Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert, who signed with Jacksonville last year after seven seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, is expected to become a free agent after his team option is declined, according to a report Monday night via Twitter from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Eifert, 30, had 36 catches for 349 yards with two touchdowns last season in 15 games for the Jaguars.
Last May, Eifert had to interrupt a Zoom call to chase his dogs when they escaped his yard.
Last March, Eifert thanked the Bengals - as well as the city of Cincinnati and Bengals fans - for his time in Cincinnati before becoming an unrestricted free agent.
A first-round pick of the Bengals in the 2013 draft, Eifert had 185 receptions for 2,152 yards with 24 TDs in 59 games over seven seasons in Cincinnati.
Shortly after his recovery from back surgery, Eifert broke his ankle during a 2018 game against the Falcons in Atlanta. He played in all 16 games for the Bengals in 2019 - for the first time in his career - finishing with 43 catches for 436 yards with three touchdowns.
