A former veteran NFL tight end was reportedly arrested again earlier this month, according to a report by TMZ Sports.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, 27, has been out of the NFL since the 2019 offseason. The former Washington Huskies star was reportedly arrested in early March.

The six-year NFL tight end was reportedly arrested on March 9, per TMZ Sports. He was reportedly arrested for DUI.

This was Seferian-Jenkins' third DUI arrest, with his last one coming in 2016. He was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following the arrest in 2016.

Seferian-Jenkins was a second round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Washington. The talented tight end was one of the best players at his position during his time with the Huskies.

The former NFL tight end began his career in Tampa Bay. He played for the Bucs from 2014-16 before his release following his 2016 DUI charge.

Seferian-Jenkins then played for the New York Jets (2016-17) and the Jacksonville Jaguars (2018). He was picked up by the New England Patriots in 2019 but didn't make it to the regular season.

The former NFL tight end had 116 catches for 1,160 yards and 11 touchdowns during his career.
