TY Hilton teases a return to Indy after a good Draft by the Colts
The Indianapolis Colts added several new players between the NFL Draft and undrafted free agency, and they may soon be bringing back TY Hilton.
Over the weekend, the Indianapolis Colts added eight players in the NFL Draft and several more undrafted free agents. Indy was able to build depth and address positions of need.
The first selection for the Colts was wide receiver Alec Pierce from Cincinnati. Pierce will be tasked with providing Indianapolis with a consistent No. 2 receiver.
Fortunately, he will be coached by one of the best receivers in franchise history, Reggie Wayne. Also, he may soon have the opportunity to learn from one of the other best receivers in franchise history.
Free-agent TY Hilton responded to a tweet about the possibility of returning to Indy’s young wide receiver room. He gave fans hope but not a definitive answer.
TY Hilton is thinking about returning to Colts
Last year was Hilton’s 10th season in the league and 10th year with Indianapolis. As his contract ended, he openly contemplated retirement.
Hilton decided that he still wants to play and he has been one of the many veterans taking their time in free agency. He expressed that he was open to going anywhere but he has also had ongoing communication with Chris Ballard.
Last season was Hilton’s worst statistical year of his career but a big reason why was injuries. Both Ballard and Hilton believe he still has a lot to offer when healthy.
Whatever TY Hilton can offer, the Colts certainly could use. Not only is his play needed, but he’d be a veteran voice in a young wide receiver room.
With Michael Pittman Jr., Alec Pierce, and Parris Campbell, Hilton would be a great veteran to add to the mix. Additionally, there’s stability at quarterback with Matt Ryan and Hilton will be coached by the veteran receiver that showed him the way.
