another decent cost effective signing.....
Decent pass-catcher and blocker.....
This will fill the blocking TE need for the Jets, which, strangely enough, has been harder to fill for them than the pass catching TE.
If its around $1m, sure, why not? Anything to stop having 6 lineman play 40% of the snaps.
Big, tall guy who has been an effective red-zone target (11 TDs on only 47 career receptions), but whose real value is as a blocker.
He drove the Bears crazy as a starter because of drops but, as a cheap potential #2 blocking TE, he could be a nice addition.
I like celebrities with one name:
He is a total JAG. But it goes along with what Idzik is doing. Signing guys that can be cut at anytime. We just need to fill out a roster this year.
What (if anything) does this mean for Hayden Smith I wonder.
Jet will HAVE to draft a TE in the first 5 rounds. They have nobody.
No one is really a shoe in there. And the fact that they have potentially 4 JAGs at TE doesn't preclude them from taking a TE in the draft.
I'd rather take a chance on Fred Davis.
Fred Davis would be nice
Davis has physical tools, but terrible hands. He killed a lot of drives in Chicago.
Keller wasn't great but his departure is a loss. People seem to like Cumberland but I remember him looking very unathletic and stiff, struggling to make an easy catch. TE looks to be a glaring hole on the team now. Davis doesn't sound like the answer, nor is there anyone else really in FA, looks like they might be gearing up to address this in the draft.
