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.
