Colts bring back WR T.Y. Hilton on 1-year deal
The Indianapolis Colts are bringing back Pro Bowl wide receiver T.Y. Hilton for a 10th season on a reported one-year, $10 million deal.
In a post to Twitter on Wednesday, Hilton said, “… It’s only right I finish what I started. #TYISHOME”
Colts owner Jim Irsay also took to Twitter to post, “Someone’s on his way home.”
ESPN and NFL Network reported the deal is worth up to $10 million.
Hilton comes off a season for the Colts in which he caught 56 passes for 762 yards and five touchdowns in 15 starts. The 31-year-old stated last year he wanted to be a “Colt for life” heading into the final year of a five-year, $65 million deal he signed in August 2015.
For his career, the four-time Pro Bowl selection has 608 catches for 9,360 yards and 50 touchdowns in 133 games (112 starts), all with the Colts. He led the league with 1,448 receiving yards in 2016.
Hilton was a Pro Bowl performer every year from 2014 to 2017, missing just one game in that span while averaging 75 catches for 1,221 yards and 5.5 touchdowns. He led the NFL with 1,448 receiving yards in 2016.
He has since missed games with myriad injuries but has never played in less that 10 games in any one season.
