Aug 13, 2015 10:49 AM

T.Y. Hilton and the Indianapolis Colts have agreed upon a five-year, $65 million deal with $39 million in guaranteed money.

Hilton's $39 million guaranteed is nearly twice as much guaranteed money as any other player on the Colts roster.

"It's a great day for the Indianapolis Colts, T.Y. Hilton and his family," Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said in a statement. "We're extremely happy as an organization to ensure that T.Y. will continue to be a part of our journey for many years to come. His daily excellence on and off the field is a shining example of an individual striving for greatness and what it truly means to be a Colt."


Hilton is coming off his first Pro Bowl appearance after posting 82 receptions for 1,345 yards last season.

Colts Release Gosder Cherilus

Jul 26, 2015 5:58 PM

The Indianapolis Colts have released Gosder Cherilus, who was their starting right tackle.

He was one of the main free-agent acquisitions by the Colts in 2013, when Cherilus signed a five-year, $34 million contract.


Cherilus battled knee, shoulder and groin problems last season before eventually being placed on injured reserve prior to the playoffs.

The 31-year-old Cherilus had offseason knee surgery, which kept him from taking part in organized team activities, including a mandatory three-day minicamp in June.

Indianapolis tried to restructure Cherilus' contract before cutting him, according to an NFL source. Cherilus' agent Greg Diulus also acknowledged contract negotiations when discussing his client's release.

No NFL Contract Has Ever Had More Than $64M In Guaranteed Money

Jul 13, 2015 10:06 PM

Guaranteed contracts remain incredibly rare in the NFL as the league employs nearly four times the number of players as the NBA with higher rates of injuries.

No NFL players has been guaranteed more than $64 million, but that could change in the immediate future.

Andrew Luck is entering the fourth season of a five-year deal that will pay him $3.405 million in 2015 and, for the moment, $16.155 million in 2016. 

Jim Irsay has targeted this winter for contract talks.

Luck could command a five-year deal worth approximately $125 million. But he could also pursue a deal that is fully guaranteed or nearly fully guaranteed for an average closer to $20 million that would help the Indianapolis Colts build a team around him.

Colts Treating T.Y. Hilton Extension As Priority

Jun 11, 2015 1:10 PM

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."

La'el Collins Meets With Cowboys; Dolphins Next

May 7, 2015 1:18 PM

La'el Collins met with the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday and will meet with the Miami Dolphins in the next 24 hours.

The Dolphins had several former LSU teammates such as Jarvis Landry and Anthony Johnson visit Collins on campus.

Collins went undrafted last week after police in Baton Rouge said they wanted to speak to him as part of their investigation into the murders of Brittney Mills and her infant child. Police spoke to Collins on Monday and said he was not a suspect in the case. A paternity test also showed that Collins was not the father of the child.


Collins also had dinner with Rex Ryan of the Buffalo Bills this week, while the Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts are also interested.
