Perhaps recognizing he was running out of chances in the NFL, New York Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has dropped weight and looks to be in much better shape during OTAs.

According to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, Seferian-Jenkins is down to 260 pounds per his agent Brian Fettner.

The light went on, and he’s really dialed in,” Fettner said.

Seferian-Jenkins was suspended for the first two games of the upcoming season after a DUI arrest last year. The former second-round pick was dumped by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season after the arrest as it reached a breaking point with the team. Injuries and a general lack of production, combined with the emergence of Cameron Brate, led to his exit from Tampa Bay.

Seferian-Jenkins caught just two passes for 10 yards in seven games played for the Jets last season after being claimed off waivers.

    Hope this has some truth behind it. For the Jets sake, but more importantly for the health and future of this young individual.

    So he is back to the weight he came into the league at. I must have missed the “Austin Sefarian-Jenkin’s weight is spiraling out of control” article that makes this news worthy.
