Why the Bengals re-signed injury-prone TE Tyler Eifert

Though both player and team were initially optimistic that Eifert would not have to undergo another surgery, the discomfort he was still experiencing weeks after exacerbating the injury ultimately made going under the knife the best course of action. "I've done that before", Eifert said, per Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com. The franchise tag for tight ends in 2018 was $9.846 million, so the Bengals saved some money in the deal.

A shoulder injury that caused him to miss one game.

The Bengals got just four receptions out of Eifert last season before back and knee problems ended the tight end's season. It probably will be similar to deal for Vontaze Burfict, whose extension last fall included a large base salary, a smaller signing bonus, and significant per-game roster bonuses. In Eifert's case, it will protect them if he gets injured again.

Eifert was notably a Pro Bowler in 2015-16, his third season in the league, when he caught 52 passes for 615 yards and eight touchdowns. Signing with a new team is always a risk, and Cincinnati is a place where he knows he can be successful.

Beal scores 34, Wizards beat Celtics in 2OT
Tatum took advantage of the blunder and tied the game at 115 after an and-1 layup with just 3.1 seconds left. The Celtics held a one-point lead with 50.8 seconds to play in the longest, most drawn out part of the game.

While Eifert's first foray into free agency probably was disappointing, this could be a make-or-break year for his career.

As for Eifert, it gives him the security of one more season to prove himself before he goes through the same free agency process against in 2019. This is good news to the Bengals because, if healthy, Eifert is one of the most unsafe threats in the NFL.

Eifert really broke out during the 2015 season and was a big key in the Bengals' 12-4 record.
