Colts, TE Jack Doyle agree to 3-year extension

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts have agreed to a three-year contract extension with tight end Jack Doyle, the team announced Friday. The three-year deal is worth more than $21 million, with it potentially being close to $24 million, according to a source.

Doyle has been the Colts most consistent and best all-around tight end since the team claimed him off waivers from Tennessee in September 2013. He has 236 receptions for 2,105 yards and 18 touchdowns in his career, all with the Colts. Doyle made his lone Pro Bowl appearance when he had 80 catches for 690 yards and four touchdowns in 2017.

Giving Doyle an extension helped the Colts from potentially losing the tight end during free agency in the offseason. Tight end Eric Ebron, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Nov. 25, will be a free agent this offseason.
