Jets sign TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Austin Seferian-Jenkins is headed to New York.

The tight end was claimed by the Jets after being waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

ESPN first reported the claim.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bucs released Seferian-Jenkins following an arrest Friday morning on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI and a driver's license violation. The Jets have't have a reception from a TE this year, the story said, with the position featuring Kellen Davis and Brandon Bostick as of now. ASJ will need some time to learn the offense but obviously has a chance to have an impact with the Jets at some point.

Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 3. Martin is expected to miss the next three weeks with a hamstring injury, so Sims should step into a 15- to 18-touch role as the team’s primary back. The Rams have been so-so against the run this year, yielding three rushing touchdowns to the 49ers in Week 1.

Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins arrested for DUI

Friday, September 23, 2016, 10:04am

Tampa Bay Times - [Full Article]

Two days before the Bucs' home opener, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested early Friday morning and remains in jail, charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence.

Seferian-Jenkins was stopped by the Florida Highway Patrol at 3:42 a.m. Friday and was booked at the Orient Road Jail at 6 a.m., charged with DUI. He remained in jail at 9:30 Friday morning. He also faces a misdemeanor charge of violating a court-ordered Ignition Interlock Device restriction from a previous arrest for DUI in Washington in 2013.

According to the FHP, Seferian-Jenkins was driving at 75-80 mph in a 55 mph zone as he entered southbound I-275 near State Road 60. He made an improper lane change, cutting off an FHP trooper and "weaving back and forth."

Fantasy Impact:

It remains to be seen how the Buccaneers handle this situation, but this is the latest in a series of missteps by the talented yet boneheaded tight end. Cameron Brate would likely handle the bulk of the snaps if Seferian-Jenkins does not play on Sunday.
