CINCINNATI (AP) — Tyler Eifert lined up here, there and just about everywhere during his first practice with the Cincinnati Bengals. Felt like old times.

The Bengals got started on their new tight end-heavy passing game Friday at the start of a weekend rookie minicamp. A lot of the focus was on Eifert, chosen in the first round to give quarterback Andy Dalton another target.

Eifert lined up in a lot of different spots at Notre Dame. Judging by the first day of practice in Cincinnati, he's going to be doing the same thing as a pro.

With Dalton watching from the sideline, Eifert made a nice one-hand catch during the morning workout. Eifert said Cincinnati's offense reminds him of what he did at Notre Dame.
