The Indianapolis Colts have another standout headed to Orlando, Florida, for the Pro Bowl, as tight end Jack Doyle was named as an AFC replacement to Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce on Monday.
It’s the second career Pro Bowl for Doyle, who also made the team back in 2017.
Doyle will join his Colts teammates: center Ryan Kelly, offensive guard Quenton Nelson, and linebacker Darius Leonard representing the horseshoe for this year’s AFC star-studded squad.
Doyle is coming off a season for the Colts in which he caught 43 receptions for 448 receiving yards (10.4 ypr. avg.) and 4 touchdown receptions—making all 16 starts.
Having missed 10 games in 2018 because of a hip and season-ending kidney injury, it was a nice bounce-back season for Doyle.
The 28 year old veteran tight end remains a sure-handed security blanket within the Colts offense—no matter who is starting at quarterback, but it’s the other little things that Doyle does at a high level such as blocking and being a great teammate—all while being remarkably consistent—which make him incredibly valuable for Indianapolis.
Simply put, he’s a quintessential “glue guy” for the Colts offense in that regard, as an all-around, complete tight end.
The Colts recently rewarded Doyle’s exceptional play at tight end with a 3-year, $21 million extension this past December—which keeps him in ‘Horseshoe Blue’ through the 2022 season.
The 2020 Pro Bowl will be played this Sunday, January 26th, 3 PM EST (ESPN/ABC), at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
