Tight end coming off his best season in NFL.

Tuesday, March 07, 2017 06:43 pm

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts have re-signed backup tight end Jack Doyle, keeping him off the free-agent market. Terms of the deal were not immediately known.

Doyle had the best season of his four-year career in 2016. He finished with 59 receptions for 584 yards and five touchdowns. He has 94 catches, 793 yards and eight TDs in his career.

The Colts claimed the Indy native and former ball boy for the NBA's Indiana Pacers off waivers from Tennessee on Sept. 1, 2013.“Jack is a consummate professional who is highly revered among all in this organization,” said Colts General Manager Chris Ballard. “He possesses a tremendous amount of talent and you can witness how much he loves playing the game when you watch him compete. Jack has emerged as a leader in his four seasons with this team and we’re thrilled he’ll be returning. We also want to thank his agents Buddy Baker and Matthew Pope for their efforts throughout this process.”

The news comes the same day another Indy native, offensive lineman Joe Reitz, announced his retirement.
