Ex-Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins allegedly was high, drunk, speeding when arrested for 3rd DUI | Is he done in NFL?

Former New York Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was recently arrested for his third DUI. AP

Details have emerged about ex-Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins’ March 9 DUI arrest in Washington, his home state.

It was his third DUI arrest, with his previous two coming in 2013 and 2016.

Here’s TMZ with more:

Austin Seferian-Jenkins was high, drunk AND speeding when he was arrested for DUI last week ... this according to cops in new police docs obtained by TMZ Sports. Oh, and cops also say he didn’t have the ignition interlock device installed in his car, stemming from a court order from a previous DUI. A Gig Harbor PD officer claims the NFL free agent was doing 48 MPH in a 30 in Gig Harbor, Wash. on March 9 at around 1 AM ... when the former Tampa Bay Buccaneer began driving erratically.

According to the officer, ASJ was swerving in his 2016 Dodge Charger ... and nearly turned onto a wrong-way offramp before he cut across multiple lanes of traffic without a blinker. The officer eventually pulled over Seferian-Jenkins ... and says in the report, the tight end told him he was just headed toward a local McDonald’s for some late-night grub. But, the officer says he noticed ASJ reeked of booze and burnt weed ... and also claims the 27-year-old’s eyes were red and bloodshot.

The cop says when Seferian-Jenkins got out of the car, he was swaying in circles when he was standing still ... and after the NFL player refused field sobriety tests, the officer arrested him on the scene, claiming he believed ASJ was both drunk and high. Seferian-Jenkins was eventually hit with 3 charges ... 1 count of DUI, 1 count of driving with a suspended license, and 1 count of operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock device, which tests the driver’s breath for alcohol before they can start the vehicle.

Seferian-Jenkins has been open about his alcohol abuse issues. During his time with the Jets, he sought treatment for those issues and subsequently said he was sober.

Seferian-Jenkins turns 28 in September, so he’s certainly young enough to get his NFL career back on track, to some degree. But it seems he has more important things to work out before football even becomes a consideration again. And you have to wonder if any team would even be willing to take a chance on him, in the wake of another DUI arrest.

Seferian-Jenkins played 20 games with the Jets — the most of his three NFL stops. They waiver claimed him following his 2016 DUI arrest.


Seferian-Jenkins is from the Seattle area and played at the University of Washington. He last played in the NFL in 2018 (five games with the Jaguars). He was with the Jets from 2016-17, after starting his career with the Buccaneers. He was a second-round draft pick in 2014.

"Austin Seferian-Jenkins was high, drunk AND speeding..."    A genuine triple threat.  Dude is a mess despite having been given every opportunity to get his act together.  Some people never learn.

Well to be fair, at least he wasn't also jerking off in the car so that's something...

And no minor in the passenger seat or unregistered assault rifle in the trunk.  Damn, he's a friggin' boy scout compared to some of the headcases we've had here.

and he didn't have a loaded gun and a toddler in the back.  (Sheldon)

Between ASJ and Kellen Winslow I'm just glad Arron Hernandez got locked up before we had a chance to kick the tires on him.

Drinking and driving is completely reckless and not funny in the slightest.

He wants to drink? Fine. Just don't get behind the wheel after doing so

Yea. Not the scenario to joke around. My bad.

To me, that is three strikes and you are out.  Should be a MINIMUM 10 year sentence for this.

More than anything my rage about ASJ is having two tds called back by the idiotic no catch rules of slightly bobbling as you cross the line and then watching Gronkowski later in the year doing the same thing if not worse and them calling it a td.
