Dolphins bringing Dustin Keller in for a visit

Having lost tight end Anthony Fasano to the Chiefs while they were throwing money at Mike Wallace and linebackers, the Dolphins are back in the hunt for an offensive complement Wednesday.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Dolphins are bringing Jets tight end Dustin Keller for a visit.

He’s been an excellent receiving threat when well, but played just eight games last year with ankle problems.

Of course, the Jets general offensive malaise would have depressed his numbers anyway, but considering what he’s had to work with, he’s still put together solid stats.

  1. Dolphins have needed a receiving TE for a while now. Keller can fill that void but he can’t block as well as Fasano. Regardless, he is one of two that I hope they try to get (Davis is the other one) now that Walker and Cook are signed.

  2. Keller sounds great, right up to the point when you notice he disappears for stretches of the season.

    Then the next thing you notice is the 6 yard patterns on 3rd and 8, then the ball hitting him in the back of the head on fire routes, and that he routinely gets brought down on first contact by dbs.

    Good hands, fair to middling blocker, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of contract he’ll get.

  3. Not a big fan of his 6’2″ height, right now with Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Devone Bess we need 6’5″ plus target in the Red Zone to elevate and make contested catches in tight space.

    At 6’2″ Dustin Keller is an ehhh for me… Missed big time on Jared Cook and Martellus Bennett in my estimation.

    But all things considered it been a solid off-season thus far for Mr. Ireland.

  4. As a Jets fan Im bemused by this turn of events… Keller was hands down the biggest threat on the Jets team. Horrible blocker, but truly a great rout runner and catcher. He always found a way to get open and is a Hernandez type threat.

    I cant believe the Jets would let the Dolphins acquire their biggest weapon without any compensation! This is like the Pats trading Curtis Martin to the Jets! If it were not for Sanchez over throwing Keller or missing him when he was wide open He would be a 2 time pro bowler. My only hope is that Tanninghill is another Mark Sanchez or the Jets are screwed!

  5. Since when does running a 4.53 in the 40 make slow. If you are.a Dolphin fan don’t write another post making You look like a fool, we have enough fans that dont know jack squat.

  6. Big upgrade or not, this guy always used to shred the Dolphins’ defense. At least if they sign him he won’t be able to anymore.

  7. After missing out on Bennett or Cook, I think we should pass on Keller. I think Brandon Myers is actually better anyway. The best move at this point is to grab Eiffert or Ertz, blazing huge targets and we can get one of them in the 2nd. Hate to waste a #12 on either. The Keller move is to add depth anyway and hopefully at a value price.

  8. Bad move. Stay away from Keller. Miami made every TE look like a pro bowler. Need to get one of the rookies in the draft.

  9. Holy crap Keller only looks like a good TE because the Jets haven’t had anyone else who can even sort of catch a ball for a few years.

    He is a bust of a first-round pick. Don’t go looking for all the highlights of times Keller was open and Sanchez didn’t find him they don’t exist.
