Bucs wrap up draft class by agreeing to terms with Austin Seferian-Jenkins

AP

The Buccaneers signed first-round pick Mike Evans and third-round pick Charles Sims on Thursday and they’ll get the final member of their draft class to sign his four-year deal on Friday.

The team announced that tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has agreed to terms on a four-year contract and that he will sign that contract in Tampa on Friday. Once he does, the Bucs will have signed all of their 2014 draft picks.

The Bucs have already wrapped up their offseason work after winding things down with this week’s minicamp, but Seferian-Jenkins hasn’t been able to do much. He was limited at the team’s rookie minicamp while recovering from foot surgery and league rules forced him to miss the remainder of the spring work because Washington had not finished its academic year.

That may hinder Seferian-Jenkins’ attempts to get on the field a lot as a rookie, especially with veterans Brandon Myers, Tim Wright and Luke Stocker already on the roster and able to work in Jeff Tedford’s offense this spring. Seferian-Jenkins has more potential upside than any of those players, though, so the Bucs will likely give him a chance to catch up quickly once camp is underway.

  1. Those are some really bad jerseys. Hopefully they phase them out after this year. Worst numbers ever! Can barely read them!

  2. Tim Wright has upside. Brandon Myers is just a guy. Luke Stocker has had multiple opportunities to do something on a team that has had a big hole at TE for years, and has done nothing. He won’t make it out of camp on the Bucs roster; he’s been completely forgettable in every way.

    And yes, as a Bucs fan, I would like to formally apologize for the font they chose for the numbers. I have no idea why they thought making the players look like an alarm clock was going to be intimidating to the other team.

  3. Actually, up close the unis are really cool, and under the lights the numbers pop off the jerseys. People are gonna be amazed how cool these unis actual are when they see them in other than badly lit pictures.

    Dude…it looks like his jersey number is B-question mark….

  5. Ugh…that time of offseason when people talk more about the unis than actual football. I admit I’m not a big fan of the new look but I care more about the potential of this team. Keep in mind this is the 1st draft class in franchise history that ALL offensive players were taken. That speaks volumes for the defensive unit already in place and the new look of the offense. The wait is painful but I, along with many other Buc fans are optimistic that it’ll finally be worth it!
