Jaguars TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins posted a Tweet Thursday implying the team has declined his option for the 2019 season.
Appreciate the time Jax! It wasn’t what we wanted! But I’m happy y’all supported me and my teammates! Next chapter

The Jaguars had a $500,000 team option for the 2019 season to pick up in the coming months. However, given their cap situation and the fact that they only got five games out of Seferian-Jenkins last year, it’s not all that surprising that they could be moving on from him.
Seferian-Jenkins, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2014. The Buccaneers elected to move on from Seferian-Jenkins a few years ago after he was arrested for driving under the influence and he was later claimed off of waivers from the Jets.
Seferian-Jenkins played out the final year of his four-year, $5.254 million contract before agreeing to a two-year, $10 million contract that included $4 million guaranteed with the Jaguars last year.
In 2018, Seferian-Jenkins appeared in five games for the Jaguars and caught 11 passes for 90 yards receiving and one touchdown.
