The Bucs reportedly believe a healthy Austin Seferian-Jenkins can produce 60 or more catches.
Seferian-Jenkins hobbled his way to just 21 catches as a rookie, but the Bucs aren't worried. They added nothing to their tight end room in free agency and new OC Dirk Koetter has a history of maximizing talent at the position. Seferian-Jenkins should be running free down the middle of the field a ton with Mike Evans/Vincent Jackson soaking up attention, and is a massive red-zone target at 6'5/262. ASJ is a sneaky breakout candidate. Apr 2 - 10:59 AM

Pewter Report's Scott Reynolds expects second-year TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins to be a "featured weapon" in the Bucs offense.

New Bucs OC Dirk Koetter has traditionally been successful utilizing tight ends. Mercedes Lewis had his best season as a pro under Koetter in Jacksonville, and Koetter fed the ball to Tony Gonzalez in Atlanta. Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans will soak up their share of targets outside, but Seferian-Jenkins has the frame and athleticism to dominate over the middle. With the tight end position as weak as ever, second-year players like Seferian-Jenkins and Lions TE Eric Ebron could easily be top-ten options in 2015.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) is back at 100 percent.

ASJ missed the final three games of the season, spending the final two on injured reserve. "It’s feeling awesome — so much better since the end of the season," ASJ said. "By being put on (injured reserve) I got a chance to rest, so it’s feeling great again." Already singled out for praise by new OC Dirk Koetter, ASJ will be on the radar as a TE1 breakout candidate in 2015.
Feb 5 - 3:05 PM

New Bucs OC Dirk Koetter mentioned Austin Seferian-Jenkins when discussing the talent he now has on offense.

It would have been easy heap praise on Mike Evans/Vincent Jackson and gloss over a tight end who posted a meager 21-221-2 rookie line. But Koetter, who coached Tony Gonzalez in Atlanta for two seasons, is well aware of the skill set Seferian-Jenkins possesses. This is a 6'5/262 mountain of a man with 4.56 speed, giving the next Bucs' quarterback (likely Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota) a massive catch radius. ASJ is a candidate to take a big step forward as a NFL sophomore.

Bucs placed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins on injured reserve with a back injury, ending his season.

ASJ had been sidelined since Week 12. It's a disappointing end to a disappointing rookie season, but ASJ's injury is not considered serious. He was just running out of time to return with only two games left. ASJ caught 21 passes for 221 yards and two scores across nine games, committing myriad mental errors along the way. He remains an intriguing long-term prospect, however, and is a definite hold in dynasty formats. A mountainous 6-foot-6, 262 pounds with 4.56 speed, ASJ doesn't turn 23 until September.

Sun, Nov 30, 2014 11:39:00 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) is listed as questionable for Week 13.

With Brandon Myers (calf) and Luke Stocker (concussion) also questionable, the Bucs signed TEs D.J. Williams and Cameron Brate. Seferian-Jenkins was limited to 20 snaps due to his back injury last week and won't be more than a touchdown-dependent TE2 if he plays against the Bengals.
