Reports out of Cincinnati are that the Bengals sign Tyler Eifert to a rookie deal… if they haven’t already. Cincinnati.com has reported that the contract will be for four years and worth around $8.256 million. The signing will lock up the last of the Bengals’ 10 draft picks from the 2013 NFL Draft.
Eifert was the Bengals’ first pick in the Draft and the 21st overall. He holds Notre Dame’s record for passes caught by a tight end and, based on his off season work so far, is expected to make an immediate contribution to the team.
