The New England Patriots did not overwhelm Austin Seferian-Jenkins with dollar signs, but they still have a lot to offer the veteran tight end.
The Patriots signed Seferian-Jenkins on Wednesday with a one-year contract that supposedly was worth the league minimum. The 26-year-old was considered by many to be the best tight end available on the open market and, according to reports, he chose the Patriots about the Seattle Seahawks, by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
So, why did Seferian-Jenkins finally choose to take his talents to Foxboro? That's what a fan asked in the comments section of the latest Instagram publication of the five-year veteran, and the second-round selection of 2014 offered a logic that apparently has no flaws.
After being limited to five games in the 2018 season due to an injury, Seferian-Jenkins appeared to be forced to "prove it" in the hope of re-increasing his actions. What better team to do that than the Patriots, who are just in their sixth Super Bowl championship and need a closed end after the retirement of Rob Gronkowski. And yes, catching Tom Brady pbades is a difficult opportunity to pbad up.
After the pit stops with the Tampa Bay Buccanneers, New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars to start his career, it is safe to say that Brady will be the best quarterback with whom Seferian-Jenkins has played.
