Just when it looked bleak for the Indianapolis Colts…
Jack Doyle was reportedly willing to test the free agent market this week. The former undrafted free agent has been a security blanket for Andrew Luck over the last few seasons. And now he will remain in Indianapolis.
The #Colts and Jack Doyle have agreed to terms, per source. Big move for Chris Ballard … and Andrew Luck.

The deal is reportedly for three years, but not details have emerged on the finacial side of the contract. Earlier today is was rumored that Doyle would be inked to around $7 million a year. A price tag that would not allow the Colts to keep their backup tight end around.
