According to a report from Rich Cimini, the NY Jets TE Dustin Keller, has left the Dolphins facility without a contract. Cimini says the two sides will keep in touch which normally means, “yeah, I’ll let you know when I sign with another team”.
Keller has been in Miami for two days and there is some grumbling that Miami is waiting on Jake Long signing with St. Louis and the fate of Jermichael Finley in Green Bay. They are entertaining DE Michael Bennett and WR Brandon Gibson at the moment.
The Dolphins currently have two glaring needs. Cornerback where Dimitri Patterson and Richard Marshall stand as the starters and TE where the team has Michael Egnew and Kyle Miller to go along with HB/TE Charles Clay on their roster. Keller would have provided the Dolphins a big seam threat TE and another target for Ryan Tannehill.
Outside of Keller, the Dolphins could still entertain Fred Davis of Washington and Brandon Meyer of Oakland. Neither player stands as a top TE like Jared Cook who the Phins were unable to land and Dustin Keller.
