Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert said Tuesday he's taking more notes than usual as he gets up to speed with coach Zac Taylor's offense.
And he's essentially participating full-go during offseason workouts ahead of next week's OTA practice and next month's mandatory minicamp.
"I'm doing pretty much everything," said Eifert, who underwent surgery in October to repair a gruesome broken ankle. "There's a couple things here and there but for the most part it's all doing everything with the guys."
Eifert signed a one-year contract this offseason. If healthy, he should be the best pass-catching option in a position unit that includes balanced veteran C.J. Uzomah and second-round draft pick Drew Sample.
Eifert said his goals include arriving at July training camp healthy and committing Taylor's offense to memory.
"There's a lot of detail, a lot of little things that make a difference," Eifert said. "Just making sure you have those drilled in your head so you don't have to think about them and can go out there and play fast."
