ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Colts free agent TE Jack Doyle plans to test the free agent market next week, despite Indianapolis recent attempts to sign him to a contract extension.
It’s hard to blame Doyle for wanting to see what’s out there for him in free agency when he’s in line to be one of the biggest beneficiaries this offseason.
Doyle, 26, originally signed on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Western Kentucky back in 2013. He lasted just a few months in Tennessee before he was waived at the start of the 2013 season and later claimed off of waivers by the Colts.
Doyle returned to the Colts on a one-year, restricted tender last season and is now in line to be an unrestricted free agent.
In 2016, Doyle appeared in all 16 games for the Colts and caught 59 passes for 584 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 16 tight end out of 63 qualifying players.
