The Jets continue to add on to the roster as they have brought in OG Charlie Tanner according to Bevo Beat. The team also managed to sign TE/WR Jeff Cumberland according to various Twitter reports.
Below is some brief information on Cumberland and some of my thoughts about Tanner:
Regarding Jeff Cumberland:
Cumberland is a king-sized receiver who isn’t explosive out of his stance but displays good short-area quickness and has the ability to cleanly change directions. He does a nice job finding the ball over the middle and has the body control and coordination to adjust to poorly thrown passes. He knows how to set up corners and does a nice job changing speeds out of his breaks and finding soft spots underneath. But he isn’t explosive and lacks the speed to gain consistent separation out of his breaks and downfield. Cumberland has some natural receiving skills but will likely be asked to make the move to tight end or H-back at the next level since he possesses the athleticism to get down the seam and separate underneath.
Regarding Charlier Tanner:
There is very limited information on Tanner however he did play LG at Texas and I would imagine he has been brought in to provide depth for the offensive line. He could in theory be used as a “insurance policy” in case the team runs into an issue with the left guard position.
These are very solid pickups by Tannenbaum. Although I would have liked to see a DL or a pass rusher, both of these players have a good chance of helping the team — Cumberland could be used in certain packages while Tanner could either provide depth or become a starter depending on how well he develops.
