Austin Seferian-Jenkins Seeking $7MM/Year

Jets free agent tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is searching for a $7MM annual salary on the open market, according to Darryl Slater of Seferian-Jenkins (vertical)

New York will meet with Seferian-Jenkins’ agent at the scouting combine at the coming days, per Slater. ASJ has already rejected one offer of two years, $8MM from Gang Green, and he’s apparently looking to nearly double the salary proffered by the Jets. A $7MM annual salary would tie Seferian-Jenkins for 12th among tight ends, alongside the Cardinals’ Jermaine Gresham.

A former-second round pick, Seferian-Jenkins is fresh off the best season of his career. In 13 games (10 starts), the 25-year-old Seferian-Jenkins posted 50 receptions for 357 yards and three touchdowns. While 50 catches ranked 13th among tight ends in 2017, Seferian-Jenkins doesn’t offer much as a blocker, as Pro Football Focus ranked him as just the 35th-best run-blocker.
