Jets looking into free agents Brandon Pettigrew, Ed Dickson, and Scott Chandler

The New York Jets have re-signed tight end Jeff Cumberland to a three-year deal. Despite locking in Cumberland as a tight end, they’re still looking at signing another tight end in free agency and are aiming high.

From the New York Daily News:

Team decision makers are high on Zach Sudfield’s potential, but the Jets need as much as help as it can get for quarterback Geno Smith. Veteran TE John Carlson, who was on the Jets’ radar, signed a two-year deal with the Cardinals earlier Friday.

The Jets have had internal discussions about veteran tight ends Brandon Pettigrew, Ed Dickson and Scott Chandler, according to two team sources. Gang Green is also expected to add at least one wide receiver in free agency. The league’s three-day negotiating window begins Saturday. The official start of free agency is Tuesday at 4 pm.

That’d be a big signing to land one of those tight ends but they might not be interested in the coming to the Jets.
