It is a contract year for Dustin Keller. We have heard that he is looking for a new deal this offseason, and the Jets have been hesitant to talk contract with him. They seem to be waiting to see how he fits into the Tony Sparano scheme, and how he performs within it, before rewarding Dustin with a new deal.

He will perform well, to the tune of over 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career.

Here are some factors why:

CONSISTENCY

Keller has been the most consistent receiver the Jets have had. His receptions have gone up every year since Mark Sanchez arrived, from 45, to 55, and finally to 65 in 2011.

This comes from being the only receiver that Mark Sanchez has had every season since he joined the league. There is a great deal of good that comes from a receiver and quarterback being together every year, in order to build chemistry. Keller has become Sanchez’s safety blanket, and that will continue and shine in 2012.
