NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets and tight end Jeff Cumberland have agreed to terms on a new contract.

Cumberland, who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent Tuesday, led the Jets last season with a career-high four touchdown receptions. He also had a career-best 398 yards receiving on 26 catches in his fourth NFL season.

The Jets announced the move Saturday, but did not release terms. It's believed to be for three years, according to published reports.

Cumberland, a former wide receiver at Illinois, signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He has developed into a key part of New York's offense while starting 24 games the past two seasons. Cumberland has 58 career catches for 795 yards and seven touchdowns.
