Re-signs with Cincinnati

Wilcox signed a one-year deal with the Bengals on Friday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Wilcox appeared in 15 games for the Bengals last year, but the majority of his snaps came on special teams. Across 81 offensive snaps, the 25-year-old tight end caught three of five targets for 16 yards. He figures to garner a similar role in 2022, as Cincinnati's tight end room remains essentially the same after swapping C.J. Uzomah -- who signed with the Jets this offseason -- for Hayden Hurst.

Makes three grabs in 2021

Wilcox secured three of five targets for 16 yards across 15 appearances in 2021.

Analysis: Wilcox appeared in this first NFL action of his career for Cincinnati in 2021, and he's scheduled to become an exclusive rights free agent this offseason. The Bengals could opt to keep Wilcox around and allow him to continue developing in the same system.
