JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Oft-injured tight end Tyler Eifert and the Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to a two-year contract in free agency.
Eifert played in 16 games last year for the first time in his seven NFL seasons, all with Cincinnati.
He caught 43 passes for 436 yards and three touchdowns. He has 185 receptions for 2,152 yards and 24 touchdowns.
His best year came in 2015, when he had 52 catches for 615 yards and 13 scores. But he's missed more games (34) than he's played (30) since.
Nonetheless, he could provide a big upgrade for Jacksonville.
