Seferian-Jenkins has been suspended two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
The suspension stems from a DUI arrest in September, which Seferian-Jenkins agreed to a plea deal for at the Hillsborough (Fla.) County Court in mid-February. He's fully expected to take part in the entirety of the preseason, but will then miss the first two games of the season, which means he'll have to forfeit a small portion of his $1.1 million contract. The Jets don't have a proven tight end behind Seferian-Jenkins, so they could look to the free agent market in hopes of adding some extra help at some point prior to training camp.
Seferian-Jenkins (hamstring) agreed to a plea deal Wednesday in the Hillsborough (Fla.) County Court for his DUI arrest last September, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
The incident precipitated Seferian-Jenkins' release from the Buccaneers, with whom he spent the first two seasons of his career. Shortly after he was jettisoned, the TE-needy Jets claimed him off waivers, and while he led his positional group across the board, he accounted for just 10 catches (on 17 targets) for 110 yards across seven games due to a couple of injuries. Ultimately, he missed the season finale with a hamstring issue, which shouldn't hinder his ability to participate in the offseason program. Owed $1.1 million in 2017, Seferian-Jenkins could lose a portion of his salary if the league opts to punish him for a second DUI offense.
Seferian-Jenkins (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt with the Bills.
Seferian-Jenkins exited last Saturday's loss to the Patriots early in the contest after aggravating a hamstring injury. His season will now end with 13 receptions for 154 yards and one touchdown through nine games with the Jets and Buccaneers. Look for Eric Tomlinson to be the No. 2 tight end on Sunday behind starter Brandon Bostick.
Seferian-Jenkins (hamstring) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.
Seferian-Jenkins injured his hamstring last week against the Patriots. He's uncertain to be ready in time for Sunday's season finale against the Bills.
Sefarian-Jenkins (hamstring) will not return to Saturday's game against the Patriots.
The tight end hauled in one reception for 17 yards Saturday before exiting the contest. An update on his status should be made available once the
