If Austin Seferian-Jenkins finally can play to his potential in Year 4, he could be the Jets’ best — or at least most productive — offensive skill player in 2017. The 6-6 tight end reportedly stopped drinking and has dropped about 20 pounds, and he’s expected to be more involved in the passing game under Morton.
The tight end the Jets really would love to see produce, however, is Jordan Leggett, the rookie fifth-rounder out of Clemson. At 6-5, 258 pounds, he’s another big body who can aid in both the running and passing game. With ASJ’s contract scheduled to expire after the 2017 season, Leggett has a chance to become New York’s No. 1 tight end for the future if he can prove capable.
The Jets’ obvious issue at tight end, in addition to inexperience, is depth. Brian Parker, Anthony Firkser, Eric Tomlinson and Jason Vander Lann fill out the position group going into training camp.
