Besides addressing their starting quarterback issue, one of the Indianapolis Colts' major decisions this offseason pertains to wide receiver T.Y. Hilton. The nine-year pro is slated to hit free agency, giving him a chance to play for his first team outside of Indy since he entered the league.

When asked about possibly re-signing with the Colts, Hilton had a mysterious response.

Hilton's reply doesn't exactly sound optimistic for Colts fans hoping to see the wideout back next season. Saying things have to "work both ways" shows that Hilton isn't satisfied with whatever deal is currently being talked about, and he can possibly pressure the team into upping their offer by playing hard ball.

By not showing his hand, Hilton can also signal to other WR-needy teams that he's certainly available for the right price. He's creating a market for himself by saying he thinks the Colts want him back, which could spur another franchise to dial-up their pursuits.

With the third-most projected cap space this offseason, Indy certainly has the room to bring Hilton back, but they could pursue an upgrade as well, using some of their money to add a No. 1 wideout to an offense with Michael Pittman Jr. and Jonathan Taylor already in place.

At 31 years old, this is Hilton's last chance to secure a solid NFL payday, and he's absolutely taking advantage of the situation.
