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.
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.
