Tyler Eifert: Back with the Bengals

Tyler Eifert: Back with the Bengals”

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Eifert agreed to a one-year deal with the Bengals on Thursday, less than 24 hours into the start of the free agency period.

Eifert should slot in as the Bengals' starting tight end again, provided he's healthy.

Since being selected with the 21st overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Eifert has spent his first five years in the league with the Bengals. There are mixed emotions on the deal but most of Cincinnati is happy to have their red zone star back in the orange and black for another year. With a one-year deal, Eifert will need to prove that he can stay healthy and return to Pro Bowl form. He eventually had surgery to fix.

A dislocated elbow in Week 1 that ended his 2014 season. His contract with the Bengals is likely littered with incentives and injury clauses, given his history of missing games.

An ankle tear suffered in the Pro Bowl in January that kept him out of action for the first six games of the regular season.

Since the start of 2016, he's only played 10 games and has undergone several procedures, including back and knee surgeries.

Eifert only played in 2 games this past season because of a back injury, being placed on the injured reserves list after receiving the surgery. The latest indication of that trend came this week when the Rams reportedly tried to sign Tyler Eifert.

Many speculated Eifert would test free agency after an injury-plagued career, but this ensures he'll be around for at least another season.

Unfortunately, you can not talk about Eifert without also looking at the numerous season-ending injuries.
