Jaguars sign Austin Seferian-Jenkins

New England Patriots v New York Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - OCTOBER 15: Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins #88 of the New York Jets is seen after what was originally called a touchdown against strong safety Duron Harmon #30 and cornerback Malcolm Butler #21 of the New England Patriots during the fourth quarter of their game at MetLife Stadium on October 15, 2017 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

For the second time in less than 24 hours, the Jaguars have agreed to terms with a free agent tight end.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins will sign with the Jaguars, according to multiple reports. His signing comes after the Jaguars also acquired Niles Paul.

Early in his career with the Buccaneers, Seferian-Jenkins was largely unproductive and disappointing, but last year with the Jets he had the best season of his career, catching 50 passes for 357 yards and three touchdowns (and losing a couple other touchdowns on highly questionable replay reviews).

The Jaguars have made a concerted effort to improve their offense this offseason, with Paul and Seferian-Jenkins joining guard Andrew Norwell and receiver Donte Moncrief. Last year the Jaguars rode an excellent defense to the AFC Championship Game. This year they’ll try to ride a more balanced team to the Super Bowl.
