Contrary to a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals team president Mike Brown wants impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert to return in 2018, although Brown admits any deal he offers Eifert will take into account the fact 'he's literally played less than half the time' due to all of the injuries he has suffered throughout his pro career.
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer gives Eifert a 10 percent chance of re-signing with the Bengals.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is an impending free agent and the Cincinnati Enquirer puts the chances the Bengals re-sign Eifert at "10 percent." Eifert has said all options are on the table, admitting his lengthy injury history will likely cloud some things. He is recovering from a second back surgery in two years and also needed a recent knee scope. Eifert has missed 41-of-80 games in five seasons but was dominant in 2015 when healthy, proving to be a huge red-zone weapon. He is still just 27, but the body is breaking down. Eifert's free-agent case will be interesting to follow. He may have to take a one-year deal.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert could return to the team, as Cincinnati has not ruled out re-signing the free agent. Eifert had multiple back surgeries and appeared in just two games last season. The Bengals got a third-year leap from Tyler Kroft in his absence, but run a lot of dual tight end sets. Eifert's best chance at reestablishing his value may be returning to the Bengals on a prove-it deal.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (knee), who is already out for the season after having back surgery, had another surgery to remove a cyst on his knee. Eifert is eligible for unrestricted free agency after the season. Eifert's on-field abilities as a top red-zone tight end when healthy mean nothing if he can't stay healthy, and that's been the story so far in the 27-year-old's career. He was able to score 13 touchdowns in 13 games played in 2015, but he's since only managed to play in 10 games the last two years, and he was healthy for just two games in 2017 before being ruled out for the season. Eifert will have to latch on with another club and prove he's healthy before fantasy owners will invest much in him. He's only worth holding in dynasty leagues at this point.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (back) has been officially placed on injured reserve, thus ending his season. Eifert was in Los Angeles on Wednesday to get a second opinion regarding surgery after experiencing pain and discomfort throughout the season. Opting to have his second back surgery in under a year, he is slated to be out of commission for up to six months while he recovers. Though Eifert is a free agent after this season, he first has to get healthy as the idea of retirement isn't out of the equation at this time. When he plays, the Notre Dame alum has been as productive as you could hope, accumulating 20 touchdowns in five limited seasons. However, various injuries have significantly impacted his value, especially on the fantasy end of things.

Eifert has been dealing with this latest bout of back issues for the past several weeks and was unable to play in recent games against Green Bay and Cleveland as a result. Though he hasn't officially been declared out for Sunday's matchup against the visiting Buffalo Bills, things aren't looking good at the moment.
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (back) missed practice on Wednesday. Eifert has been dealing with the back injury over the past few weeks and on top of practices, he was also unable to suit up for the team's recent matchups against Green Bay and Cleveland in Weeks 3 and 4. Though Eifert hasn't technically lost his starting job, tight end Tyler Kroft may end up dethroning him from that role if things keep going the way they are going. Kroft had six receptions and two touchdowns last Sunday in the win over the Browns. If we get a few more performances even close to that from Kroft, things may start to get a little interesting in Cincy.
