Irv Smith signs one-year deal with Bengals

There are still no details of the deal as of yet, but Irv Smith has been contacted about his signing, saying, "It's a great organization. Great coaching staff. (Head coach) Zac Taylor was very adamant about me coming to the team knowing what I can do to help the offense."

Fantasy Impact: 

Prior to the signing, Devin Asiasi was the only tight end under contract with a feasible amount of NFL playing time. Smith, who doesn't turn 25 until the week of the preseason opener, had a career-high 36 catches as a rookie before injuries wiped out all of 2021 (torn meniscus) and half of 2022 (ankle). With Burrow hooking up C.J. Uzomah to career-highs in 2021 and Hayden Hurst to the second 50-catch season of his career in 2022, he thinks he's in the right place at the right time.

Smith has a chance to be a solid TE2 in fantasy, and we'll have to wait and see if the team still aims for the position during the NFL Draft.
