NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes reports Austin Seferian-Jenkins "has dominated" at Jets camp.
Seferian-Jenkins was widely considered the best offensive player on the team in spring practices, and that has carried over into training camp with the pads on. He's been winning all of his one-on-ones and looks like a "legitimate offensive weapon" for a Jets squad that needs them. Though suspended for the first two games, ASJ has a real chance to lead this offense in targets the final 14 weeks. Aug 9 - 9:24 AM

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets "like what they've seen" out of Austin Seferian-Jenkins this offseason.

The tight end also received praise from NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes, who said ASJ was the "most impressive player on the field" at OTAs. Cimini notes the Jets plan to lean on tight ends more under new OC John Morton, especially following the release of Eric Decker, and Seferian-Jenkins is the best bet to earn those targets once he returns from his two-game suspension. Undrafted in most leagues, Seferian-Jenkins is not a terrible late-round dart throw in best ball formats.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes pegged Austin Seferian-Jenkins as the "most impressive player on the field" at Jets OTAs.

To be frank, ASJ doesn't have much competition in the form of offensive talent among his teammates, but this is still great to hear. "He caught everything in sight," Hughes added. Seferian-Jenkins has hit the reset button on his life this offseason, quitting drinking and dropping 25 pounds in the process. One of the more established players on a Jets offense filled with inexperience, ASJ has a chance at real contributions in 2017 after he serves a two-game ban.

Suspended Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins revealed he's been clean and sober for 129 days.

ASJ has battled a not-so-secret drinking problem since college. He quit drinking on January 21 and attended outpatient rehab four times a week. "Knowing you need help and you don't go get it, that's the worst thing," he said. "I was scared to get help. I was scared and embarrassed to tell people I have a problem." Seferian-Jenkins has dropped 20-something pounds and says he's undergone a "transformation." He's apparently been lighting up OTAs.

Suspended Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins dropped 25 pounds this offseason.

After his weight reached the 280s last season, ASJ is down to 260. His offseason regimen included hot pilates and working out up to three times a day with a Las Vegas fitness expert. ASJ's career bottomed out last year after his September DUI arrest and subsequent release from Tampa Bay, but it looks like he's recommitted heading into his contract year. He'll begin the season serving a two-game ban.

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.

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.
Jan 1 - 11:46 AM

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.

He'll finish the afternoon with one catch for 17 yards. Seferian-Jenklns dropped a would-be touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick in the second quarter after beating Patrick Chung in coverage. Brandon Bostick has entered the game at tight end for New York.

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.

Seferian-Jenkins did very little this week in practice and is at least another week away. In the interest of both ourselves and readers combing through blurbs upon blurbs, effective immediately we are implementing a policy that no future blurbs will be written about ASJ until he does something legitimately noteworthy.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) was officially "DNP" on Thursday.

ASJ had been previously reported as "limited." He'll miss his third straight game against the Browns.
Thu, Oct 27, 2016 05:03:00 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) returned to practice Thursday.

Seferian-Jenkins has missed the last two games with an ankle injury. He will likely be limited, but this practice at least gives him a shot to play. He will not be worth streaming even in a great matchup with the Browns.
Thu, Oct 27, 2016 11:37:00 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Ravens.

The Jets will continue to roll four-wide sets with Brandon Marshall, Quincy Enunwa, Charone Peake, and Robby Anderson. ASJ remains week to week.
