He’ll make a little less than $7 million total over four seasons, which could feel nice with what WRs are getting paid on the open market.
At 6’3”, 212 pounds Pierce has impressed early on in rookie minicamp. On Saturday, the rookie stood out and had quite a day in the red zone with two touchdown catches.

Alec Pierce had some moments of dominance in today’s Colts rookie camp practice. Absolutely killed it in the red zone.
Pierce’s impressive start to rookie minicamp is just one of the many reasons why the Colts have high hopes for him going into the 2022 season. Pierce also put up impressive numbers during his final season with Cincinnati, as he had 52 catches for 884 receiving yards and eight touchdowns.
The Colts are hoping Pierce can bring a similar kind of production to their offense and that the rookie will be able to make a significant impact from Day 1 this season.
