Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah seizing his opportunity heading into contract season

Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah is entering his fourth NFL season, and it’s also his contract year.

This is his last season to make an impression on the Bengals or impress another team, and he is coming off a surprisingly bad season. In 2016, Uzomah recorded 25 catches for 234 yards and a touchdown in six games before getting injured.

A lot of that came when fellow tight end Tyler Eifert was recovering from an injury, so it was surprising that last season with Uzomah only ended up with 10 catches for 92 yards and a touchdown when Eifert missed 14 games.
