AFC Notes: Colts, Texans, Titans


Colts’ owner Jim Irsay said there is a possibility for them to re-sign veteran free-agent WR T.Y. Hilton. 

 “I think there’s going to be an opportunity to have TY back … I know I’d love to see him back. He’s been one of the most loved Colts players we’ve had … we’d love to have him back, but it has to fit within the context of the roster,” said Hilton, via Keefer

As for the return of Colts RB Marlon Mack, Irsay said they are excited about the veteran sticking around and they “think the world of him.”

“Really excited about having Marlon Mack back. Really think the world of him. He’s a great football player,” said Irsay, via George Bremer

Irsay mentioned that they would “ideally” find their replacement for LT Anthony Costanzo in the 2021 NFL Draft. 

“It would be excellent to see one there in the draft,” said Irsay, via Kevin Bowen
