The Seattle Seahawks tight end situation is like an onion -- there's layers to it. There's also levels to this...nevermind. Suffice it to say, no one's exactly positive how they'll handle their tight end situation but a local boy seems to be setting the stage to try to fill a possible void. With Jimmy Graham and the team possibly parting ways in free agency, former Washington standout and New York Jets free agent Austin Seferian-Jenkins could be trying to find his way home. Or he could be trying to make it look like that to create leverage. According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, Seferian-Jenkins has already turned down a two-year, $8 million offer from the Jets but he expects the two sides to continue to try to work on a deal. Apparently the first offer was light on guaranteed money. All this in lieu of other hints that Seferian-Jenkins may be making a play to Seattle. The biggest shoe to drop was him changing his agent to Doug Hendrickson. Hendrickson represents Michael Bennett and Marshawn Lynch and was able to secure extensions amid some turmoil for both clients; so he's a bit of a "Seahawks whisperer." The second hint was him actively telling Marqise Lee he would best fit in Seattle. Doesn't that sound like recruitment?
Is Austin Seferian-Jenkins angling to play for the Seahawks?
