Dustin Keller out for the season
Sunday, August 18, 2013, 9:03am

FOX Sports - [Full Article]

Miami Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller suffered a season-ending knee injury in Saturday night's preseason game against the Houston Texans, a source told FOX Sports.

The good news for Keller is the source said the injury is not believed to be career-threatening and that he could be back to work next spring. Keller will undergo an MRI on Sunday to confirm all of these initial fears.

Fantasy Impact:

This is obviously a big loss for the 'Fins and QB Ryan Tannehill. The Dolphins will ask Charles Clay, Michael Egnew and rookie Dion Sims to step up. What's even sadder for Keller is he turned down a four-year deal, instead signing a one-year contract in hopes of a bigger pay day after 2013. There was serious concern that it was a potential career-threatening injury, but that no longer looks to be the case.

Michael Egnew was supposed to be the Dolphins’ future at tight end when he was drafted in the third round last year. But he didn’t catch a pass in 2012, was criticized by coaches on Hard Knocks last year and seemed like a candidate to be cut this offseason. The Dolphins have a new rookie tight end they really like in Dion Sims, along with Dustin Keller and h-back Charles Clay.

But on the final day of training camp today, when asked which players have really stood out to him, Coach Joe Philbin went to Egnew first.

“Mike Egnew really improved an awful lot,” Philbin said. “He’s a guy we’re excited about.”

Dolphins TE rookie Dion Sims closed the offseason program with momentum and has a good chance to win the job to backup starter TE Dustin Keller.

Tight end/H-back Charles Clay will factor in, unless he continues his penchant for drops.

Michael Egnew has improved, but his blocking remains questionable and he faded late in the offseason program.

Indications were the New York Jets would sign Kellen Winslow II if he made it through minicamp healthy.

The veteran tight end did just that, and the team -- which could use a playmaker to replace Dustin Keller, who was lost to the Miami Dolphins via free agency -- announced Friday it has signed Winslow to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

Winslow could make some noise in PPR formats as the Jets constantly play catch up, but his best days are well behind him.

Former Rams WR Brandon Gibson agreed to terms with Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact:

Gibson gives the Dolphins a deeper WR corps that now includes Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Davone Bess and Dustin Keller.

Dolphins sign Dustin Keller to one-year deal

Free agent tight end Dustin Keller has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Fantasy Impact:

Keller is a capable receiving tight end. He has averaged 3.9-47-.29 over the last two seasons (24 games). Those are #13 TE averages in 2012. The Dolphins' passing game is shaping up to be much more potent with Mike Wallace and Keller on board.

The Jets are likely to be hard-pressed to retain free agents like tight end Dustin Keller and running back Shonn Greene, sources said.

Jets TE Dustin Keller, who will be an unrestricted free agent during the offseason, is eligible for the franchise tag if a deal is not reached by free agency, but does not want that to be an option.

"I 100 percent do not want to be franchised," Keller clarified in an e-mail. "I signed a five year deal, that’s what I agreed to. To make somebody play a one year deal to something they never agreed to is crazy to me. It’s not legal in any other business, so it’s still, it’s just crazy to me. So no, I definitely don’t want to be franchised."

The franchise mark for a tight end this year is $5.962 million, according to the league's Website.

Keller said he's looking to settle down with his next contract and remain in one place for an extended stay.

Jets to part ways with Sanchez, Tebow
Thursday, December 20, 2012, 11:37am

ESPN - [Full Article]

With one quarterback change, the New York Jets may have affected the future of two quarterbacks -- Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow.

The Jets will explore all options with Sanchez, including a trade, and the team plans to part ways with Tebow after the season, league sources said Wednesday.

It would be difficult to trade Sanchez because of an $8.25 million guarantee in 2013 in his contract. However, the Jets, who benched Sanchez this week in favor of the unproven Greg McElroy, are taking an open-minded approach and may be willing to start over at quarterback.

Meanwhile, a clearly miffed Tebow, no longer masking his season-long frustration, left no doubt he's unhappy with his role. He will seek to play elsewhere next season, and the Jets appear willing to accommodate his wishes.

Fantasy Impact:

It's odd that the Jets never gave Tebow a start after trading for him earlier this year, but trying to get into the minds of the Jets' brass is not an easy thing to do. As for Sanchez, he's not an elite talent, but he wasn't exactly dealing with a good receiving corps this year. Santonio Holmes, Dustin Keller and Stephen Hill all missed extended time with injuries. He's likely to get another crack at a starting job in the next year or two.
