If you were the Bengals, would you bring back Tyler Eifert in 2019?

Recommended Posts

Rams wanted Eifert last year. https://theramswire.usatoday.com/2018/03/15/nfl-los-angeles-rams-cincinnati-bengals-tyler-eifert-contract-free-agency/

 

This is a resounding yes from me. Re-sign him and Uzomah and then draft one in what is a very deep TE draft. Rest of group Schreck, Franks, Carter, Vollert, Bohringer, fight for spots.

If we don't resign him, I'm sure he'll go to the Pats.

Nahh, they only get guys who missed games for smoking weed, not due to injury.

Too bad they didn't get him.   Might have saved us the hole at TE.

Yeah, if he hadn't been there, none of those other TE's would have gotten hurt, Amirite?

We would've had one more TE on our roster. Maybe even one that hasn't been injured 4 years in a row?  An unsupervised toddler in a steel mill has better odds of staying healthy than Tyler Eifert.

The simple answer:  no.

 

I was so unsurprised by his latest "freak" injury against the Falcons that I didn't even react to it.  "Yep, that's about right."  I don't want a player playing a major role in the way Taylor and co. design this offense if he isn't going to be on the field to execute it.  He's great when he can play, but we've been saying that since 2015 (the last time he played).

Awesome ladder drill, nothing broke so that's good.

Sign Tyler to league minimum deal with a shit ton of incentives, that's the only way I'd be interested in having him back.

Would everyone be happy with just giving him a million dollars but not signing him to a contract or anything? He still gets paid by the Bengals so that's reason enough to keep talking about him, but also has the benefit of not wasting a roster spot that could go to a TE that is actually able to play football.

I was nervous watching that.. I thought he was going to break his leg at the end or something similar.

Socialism has no place in the football threads.  Drop and give me 20!

I'd re-sign Eifert, Kroft and Uzomah. I have zero issue with these three being the Bengals TEs. And, why do we give a shit what they pay Eifert? The Bengals ended the season with more than $8 million in salary cap room in 2018 and that was after extending Atkins and Dunlap.

I mean, the thing that made Eifert so iffy last year wasn't what he ended up missing time with. Freak injury and if he's recovered from the leg break, his shoulder and back issues should still be fine.  We saw last year that he was beyond the back issues. I guess I would not mind him back at the right price.

Exactly!  My concern last year was his back, and he seemed to have few if any side effects from that.   The ankle is a freak injury, we’ve seen plenty of players come back from that.

Can u give a player an end of season roster bonus instead of the beginning?

 

I mean give Tyler $1 million to start the season and another $4 million if he completes the season without getting hurt.

How many freak injuries does he need to have every time he steps on the field before we admit they're not actually freakish and in fact completely predictable?  Some of you act like he's the last TE on Earth or something.  Draft another one and move the hell on already.  Yeesh.

You actually can if the player agrees to it. It's called a completion bonus. Agents hate those though as they shift the injury risk to the player. The team could also just structure it as he gets veteran base pay and a workout bonus, then 250K per game he's on the 46 man active roster.
