Summary

Eifert's medical history is troubling, but when he's healthy, he remains one of the best red zone weapons in the NFL (and perhaps the best with the retirement of Rob Gronkowski). Last season was another lost year for Eifert. After four games, he suffered a gruesome ankle injury that ended his season. Heading into 2019, the team wants Eifert to be involved, but they're not committing to him long-term. He was signed to a one-year "prove-it" deal, and it's likely that if 2019 is another injury marred season, he'll have to start sending his resume to other teams. Eifert is on track for the season, but his health situation is always one to monitor. (August 9)
