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