We're going to find out this year. The New York Jets enter a new season with some serious roster flaws on both sides of the ball. Things particularly are grim on offense, where the Jets have little in the way of established playmakers outside of Santonio Holmes. Even Holmes is not a given at this stage.
We're guessing that Cumberland is holding himself and Winslow up against Gronk and Hernandez in terms of physical size only. Gronkowski (6-foot-6, 245 pounds) has two inches and about 15 pounds on Cumberland. Winslow and Hernandez roughly are the same weight, though Winslow has a two-inch height advantage.
Of course, size doesn't promise production. In truth, the Jets would be thrilled if their tight ends provided half of Gronkowski and Hernandez's statistical output in 2013.
