The Jacksonville Jaguars might be signing a second tight end this week as The News Tribune’s Gregg Bell is reporting that Austin Seferian-Jenkins’ visit with the Seattle Seahawks went poorly and that he’s visiting with the Jacksonville Jaguars today.

As one person put it, that Seattle-to-Jacksonville flight is a long ass flight and no one’s flying four hours to not get paid.

Seferian-Jenkins has 105 career receptions for 1,070 yards and 10 touchdowns.

According to Spotrac.com, Seferian-Jenkins’ market value is about $4.1 million per year and they’re expecting him to be signed to a three-year, $12.4 million contract this offseason.

With the signing of Niles Paul, it seems the strategy is to collect a group of second-tier guys who can all contribute. Bringing a marquee guy in through the draft doesn’t seem to be the goal — and it might not be what’s best for this offense — so while I thought earlier Seferian-Jenkins wasn’t a guy worth pursuing he may actually fit this team and this passing offense well.
