Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins getting first-team reps

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is now splitting reps with Cameron Brate when the first-team offense is on the field.

Seferian-Jenkins, who called getting kicked out of practice “a wake-up call,” had five catches for 46 yards in two preseason outings and has earned good reviews for his blocking. More of the same over the rest of the preseason will likely lead to more than a half-share of the work come the regular season.

Fantasy Impact: 

When the Buccaneers unveiled their first depth chart of the season, Brate was ahead of Seferian-Jenkins at tight end. That development came after Seferian-Jenkins was kicked out of an OTA practice by coach Dirk Koetter for not knowing what he was doing, the story said. Seferian-Jenkins certainly has the talent and proved it in very limited time last year.
