Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins lost his job with the Buccaneers following an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol last September, but he won’t be spending any time in jail.

TMZ Sports reports that Seferian-Jenkins, who joined the Jets after his departure from Tampa, has reached a plea deal in the case. Seferian-Jenkins entered a plea of no contest on a reckless driving charge and was sentenced to one year of probation and 50 hours of community service. He’ll also pay a fine and attend a DUI prevention class.

The NFL has typically suspended players involved in DUI incidents for two games, so the tight end is likely to face discipline from the league heading into next season.

Seferian-Jenkins, who is signed for next season, caught three passes for 44 yards with the Bucs and 10 passes for 110 yards with the Jets in 2016.

    He will be well protected by goodell and all the other jets staff at 345 Park Ave. Jenkins likely will be the jets nominee for “Man of the Year”

    When the Patriots signed that guy from Arizona under similar circumstances everybody was up in arms. When the Jets did it nobody even whispered. Ironic.

    It’s hell spending the weekend at a local motel with a bunch of drunks, being lectured by ex-drunks telling you to admit that you are a drunk, too.

    Not sure where this DUI happened but the NY mayor just said drinking and driving is not a big deal if nobody is hurt.
