Jaguars' Tyler Eifert: Officially signs with Jacksonville

Eifert agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Jaguars on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Eifert was rumored to be in talks with the Jaguars earlier in the day, and the two sides did in fact come to an agreement. The veteran will reunite with his former offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, who was on the staff in Cincinnati from 2011-13. A part-time role limited Eifert's production to a 43-436-3 line on 63 targets last season, but the reduced snaps at least kept him healthy for a full 16-game schedule for the first time in his career. With fellow tight ends James O'Shaughnessy (knee) and Josh Oliver (back) both coming off season-ending injuries, Eifert could certainly be in the mix for a starting role in 2020.
