The Jacksonville Jaguars have declined the option for tight end Tyler Eifert. He is now a free agent.
By declining his option, the Jaguars have created $5.25 million in cap space.
He was mainly used as a backup in his first season in Jacksonville. Eifert started just four games.
Since had his option declined now, he does not have to wait until the new league year on March 17th, like the other free agents, to sign with a new team. He can sign with a new team as soon as an agreement can be reached.
The problem with Eifert is that he battled injuries throughout his career. However, in the past two seasons; he has missed just one game.
He played in 31 of the 32 games in 2019 and 2020.
In his first season with the Jaguars, he appeared in 15 games. He had 36 receptions for 349 yards and two touchdowns.
The 30-year-old Indiana native will be looking for his third team in three seasons. He played seven seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals before signing with the Jaguars.
In his career, Eifert has appeared in 74 games, including 41 starts. He has had 221 receptions for 2,501 yards and 26 touchdowns.
He had half of his touchdowns during one season. During the 2015 season, he had a career-high 13 touchdown receptions.
