New York Jets Free Agency News: Dustin Keller Leaves Miami Without a Contract


Well, the tight end doesn’t look like he is taking is game to South Beach after all.

After heading to Miami for a tryout, which ended up turning into a physical, and apparently contract negotiations, Dustin Keller was expected to be signed by the Miami Dolphins. Well, as reported by Rich Cimini, Dustin and the Dolphins parted ways without a contract offer.

Pro Football Weekly is reporting that the two sides are staying in touch.

It would appear that the Dolphins want to see how the market plays out for the tight end before making a move.  This certainly doesn’t guarantee that a deal won’t be struck, but it leaves the opportunity for other teams to jump in.

Should the Jets jump in?

With all of the players that have left the Jets in recent days, they might want to consider it.  The cupboard is running a bit bare, and they are going to need to bring SOMEONE in to play.  Aren’t they?

Maybe it should be Keller.

    Delanie Walker , Martellus Benett, Anthoney Fasano got their money. Teams are now shopping on a budget. IMO Dustin was looking for four years 24-25 million. The market has spoken. I think Keller is worth 7million for two years or 3.5 a year. I am very glad Devito got his money in KC, happy the Jets didn’t chase. Colts took a huge risk on Landry, 6 million a year with 14 million in guarantees, the guy has a scary injury history. Very disapointed that Yeremiah Bell signed by the Cards for a mere 905,000 but 660 in guarantees. Bell played well and gave stability to the Safety position, could have gotten him cheap, indicates to me that Idzik is playing for 2014

      I agree with all of that JetOrange. Is it quite obvious that John is going right after a rebuilding process here. Nothing too rash, taking his time, and letting the market tell the story.

      I’m happy about it…what do you think?

        It’s like sitting in a dentist chair its painful but it is the right thing to do . Idzik and the previous work of Tannenbaum has gotten the Jets to a positive Cap position. John has shown restraint, the second step. If you look at the rosters of the Dolphins, Patriots and Bills, not all that impressive, they have holes after the first wave of Free agency. It must be noted that Idzik gets high marks on the Holmes restructure, and the Revis Drama ( less drama).. The next step is procuring talent at reasonable prices, and then the draft, could be exciting.. Then we will see if Rex can coach for his job, I like his staff,, especially Morningweg and the DL Coach, can’t wait

          All fair….he has kept the drama to a minimum, which is huge. Soon we’ll see how he works with new guys in town.

            Well he just signed Mike Goodson RB a very nice WCO back for 3years at 6.9, very nice start… The devil is in the details of this contract, it should be interesting
