5 free agent tight ends Colts can target to replace Jack Doyle
The Indianapolis Colts must begin the process of replacing recently retired tight end Jack Doyle.
After nine seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, tight end Jack Doyle has decided to retire. He had the opportunity to play his career with his hometown team and left a great legacy.
Doyle is loved immensely by fans, teammates, and everyone within Indy’s organization. The Colts will struggle to replace Doyle for what he meant off the field, but Indianapolis must soon get to work on trying to replace him on the field.
With Doyle now retired and Mo Alie-Cox set to enter free agency, the only tight end contracted to return is Kylen Granson, who will be entering his second year next season.
Granson showed flashes of promise during his rookie season but he didn’t display that he was ready to be Indy’s lead tight end. This means the Colts will need to hit the free-agent market.
Luckily, there are a lot of tight ends that will soon be free agents that Indianapolis can pursue. Top names like Mike Gesicki, Dalton Schultz, and David Njoku have been franchise tagged and won’t make it to the market.
However, there are still many more free agents that can help Indy improve its passing game. Let’s take a look at 5 free-agent tight ends the Colts should target to help replace Jack Doyle.
