According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, free agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins recently turned down a two-year, $8 million offer from the Jets.
Per Vacchiano, the offer was "short on guarantees." Despite this, Vacchiano expects the two sides to eventually "talk again and work something out." Seferian-Jenkins set career-highs in catches (50) and receiving yards (357) this past season and is still just 25. A reunion makes sense for both sides. Feb 18 - 12:43 PM

ESPN New York confirms the Jets are working to re-sign free agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Seferian-Jenkins recently changed agents, so there hasn't been much progress in contract talks. After a strong start, ASJ faded down the stretch last year but 2017 was still a step forward for him. The Jets should try to keep Seferian-Jenkins on a short-term deal.
Feb 6 - 10:11 AM

Impending free agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins said he has had "some contract talks" with the Jets.

Those talks are on hold right now, however, as Seferian-Jenkins changes agents. ASJ was on the wrong end of several controversial touchdown calls, and he averaged a pedestrian 7.1 yards on 50 catches across 13 games. Still, 2017 represented a step in the right direction for a player who has struggled with off-field issues. Only 25, he should get some interest on the open market as an upside signing.

Jets declared TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (foot), DL Muhammad Wilkerson, CB Rashard Robinson, LB Freddie Bishop, OL Brandon Shell, WR Lucky Whitehead and DL Deon Simon inactive for Sunday's Week 17 game versus the Patriots.

The biggest story surrounding Seferian-Jenkins this season was that he was able to overcome his off-field transgressions. On the field, Seferian-Jenkins turned 74 targets into 50 receptions for 357 yards and three touchdowns. ASJ specifically had a hard time finding a place in the offensive system designed by offensive coordinator John Morton to put him in favorable situations for production. ASJ managed to hit 50-yards receiving in just one of 14 games played while averaging a pedestrian 7.1 yards per reception, which ranked 66th out of 68 tight ends with double-digit receptions on the season. The 25-year old tight end will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and look to use his 2017 season as a stepping stone as getting his career back on track.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ribs, foot) is doubtful for Week 17 against the Patriots.

ASJ's season will likely end with 50 catches for 357 yards and three scores. He also had multiple touchdowns taken off the board due to unusual circumstances. ASJ is scheduled to be a free agent.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ribs) did not practice Thursday.

He has now missed the first two practices of the week, making it unlikely he suits up for the season finale. He will not be a fantasy option even if he plays.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ribs. foot) did not practice Wednesday.

They're new issues for ASJ, which obviously could end his season one week early. He's had a career year, seeing 71 targets, turning them into 50 catches for 357 yards and three scores, but is averaging a fullback-esque 7.1 yards per catch. He has one game of 28-plus yards since Week 6.
Wed, Dec 27, 2017 03:34:00 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 4-of-8 passes for 21 yards in Week 16 against the Chargers.

Seferian-Jenkins hasn't been much of a factor over the last month and continued to see his role decline. The eight targets were his most since Week 10, but the Jets offense has struggled for red-zone chances with Bryce Petty starting. Seferian-Jenkins won't be more than a touchdown-depdent option for Week 17.
Sun, Dec 24, 2017 04:59:00 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins hauled in both of his targets for 13 yards in the Jets' Week 15 loss to the Saints.

Seferian-Jenkins converted a third-down on the opening drive with a nine-yard grab and drew a pass interference on the next series, but that was it for the quickly fading tight end until he tacked on a catch in garbage time. He did draw another DPI near the end zone to set up a late score, but ASJ has now failed to top 15 yards in each of his last three games. He will not be a starting option next week against the Chargers.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins came down with one catch for one yard on four targets Sunday in the Jets’ Week 14 loss to the Broncos.

ASJ was a trendy streamer at the start of the year but we’re way past that now as the tight end has managed just three catches for eight yards over his last two games and hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 7. With Josh McCown on the shelf, we wouldn’t go anywhere near him next week against New Orleans.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 08:32:00 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins compiled two catches for seven yards on three targets Sunday in the Jets’ Week 13 win over the Chiefs.

He didn’t do anything of note as the Jets’ passing game mostly ran through Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse. ASJ has now been held under 30 yards in five of his last six games and hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 7. Even against a Denver defense that bleeds yards to tight ends, he won’t be a recommended streamer in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 06:04:00 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins corralled two-of-seven targets for 27 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 12 loss to the Panthers.

Seferian-Jenkins may not sleep well tonight. ASJ had his paws on what should have been a 13-yard touchdown in the first quarter, but let it fall through his fingertips. That was his first drop of the season. Later it appeared Seferian-Jenkins had scored a one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter but replay showed that he may have bobbled it, which resulted in the play being overturned. It’s the second time this year ASJ has been stripped of a touchdown on review following a similar play versus the Patriots in Week 6. He’s now been held under 30 yards in five of his last six games and hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 7. Seferian-Jenkins will try to put Sunday’s disappointment behind him next week against Kansas City.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 6-of-9 targets for 67 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bucs.

This will be good enough to make ASJ a top-12 tight end for the week in most scoring formats. Seferian-Jenkins' touchdown catches have slowed way down, but he remains a huge part of the Jets' offense on a weekly basis. He's worth holding in 12-team leagues through New York's Week 11 bye, although Week 12 opponent Carolina has played shutdown tight end defense all season.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 05:07:00 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 2-of-2 targets for 20 yards in the Jets' Week 9 win over the Bills.

ASJ's least-productive game of the year — by far — would have looked a lot different if not for a horrible penalty call in the second quarter. Working against tight coverage, ASJ got free for a 20-yard touchdown grab in the end zone, but was called for a phantom pushoff by Jerome Boger's penalty-happy crew. ASJ has now been held below 30 yards in three straight games, and 3-of-4. He's catching passes, but averaging just 6.69 yards per grab, severely limiting his upside despite his nice floor.
Fri, Nov 3, 2017 12:03:00 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 5-of-5 targets for 28 yards in the Jets' Week 8 loss to the Falcons.

Seferian-Jenkins got vultured by backup tight end Eric Tomlinson for an early-game touchdown, ending ASJ's scoring streak at three games. Seferian-Jenkins should get back on track in Week 9 against a Bills defense that got beaten up by Bucs tight ends in Week 7 and Raiders tight ends in Week 8.
