Patriots Sign TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins To One-Year Deal

According to Field Yates, the Patriots have signed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Seferian-Jenkins signed a one-year, minimum deal with the Patriots over the Seahawks, per Ian Rapoport, and fills a huge void at tight end for New England. 

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 by 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.

Jacksonville declined Seferian-Jenkins’ option for 2019, making him an unrestricted free agent. 

In 2018, Seferian-Jenkins appeared in five games for the Jaguars and caught 11 passes for 90 yards receiving and one touchdown.

We had him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
