In addition to praising his now-former teammate, he said he's dedicating the 2019 season to the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback.
Luck rocked the football world Saturday when he confirmed he was walking away, citing how he had fallen out of love with the sport after suffering numerous injuries throughout his career.
Hilton and Luck formed a dynamic connection in Indianapolis. Together they combined for 6,503 yards and 34 touchdowns through the air, per Pro Football Reference.
Nobody questions Luck's value to the Colts. The team went 4-12 in 2017 while he was recovering from shoulder surgery. Then it won 10 games and made the playoffs in 2018 when he returned.
However, Indianapolis could use his sudden departure as a source of motivation, much as Hilton will do in the year ahead.
