Voliate. Talented. Frustrating. And now emotional. All are words used to describe Bucs tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
The latter however, was a self-given description following Wednesday night’s loss to the Redskins in the Bucs final preseason game.
“Sometimes I get emotional and let my emotions get the best of me,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “But I love my coaches and my coaches love me and we definitely talked and it was what it was. I came right over and we talked again and it is good. You know football, sometimes, emotions get the best of you. It was what it was.”
The Bucs video boards captured Seferian-Jenkins coming off the field following an incomplete pass intended for him, and the Bucs second-round pick in 2014 was visibly frustrated at something, and was vocal to the coaching staff on the sideline. Wide receiver Russell Shepard stepped in between Seferian-Jenkins and coaches.
Following Wednesday night’s game head coach Dirk Koetter didn’t elaborate very much on the emotional outburst.
“Yeah he did, he did. We have got to remember: players play and coaches coach.”
Following the game Seferian-Jenkisn clearly wanted to put the incident behind him.
“Football is what we were able to play ….and I am just thankful I am out there and able to play. I appreciate being able to play out there and I am happy. Unfortunately we didn’t get the win.”
