Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins arrested on DUI charge

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end, Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested early Friday morning on misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence. The third-year tight end was driving 80MPH in a 55MPH zone, according to Florida Highway Patrol. He also made an improper lane change and cut off an officer, prompting the traffic stop.

Once stopped, Seferian-Jenkins was unable to complete a basic sobriety test, and refused to provide a blood sample.

This isn’t the first alcohol-related offense for the Buccaneers tight end. He plead guilty to a DUI charge in college, while he was attending the University of Washington.

The Buccaneers are already without second string tight end, Luke Stocker, who left the game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday with an ankle injury and has yet to return to practice. It is likely that Tampa Bay will have to promote someone from the practice squad to bolster their depth.
