Doyle was undrafted out of Western Kentucky in 2013. He joined the Tennessee Titans practice squad that year before being released and joining the Colts. He was claimed off of waivers, disallowing the Titans to bring him back after final roster cuts.
In 131 games played and 84 starts, Doyle had 295 receptions for 2,729 yards and 24 touchdowns. He only had six total fumbles, with five of them being recovered by the opposition. Doyle’s best year came in 2017, when he racked up 690 yards and four touchdowns. He was only two years into a three-year contract when he announced his retirement.
