Bucs make roster move, but not saying anything on Seferian-Jenkins DUI

The Buccaneers made a roster move Friday, but it didn’t involve tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who was arrested this morning on DUI  charges.

The team announced that linebacker Devante Bond was going on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, and that linebacker Josh Keyes was returning to fill the roster spot. Bond, their sixth-round pick, apparently aggravated a preseason hamstring problem when he returned to practice this week.

But they had much less information on Seferian-Jenkins, hours after he was arrested for his second DUI (the first was when he was in college).

Via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, coach Dirk Koetter didn’t have anything to add.

“Obviously, there was a situation that we became aware of this morning and we just don’t have all the details yet,” Koetter said. “By the time we found out, we were into meetings this morning and we’ve been on the practice field. Right now, I don’t have all the information. We’re aware of it.

“[General Manager] Jason [Licht] and I will be getting together this afternoon and whatever is going to happen will be forthcoming.”

Asked for reaction to Seferian-Jenkins’ arrest coming shortly before 4 a.m. on a work day, Koetter again deferred: “I haven’t seen reports on everything, on anything like that, so I just don’t know. I’m not going to stand up here and talk about stuff I don’t know about. It’s stupid.”

It certainly is, though it’s unclear whether Koetter was talking about his tight end’s behavior or the notion of speculating without full information.

    No wonder he is so spaced out that he needs to be sent home from practice because he does not know what he is doing.

    Bad karma with TE’s from the University of Washington and the Bucs. Jeremy Stevens was the first mess.

    Out til 4 am guzzling? No wonder he doesn’t know what he’s doing at practice. This not a teammate. Koetter and Co. need to cut this guy loose to make a statement. It’s either acceptable or it’s not.
