The Jets are reportedly interested in bringing back one of their primary tight ends of the last two seasons.

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets have talked to prospective free agent Jeff Cumberland about a new contract.

Cumberland, 26, caught 26 passes for 398 yards for the Jets in 2013. He led the club in TD receptions (four) last season.

The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Cumberland has shown some field-stretching ability in the last two seasons, with 13 catches of 20 yards or more in this span. According to Mehta, the club likes Cumberland’s upside.

Kellen Winslow, who led Jets tight ends in receptions in 2013 (31), is also slated to be an unrestricted free agent.

    A receiving core of Eric Ebron, Jeff Cumberland, Jeremy Maclin/Emmanuel sanders, Jordan Matthews or Allen Robinson and Jeremy Kerley would be pretty deadly.
