The New York Jets re-signed their backup tight end for three more years. It seems that Gang Green will be moving on from Kellen Winslow next season, allowing the fifth year backup to compete for the starting position. Adding Cumberland for three more seasons will only increase the comfort level between him and Geno Smith.

Gang Green's veteran tight end Kellen Winslow will be suspensed four games for testing positive for a banned substance, according to the NFL. Look for Jeff Cumberland to replace Winslow in the starting lineup beginning Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Since breaking through the NFL gates in 2004, we never really got to see much of Kellen Winslow Jr. Injuries have plagued him, specifically in his knees, and he missed almost as many games as he has played. So now that he is somewhat healthy and is given a clean slate to start over with the Jets, Winslow seems to find his niche not only as a tight end, but as the go-to guy for Geno Smith.
