Austin Seferian-Jenkins Finally Becoming a Weapon
Over his first two years, Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been a disappointment. He came with high expectations as the 38th overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft. But, between injuries in his two seasons and trouble with his hands when active, “ASJ” has been anything but a weapon. It culminated during OTA’s when coach Koetter had to kick him out of practice.
That could have been the end for him, but to his credit, he is turning things around. So far in training camp, ASJ has led the team with five receptions for 46 yards. He has had to fight for playing time after being placed second on the depth chart behind Cameron Brate. Last week against the Jaguars, he posted three catches for 36 yards, good for second on the team that night.
Two weeks does not resurrect a career but it is a good start.
