New York Jets Must Keep Dustin Keller
Dustin Keller, who at one point was recognized as one of the elite tight ends in the NFL, is now a few steps away from finding a new home in the league.
As a result of the New York Jets not using their franchise tag on anyone of their players, all indications lead to Keller not being with the team next season.
Keller, 28, was the main target for quarterback Mark Sanchez for the past few seasons, when he was not battling injuries. More recently, with Keller’s injury that sidelined him for much of the 2013 season, Keller only had 28 receptions for 317 yards. It was pretty evident during the games that Sanchez missed Keller, who was sort of “old-reliable” for the struggling quarterback.
It seems as if the Jets aren’t too worried about losing Keller because of the unclear quarterback situation that they are presented with right now. Keller has been the leading receiver for the past few years, and brings a vertical threat aspect to the tight end position that many players can’t bring to the table. Keller is so versatile that it’s hard to comprehend why the Jets wouldn’t bring him back. Keller has been an exciting player who really has been one of the only bright spots of the organization since he entered the league. With the current receiving core of the Jets, losing Keller would just put them in a deeper hole for trying to put legitimate receivers on the field for whoever the quarterback may be, to throw to.
The Jets cannot let Keller get away. It looks like they will already be losing Darrelle Revis and LaRon Landry, so they cannot let another star slip away from the team. It’s understandable that they might want to rebuild, and Keller does require a lot of money, but if they want to be somewhat competitive for the 2013 season, as well as still engage their friends, keeping Keller needs to be a priority.
