CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
The Bengals have signed TE Tyler Eifert of Notre Dame, their first-round selection (21st overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Eifert's agreement completes the list 10 Bengals draftee signings for the upcoming season.
"We've said all along that we expected Tyler's deal to get done in good time, but it's great to now have all our signings complete," said head coach Marvin Lewis. "All 10 guys can help us by getting off to fast starts, and we are looking for Tyler to lead that. He's shown us everything we wanted to see in our offseason work."
Eifert (6-6, 250) displayed rare receiving skills during his Notre Dame career. In a program known for great players at the position, he set an Irish career record for catches by a TE (140). He gained 1840 receiving yards and scored 11 TDs. Last season, he was widely rated among the nation's elite receivers at any position for ability to time jumps and win contested balls.
He sealed his worth as a first-round draft pick by showing the strength and aggressiveness to handle base-offense blocking duties at the NFL level.
In 2012, Eifert won the John Mackey Award, the "Heisman" for tight ends. He was a team captain of Notre Dame's BCS Championship game entry, and he was named the team's Offensive MVP.
