Agent Says Keller Is Ready


It hasn’t been a year yet since then new Miami Dolphins TE Dustin Keller had his knee blown up during a pre-season game against the Houston Texans.  A torn ACL, PCL, and MCL along with a dislocated patella ended Keller’s season and many thought would end his career.  Welcome to the new world of modern medicine.

According to Keller’s agent, Jordan Raanan, Keller is ready to go.  Will teams take a look and a chance?  That’s another question.

Keller was signed to a one year deal last season and after the draft will likely find a TE needy team who will give him the same.  Non-guaranteed until the season begins.  For Keller it’s the best he can hope for.  If he can follow that up with a solid productive season, maybe he get’s a better deal in 2015 but for now, Keller can’t expect much more than that as teams will be weary of a knee that was devastatingly injured.

If his agent is correct however it’s an amazing turnaround in only a short eight months.  What used to take at least a year to heal and rehab an ACL tear has become almost a side note.  Still, while his agent may say he is ready to go teams may not be ready to give the free agent a chance just yet.  Here is hoping at some point, someone does.

    If the dolphins flop with every tight end chance they have then i would be very excited to have him back

    I used to hate Keller… when he was with NY, then he became a free agent and I wanted him for Miami, and when we signed him I was very happy, but this time though, I’m just hoping this young man goes through the rest of his life without needing a walking aid, but maybe medicine has advanced so much now that he is as good as new, and in that case, as long as there are no mental scars (instinctive hesitations etc), not only would I just settle for him, but I would actually want him.

    Should be able to pick up Keller cheap!

  • Ray Ray

    I was excited to have him on the team last year, and if rumors are true we should try to get him locked up for this year too as i would no like to see him in new england as a double threat!! Sign him and draft one too

    I’d love to see that punk DJ Swearinger have to deal with a similar possibly carrer edning injury for what he did to Keller.
    No excuse for a hit like that in pre-season. None.
