Austin Seferian Jenkins on signing with Patriots'I’m ready to go to work

In need of tight end help, the New England Patriots and free agent Austin Seferian-Jenkins have reached a contract agreement.

The Patriots have yet to make the move official, though Seferian-Jenkins confirmed he was signing with the team on Instagram. He logged 11 catches for 90 yards and a touchdown for Jacksonville last season before going on injured reserve in October with a core muscle injury that required surgery.

The other four tight ends on the Patriots' depth chart - Jacob Hollister, Stephen Anderson, Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo - have combined for 71 career receptions. Getting any production out of a veteran player on a minimum deal would be considered a win for the Patriots. Even after signing Seferian-Jenkins, tight end still is one of the Patriots' biggest needs in the 2019 NFL Draft.

4 key takeaways from William Barr’s testimony on the Mueller report
At the White House on Wednesday, Trump repeated his claim that the investigation was illegal. That reference to selective editing, of course, concerns special counsel Robert S.

Seferian-Jenkins' best season came in 2017 when he caught 50 passes for 357 yards and three touchdowns.

Seferian-Jenkins has missed considerable time during his career with injuries.

Seferian-Jenkins is likely to see a massive spike in ADP after this news, with some analysts saying he could be a mid-range TE1 in New England. He's a mid-range TE2 with some upside, but this isn't a "Rob Gronkowski 2" situation.
