One of the most underrated free agents on the market is apparently already off the market prior to the start of the new league year. According to Stephen Holder of the Indy Star, the Indianapolis Colts have re-signed tight end Jack Doyle.
The #Colts and Jack Doyle have agreed to terms, per source. Big move for Chris Ballard … and Andrew Luck.

As Holder notes, this is a pretty big deal for the Colts. Taking on the role that was filled by Coby Fleener prior to him signing with New Orleans last March, Doyle performed at an near elite-level this past season.
The former undrafted free agent from Western Kentucky put up 59 receptions for 584 yards and five touchdowns for Andrew Luck and Co. He also recorded an absurdly high 79 percent catch rate.
While the terms of the deal are not yet known, it stands to reason that Doyle got paid big time here. He’s still just 26 years old and has built a solid relationship with Luck in Indy’s passing game.
