2019 Free Agent Profile: Tyler Eifert


Tyler Eifert may be one of the best tight ends in the NFL. Unfortunately, he has had serious injury problems that have kept him from consistently playing. Over his six years with the Cincinnati Bengals, Eifert has only played in 43 games.

Eifert has played in more than eight games in only two of his seasons. In those two seasons, he was one of the better tight ends in the NFL. In 2013, Eifert's rookie season, he had 39 catches for 445 yards and two touchdowns while starting 15 games. In 2015, Eifert was named to the Pro Bowl after playing in 13 games and getting 52 catches for 615 yards and an impressive 13 touchdowns.

Eifert is an effective receiving tight end, but he also excels in run blocking. When healthy, he was consistently the highest-rated run-blocking tight end on Cincinnati, according to Pro Football Focus.
