ASJ pleas out to lesser charge.


Former Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of reckless driving for his DUI incident in Tampa last year. Jenkins will avoid jail time and serve 1 year on probation, with 50 hours of community service, attend a DUI class.


The incident resulted in Tampa’s releasing him and he was quickly picked up by the New York Jets. Jenkins could be facing a two-game suspension by the NFL, next season. ASJ played seven games for the Jets, last season, catching 10 passes for 110 yards.


Since being drafted in 2014, by the Bucs, Jenkins have yet to live up to his potential. He has no guaranteed money owed to him in 2017. The Jets can cut him with no worries.
