When the Miami Dolphins revamped their roster this offseason, one name that was seemingly forgotten until now is Dustin Keller. However, the addition of the veteran tight end could prove to be one of the team's wisest decsions of the year.
As a member of the New York Jets for the past five seasons, Keller always appeared to have his best games of the year against the Dolphins. Now that he dawns aqua and orange, Miami is counting on similar production out of the 28 year old in 2013.
Coming off an injury that saw him miss half of the 2012 campaign, the demand for Keller on the open market plummeted. As a result, he elected to sign a one year contract with the Dolphins to prove his worth to the league in order to score a much larger contract next offseason.
However, after appearing in just two exhibition games and playing limited time, Keller has already caught the attention of many. Despite a relatively quiet performance in the Hall of Fame Game that saw him record one reception for four yards, his skill set and chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill were on display in Week 1 of the preseason. In that contest Keller played four series with the starting offense, finishing with 2 receptions for 46 yards and a touchdown.no comments
