FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The Jets will be without their best tight end for the first two games of next season.

Seferian-Jenkins, 24, will be eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.
The Jets did not release any other details. Seferian-Jenkins was waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after being charged with driving under the influence in Florida, his second such offense.
