Tyler Eifert

Eifert’s career in stripes may always have an asterisk next to it because of all the injuries he suffered. However, when healthy, his impact on the Bengals offense was undeniable. The mismatches he created in the passing game made the offensive attack a nightmare for opposing defenses to cover.

His best season came in 2015, when he hauled in 13 touchdowns, playing a major role in leading the Bengals to a 12-4 record and an AFC North title.

Now in Jacksonville, he looks to find a bigger role with the Jaguars than he got under Zac Taylor’s new coaching regime.

Jermaine Gresham

Gresham has earned somewhat of a bad reputation among the Bengals faithful for dropped passes and inconsistencies. Still, he was always a solid receiving option and opened the playbook up for Cincinnati’s offensive coordinators.

In 2012 especially, he proved himself to be a great target, reeling in over 700 yards receiving and 5 touchdowns. While he didn’t have the type of career that you would expect from a first-round pick, he had some good campaigns, even earning two Pro Bowl selections.
