Biography

Jeff Cumberland is looking to make a comeback for the Chargers in 2017. The Chargers originally signed the former New York Jets tight end to a one-year contract in April 2016, but Cumberland’s season ended before it started when he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury during a preseason game. Fully healed and trimmed down, Cumberland is set to play his eighth NFL season.

A former undrafted free agent who entered the NFL with the Jets in 2010, Cumberland has caught 86 passes for 1,119 yards and 10 touchdowns during his career.

Cumberland’s 2016 Achilles injury was the second of his career. Three games into his second season with the Jets in 2011, Cumberland suffered his first. He bounced back to play in 15 games the following year (2012) and over the next four seasons, he played in 61 of 64 possible games. After the 2012 season, Cumberland’s Jets teammates selected him as their winner of the Ed Block Courage Award

Cumberland went to school at the University of Illinois where one of his teammates was Chargers defensive tackle Corey Liuget. Cumberland majored in sport management at Illinois and during the 2011 season when he missed 13 games with the Achilles injury, he took advantage of the time by performing an internship in the Jets’ sales department. Still looking to further his education, Cumberland was accepted into the University of Miami’s Master of Business Administration for Artists and Athletes Program in January 2016.

A native of Columbus, Ohio, Cumberland had the values of hard work, dedication, faith and community instilled in him by the woman who raised him, grandmother Rosline Cumberland. He still maintains close ties to his hometown where he oversees the Jeff Cumberland Foundation, which hosts several annual events, including a youth football camp, a holiday toy giveaway and a Thanksgiving turkey giveaway. One of the frequent beneficiaries of Cumberland’s benevolence is the Boys and Girls Clubs. In December 2014, the NFL Players Association named Cumberland as its Community MVP.

Cumberland is also a staunch supporter of the U.S. military and is deeply concerned about critical causes such as cancer awareness.
