Tight end Tyler Eifert returning to Bengals

Tyler Eifert is back.

The 6-foot-6, 255-pound tight end is reportedly signing a one-year deal to return to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Eifert has been one of the better tight ends in the NFL when healthy. He’s been hampered by injury throughout his career. He missed most of the 2018 season after breaking his ankle in a Week 4 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

During the 2016-17 seasons, he played a total of 10 games. He played just one game in the 2014 season.

In 2015, he caught 52 passes for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns.

The Bengals re-signed tight end C.J. Uzomah to a three-year deal earlier this week.
