Surely there are a number of ways to get kicked off an NFL practice field, but “not knowing what you’re doing” is arguably the most degrading. Fox Sports reports that Buccaneers’ tight-end Austin Seferian-Jenkins started the offseason with a boot from practice for that exact reason.
Tampa Bay head coach Dirk Koetter kicked him off the field himself and reveled his decision was because Jenkins “didn’t know what he was doing.”
Neither coach nor Jenkins elaborated on what exactly went wrong at practice, and Jenkins seemed rather dismissive on Twitter following the incidence.
Seferian-Jenkins later tweeted “MOVING ON!!!!” but deleted it quickly after.
Jenkins will have to step up if he wants to impress the new coach and play a big part this year. In his two seasons with the Buccaneers he has caught 21 passes and received 559 yards, but on top of that he has dealt with multiple injuries that have kept him from succeeding greatly on the gridiron.
Not a great day for Jenkins, but with his athleticism and promising skill he’s bound to overcome the embarrassment and show Koetter what he’s got.
