Jason La Canfora mentions that the Colts are expected to be “very proactive” in signing their 2012 draft class to contract extensions.
According to La Canfora, WR T.Y. Hilton is likely the first player up for the Colts to address.
Hilton just recently re-hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent before beginning talks regarding a new contract, so indications are that progress could be made in the coming months.
Andrew Luck is, obviously, the most notable player in the Colts 2012 draft class, but Indianapolis does have the ability to pick up his fifth-year option and take care of his at a later point.
Hilton, 25, has one year remaining on his four-year, $2.642 million rookie contract, which includes a base salary of $665,000 for the 2015 season.
Last year, Hilton caught 82 passes for a career high 1,345 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the N0. 10 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
