INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. said he will be “staying home” in a Monday post on “X,” confirming a 3-year-deal with the team.

The post on X, a platform formerly known as Twitter, stated Pittman and the Colts have agreed to a deal worth up to $71.5 million with $46 million guaranteed.

Pittman quoted the tweet with “Staying home.”

During a press conference last week, head coach Shein Steichen said:

“When you have a reliable player like Pitt that is going to show up every Sunday and make plays like he does, it definitely helps a young quarterback,” he said. “To keep getting that chemistry with those two guys, building, will be huge for (quarterback) Anthony (Richardson’s) growth.”
