———-

Adam Caplan of ESPN is reporting that the Chargers are expected to sign TE Jeff Cumberland to a contract.

The Patriots recently brought Cumberland in a for a workout, but did not sign him to a contract following the session.

As of now, Chargers have Antonio GatesSean McGrath and Asante Cleveland available at the tight end position, so they could use some more depth for the start of offseason workouts and training camp.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Cumberland to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.

Cumberland, 28, was in the final year of his  three-year, $5.7 million contract when he was released in a move that freed up $1.9 million in available cap space for the Jets.

In 2015, Cumberland appeared in 15 games and recorded five receptions for 77 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
