Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle has been named to his first career Pro Bowl. Doyle will be replacing New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski as well -- he has more important matters to take care of.
The 27 year-old is coming off a career year in which he gathered in 80 catches, which was good for second most receptions by a Colts tight end in team history. He also gained 690 yards and 4 touchdowns.
While this numbers are impressive, it may be fair to expect more yards and touchdowns in 2018. The reliable pass catcher should be getting back his star quarterback Andrew Luck. The return of Luck coupled with the offensive genius of Josh McDaniels could potentially give Doyle a bigger role for years to come.

Doyle will be joining T.Y. Hilton as the only two players from the Colts this season. The game will be played January 28th in Orlando Florida.
