Florham Park, NJ (Sports Network) - The New York Jets have signed tight end Kellen Winslow, the team announced on Friday.

Terms of the contract were not made available, but multiple sources are reporting the deal to be a one-year pact.

With the Jets extremely thin at the tight end position and Winslow looking to revitalize a once promising career, the situation seems ideal for both parties.

Winslow has amassed 438 receptions for 4,848 yards and 23 touchdowns since 2004, but his last productive season came in 2011, when he hauled in 75 passes for 763 yards and a pair of touchdowns for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

That was his last of three seasons in Tampa Bay, as he was traded to the Seattle Seahawks the following offseason. He was so ineffective in his first training camp with Seattle that he failed to make the team.

He briefly caught on with the New England Patriots in 2012, but appeared in just one game and his only production came on a 12-yard catch.

Jeff Cumberland is the only other tight end on New York's roster with any significant playing experience after the team let five-year starter Dustin Keller leave for Miami via free agency.
