Austin Seferian-Jenkins drawing interest from numerous teams; Jets won’t raise offer

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at New York Jets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Connor Hughes reports the Jets are not budging on their two year, $8 million offer to tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who will officially become a free agent on Wednesday if the two sides do not work out a deal.

In turn, a number of teams are showing a degree of interest in the tight end.

While plenty of teams seem to have some level of interest, it isn’t clear which clubs are willing to exceed the Jets’ offer.

In any event, I am inclined to agree with the way the Jets are handling things at the moment. Seferian-Jenkins had the best season of his career in 2017, but he made a relatively low impact, registering only 350 receiving yards. A deal in the $4 million annual range seems more than fair.

The Jets haven’t been great at setting a firm price for players in free agency over the last few years. This might be the first step forward.
