The Indianapolis Colts are treating an extension for T.Y. Hilton as a priority.
The Colts drafted Phillip Dorsett in the first round last month.
"Again, we'd like to make some progress, possibly get something done sooner rather than later," he said, via the team's official website. "It obviously takes both sides to come to a sort of comprised agreement so to speak. I think we're optimistic. Obviously, my belief is and our team's belief, Ryan (Grigson) and Chuck (Pagano) as well, is draft great players, keep great players. We've kept great players into their second contract obviously Reggie (Wayne), Robert Mathis, (Dwight) Freeney, the list is long. We want to be able to do that. I think the most critical thing is to draft great players and to keep them in their second contract. We're coming to that crossroads on some key guys like T.Y., so I do expect something to get done there eventually for sure."
