It sounds like the Bucs have put the Austin Seferian-Jenkins’ incident from last Thursday’s final OTA session behind them.

A couple hours after Seferian-Jenkins publicly apologized for his unpreparedness at practice and subsequent Twitter outburst at fans who chided him for getting kicked off the field, Dirk Koetter asserted that the whole thing was blown out of proportion.
“I told you guys on Thursday, you’re making too big of a deal about it,” Koetter said after the first minicamp practice. “What happened happened and he said what he said and we’re practicing again. That’s that.”
Koetter seemed to be speaking only of Seferian-Jenkins’ mishap in practice, though the tight end told reporters that he spoke to his head coach about the Twitter rant, too. Seferian-Jenkins called it a “lapse of judgment” borne out of frustration and apologized to fans and the organization. He said he and Koetter are on the same page now and he’s ready to meet the Bucs standard.
His quarterback is supportive and ready to move on, as well.
“Austin is my friend – his locker is right next to mine, so we discuss everything and everything went well,” said Jameis Winton… “You’re going to have some mistakes here and there, but as teammates, we love each other and we’re going to bounce back.”

I don’t care what he does if he scores lots of touchdowns.
Do you think JW gave him some sh!t the next morning in the locker room, like reading him back some of his dumber tweets?
Got a chance to watch Mini-Camp practice yesterday. Once he matures a little more and stays free of injuries, this guy can be a real weapon.
I like that his locker is next to Jameis. Im sure that is no accident.
