Jets, Jeff Cumberland agree to three-year deal

Cumberland AP

The Jets have locked up starting tight end Jeff Cumberland for three more years.

Cumberland has agreed to terms on a new three-year contract, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

There’s no word on the financial terms of the contract, but the source tells Mehta that the Jets believe Cumberland is a young player who’s ready to take the next step. Now they’re committed to him as a key part of their offense.

The 26-year-old Cumberland started 12 games at tight end last year and caught 26 passes for 398 yards and four touchdowns.

    26 is a middle aged player in the nfl.

    Good choice keeping him around. Needs to get better in all phases of his game but has good speed for a TE.

    Yeah ok he is a guy who may be able to catch 40-50 passes a yr, but he is by no means dynamic and that is what you want. Still need another TE and getting a better one would not hurt (altho not at the crazy price we would have to probably pay Finley).

    that’s right. most underrated TE in the league

    This could be a big year for him. Time to step up, solid move by Idzik.

    I’m ok with that signing.

    Only on an offense as bad as the jets could this be considered a good signing.

    Still would not mind grabbing a top TE (ebron) with out 1st pick. deep dreaft for Wr’s.

    Wow

    He is a #2 tight end. Since you are allowed to have more than 1 tight end on the field, this is an excellent signing if done for the right price.

    Just helping the naysayers understand how this football thing is done.

    Good hands & YAC. Some potential here. Solid signing.

    Best TE we have so makes sense to resign him and he has appeared to come back strong from injury. He has improved his blocking and his speed is a mismatch for most LB’s. I’m sure they didn’t break the bank to keep him. I’m more concerned that Howard hasn’t been resigned yet.

    now all the jets need is a QB!

  15. ubepunkedagain says: Mar 8, 2014 9:28 AM

    Just a coach, a QB, and some talent on both sides of the ball away!

  16. upperdecker19 says: Mar 8, 2014 9:35 AM

    Hopefully he didn’t celebrate with a trip to the local Target parking lot like another Jets tight end

  17. rainmaker1982 says: Mar 8, 2014 9:47 AM

    Should’ve let him walk. You’re telling me there’s nobody better than him via draft or FA?

    He’s a 3rd TE at best.

    yes, it’s as original as the jets offensive game plan. am wondering who will be the QB of the jets this coming year, smith or sanchez. the jet offense is pathetic. it’s a shame what the jets have become, they won’t beat the patriots for another 10 years. by that time, the bills should have a good team, but the jets will be the same old jets unfortunately.
