Tight Ends Cumberland / Amaro take pressure off Jets Wide Recievers

The New York Jets have receiving tight ends in Amaro and Cumberland.



Jeff Cumberland hasn’t set the world on fire with his numbers the last two seasons and will need to improve, but allot changes this year with the addition of TE-Jace Amaro on the other side.

Jeremy Kerley was the Jets leading receiver in 2013 mostly out of the slot and with Cumberland as their only viable tight end their passing game wasn’t hard to block.

2014 will be an entirely different story as for the first time in years the Jets have options.


Starting tight ends Cumberland and Amaro will have help with a revitalized wide receiver corps.

Veteran wide receivers Jeremy Kerley and Eric Decker are joined by a host of prospects which by design will cause the opposing defenses to spread.

The JETS  using a version of the west coast / spread offense will force defenses to respect their receivers. Double covers well leave someone open.

Going into camp July 23rd the team has to feel good about themselves.

Offensive Questions remain to be answered:

*Can the offensive line improve over last year.

*Will the quarterback be able to get the ball off fast enough for the line to hold.

*Will Stephen Hill emerge as a number two receiver threat.

*which receivers brought on will solidify that 4th spot.

The running back situation seems solid and Johnson, Ivory, Powell can also catch coming out of the backfield.

Training Camp will answer most of these questions with pre season games being a deciding vote on the others.

No matter what your view, this team is better than they were in 2013.
