T.Y. Hilton has been one of the more underrated receivers in the NFL since entering the league in 2012. But his time with the Indianapolis Colts could be nearing its end.

The 31-year-old wideout is an impending free agent this offseason, and he's been posting some pretty cryptic tweets about his NFL future recently.

It sounds like Hilton will certainly be exploring his options this offseason, at the very least. This comes on the heels of another tweet he sent at the beginning of the month, which also cast some doubt about his future in Indianapolis.

At this point, it's certainly not a given that the Colts will re-sign the downfield burner. They have promising young wideouts on the roster in Michael Pittman Jr. and Parris Campbell, and Hilton's production has fallen off in recent years.

Still, he showed more than enough down the stretch to be attractive to any WR-needy organization, averaging 72.5 receiving yards per game over his final six regular-season outings. And pairing a premier deep threat like Hilton with a 39-year-old Philip Rivers wasn't exactly a recipe for success for the wideout.

Don't be surprised to see a team with money to burn, like the Jacksonville Jaguars or Miami Dolphins, lure Hilton away from Indianapolis this offseason.
