In need of tight end help, the New England Patriots and free agent Austin Seferian-Jenkins have reached a contract agreement.
‘I’m ready to work!’
Though there hasn’t been an official statement from the Patriots, Seferian-Jenkins retweeted the NFL’s official account with the report of his signing, and apparently used his first-ever Instagram post to announce the news too:
“Thank You [Patriots] I’m ready to go to work! #Year6,” Seferian-Jenkins wrote.
Experienced but oft-injured
Seferian-Jenkins becomes the most experienced tight end on the New England roster.
The 26-year-old Washington state native was a second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014. But he’s never been able to play a full season in his career, sidelined by injuries.
Seferian-Jenkins signed a two-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2018 but was available for just five games due to a core muscle injury, recording 11 catches for 90 yards and a touchdown.
In late February he tweeted that he is 100 percent healthy.
