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.
