The Bengals announced that they have signed veteran TE Bo Scaife on Friday. According to Pro Football Talk, the deal is for one year at $1 million.

Scaife, an unrestricted free agent who averaged 41.9 catches and 397.1 yards per season for Tennessee from 2005-10, is entering his seventh NFL season. He was designated by the Titans as their franchise player in both 2009 and ’10.

The 6-3, 249-pound Scaife played in 14 games with 13 starts last season, catching 36 passes for 318 yards and four touchdowns,

He will join second-year TEs Jermaine Gresham and Chase Coffman in the Bengals' offense.

The way we see it

In addition to providing another target for either Andy Dalton or Bruce Gradkowski, Scaife also brings a veteran presence to a very young offense.
