The Jets have re-signed tight end Jeff Cumberland.

The news was first reported by Joe Caporoso of TurnOnTheJets.com this afternoon.

Manish Mehta confirms the reports and provides further details.

Cumberland is a fairly limited guy. He's a big target and pretty fast and athletic. He can be effective as a receiver on limited routes. He doesn't utilize his speed or size enough to make a big difference.

The Jets probably would not be well-advised to bring Cumberland back as a starter. As a backup role player he isn't a great option, but you can live with it as long as the deal is cheap.
