NFL suspended Austin Seferian-Jenkins two games for violating the substance abuse policy.
The suspension stems from his September DUI. Seferian-Jenkins can participate in OTAs/preseason, but will miss the first two weeks. It shouldn't impact his roster spot, as he won't count against the Opening Day 53. The Jets have just Braedon Bowman, Eric Tomlinson and Jason Vander Laan behind ASJ. Mar 15 - 5:00 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins agreed to a plea deal in his DUI case which will keep him out of jail.

Seferian-Jenkins was charged with DUI last September, but he pleaded down to a reckless driving charge. He was sentenced to one year of probation, 50 hours of community service, and DUI school. He will also pay a $500 fine. Despite escaping jail time, Seferian-Jenkins is likely facing a two-game suspension.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (hamstring) is inactive for Week 17 against the Bills.

ASJ was New York’s most productive tight end this year, which isn’t a particularly high bar to clear. Seferian-Jenkins is a huge red-zone target but so far injuries and off-field issues have prevented him from reaching his full potential. Entering a contract year, Seferian-Jenkins will have plenty to prove in 2017.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins thinks he can "absolutely" be the answer at tight end for the Jets.

Cut by the Bucs two weeks into the season after a tumultuous training camp and limited to just seven appearances with the Jets because of injuries among other things, Seferian-Jenkins has nowhere to go but up. "It has been a challenging year," Seferian-Jenkins stated the obvious. "I'm excited for the opportunity next year. I want to come back and be a force to be reckoned with." The Jets have gotten 17 catches from their tight ends this season after getting just eight from the unit last year. Seferian-Jenkins has the talent to turn that trend around, but he has never put together a long stretch of consistent production in the pros. His first order of business this offseason will be figuring out how to stay healthy.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins left Saturday's Week 16 game against the Patriots with a hamstring injury and will not return.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 3-of-3 targets for 35 yards in the Jets' Week 14 win over the 49ers.

Seferian-Jenkins isn't putting up big numbers, but he has become a legitimate factor in the Jets' offense the past two weeks with Bryce Petty under center. ASJ is only 24 years old and has always possessed elite NFL talent. He will be worth monitoring in Dynasty leagues down the stretch, and rostering in deep ones.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) is doubtful for Week 8 against the Browns.
