Impending free agent TE Austin Sefarian-Jenkins says he’s hoping to return to the Jets next year and continue his career in New York.
“I got my life going in the right direction in this city,” Seferian-Jenkins said, via Connor Hughes of NJ.com. “It’s the city that gave me an opportunity when I was down and out. It’s a place I feel like I fit in, I belong. I would love to be here a long time.”
The Jets took a chance on Sefarian-Jenkins when they claimed him off of waivers, despite the fact that the Buccaneers had cut him loose following a DUI arrest.
Sefarian-Jenkins is hoping that he’s shown them enough in his one year in New York for the Jets to commit to him long-term.
“Hopefully I’ve shown them enough this year to have them invest in me in the long term,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “Hopefully I can keep repaying them. I want to keep developing, and developing for them, into one of the best in the game.”
