Colts, Hilton agree to five-year extension-- Thu Aug 13 5:20 pm --
$65 M, $39 M guaranteed
The Indianapolis Colts agreed to a contract extension with fourth-year receiver T.Y. Hilton on Thursday. The deal is for five years and is worth $65 million -- $39 million of which is guaranteed, agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed.
Hilton's $39 million guaranteed is nearly twice as much guaranteed money as any other player on the Colts roster. Quarterback Andrew Luck is second on the team in that category at $22.1 million, according to the Roster Management System.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Hilton will play his rookie contract out at $665,000, but his extension will make him the fourth-richest receiver - as things stand now - in the league once it kicks in after the season. It's a vote of confidence the Colts are confident in undersized wideouts Hilton and Phillip Dorsett working in tandem long-term with Donte Moncrief once Andre Johnson calls it a career.
