster: T.Y. Hilton remains on the free agent market.

Reich brought up Hilton’s name on his own.

We’ll see how things play out,” Reich said, via Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan.

The Colts’ selections next week likely determine their post-draft interest or lack thereof in Hilton.

Michael Pittman had 88 catches last season, but he is the only returning wide receiver who caught more than 13 passes for the Colts in 2021. Parris Campbell, Ashton Dulin and Keke Coutee are other key players at the position.

Hilton, 32, spent his first 10 seasons with the Colts and has totaled 631 receptions for 9,691 yards and 53 touchdowns. He has not played every game in a season since 2017, which was his last Pro Bowl season, and he last had 1,000 yards in 2018.

  1. Neither TY nor Parris Campbell can stay healthy. And they’re the only two guys (theoretically) who should be able to stretch the field. Not happening with them. Thank you, TY, for an amazing career. Sign a 1-day contract with Indy, retire, and return when you deservedly are inducted into the Ring of Honor. You have earned it. To Campbell: This is your last year to put it together. Good luck.

  2. The lack of talent at wide receiver tight end and offensive tackle is beyond belief…. And Ty Hilton will do little to improve the wide receiver room… There is no other GM in the league that has ignored or has gathered such weak talent in those positions other than Chris Ballard… The locker room is looking at you Chris
