News: Eifert (elbow) is one of a few tight ends on the Bengals' current roster, which could change following next week's NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Eifert, who played merely eight snaps last season due to elbow and shoulder complications, is currently the unquestioned starting tight end on the Bengals' roster. However, given his trouble staying healthy, as well as little depth behind him, Cincinnati is expected to target tight ends sometime in the upcoming NFL Draft. Still, with long-time Bengal Jermaine Gresham unlikely to be re-signed, it appears Eifert will assume vastly increased responsibilities this season, should he keep a clean bill of health.
