With the 21st pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select Tight End Tyler Eifert out of Notre Dame. Add another passing target for Bengals QB Dawson, and now the Bengals are really going to have to be taken seriously. He was Notre Dame’s No. 1 offensive weapon in 2012, lining up out wide as a WR or in-line as a traditional TE, and was the type of target defensive coordinators had to game plan against. Eifert is a fluid pass-catcher with vacuum hands and the hand/eye coordination to make tough catches and although he doesn’t create a lot of space, he secures grabs in traffic, showing outstanding tracking and high-pointing ability. As a sophomore in 2010 he entered the season as a backup to Kyle Rudolph, but took over as the starter after Rudolph suffered a season ending injury.  He finished the season with 27 receptions for 352 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games. In his junior season, he took over the starting position. As a starter, Eifert had 63 receptions for 803 y...

Bengals re-sign top tackle Andre Smith

CINCINNATI -- The last time Andre Smith was involved in contract negotiations with the Bengals the scenario played out in a weekly TV drama.

Bengals TE Eifert picks Ochocinco's No. 85

Tyler Eifert's first decision in Cincinnati is getting a little notice. He'll be wearing Ochocinco's old number. By design, no less. Eifert wore No. 80 at Notre Dame, where he developed into one of the nation's best tight ends. The Bengals got him with the 21st overall pick on Thursday night even though they didn't have a glaring need for another tight end ...

The Bengals Re-Sign Right Tackle Andre Smith

NFL News: Andre Smith is one of the better tackles in the game and went looking for big money but couldn’t find a suitor. I believe part of the problem for Smith was this draft class. It was so deep with offensive linemen that not many teams could justify spending top dollar on him. So he has reluctantly re-signed with the Bengals on a 3-year deal worth 18 million dollars. Not...

Cincinnati Bengals Select Zach Eifert in First Round

1.21 Cincinnati Bengals Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame, (6-6, 251) In perhaps a surprising move by the Bengals, they select Eifert with their first round pick in the 2013 draft. The Bengals already have Jermaine Gresham, so they’re expected to turn to many two tight end sets, which could work very well with the skill set of Andy Dalton. Eifert is a tight end that can step in right...

Bengals add offensive weapon in Eifert

CINCINNATI Tight end wasnt a position of need for the Bengals heading into the first round of the NFL Draft but drafting Tyler Eifert was a no-brainer when the Notre Dame product was still available at pick No. 21 Thursday night. The Bengals added to their offensive arsenal by taking Eifert, a mismatch-in-the-making at 6-foot-5, 250 pounds. New England has made the NFL take notice...

If the Steelers Choose Offense at 17, I Like Eifert

I have struggled with this decision plain and simple. I like Keenan Allen. I like DeAndre Hopkins. I like a lot of guys but the question keeps coming back to me. Which potential pick from the offensive side of the ball is truly a first round pick in our position? In my decision-making process, I want it to be known that my most favorite choice at pick number 17 is to trade down....
