The New York Jets are interested in bringing back one of their two tight ends that are slated to become free agents, and his name isn’t Kellen Winslow.
According to the NYDN, the Jets have started talking to Jeff Cumberland about a new deal.
Winslow may have led the team in receptions last year, but his off the field issues seems to be something that the Jets don’t want to deal with going forward.
The 26-year-old tight end was able to bring in 26 passes last season for a total of 398 yards and a team high of four touchdowns. He has also caught 13 catches for 20 or more yards over the last two season with the Jets. The Jets have had their offensive issues as of late, and while keeping Cumberland isn’t going to solve them, it’s probably not going to hurt them either.
