Jeff Cumberland knows he’s not a household name. But that'll change soon, the Jets tight end said.

“I think this will be a come-out year for me,” he said. "I'm ready to make some big-time plays and show what I've got this year."

Cumberland spent the past three years as Dustin Keller’s backup, but now he expects to make an impact in Marty Mornhinweg’s West Coast Offense.

“You're always going to have those doubters out there that really don't know too much,” he said. “I wouldn't expect too many people to know too much about me . . .But they'll find out soon enough who we are as a team.”
