    Dustin Keller signed?

    His brother posted this on Twitter.

    I think it's a good signing if true.

    ArmandoSalguero The Dolphins are closing in on a deal with Jets TE Dustin Keller. Still working but looking good for both sides.

    I'll remove the ? mark once we get better confirmation. Always skeptical this time of year.

    Better to be skepical than to believe everything that is put out there. If it's true that'll be great news.

    F**** Yeh baby.

    I love this signing.

    Drools.....hoping this means either Patterson or Austin are now in play at #12. And....maybe this also means...Jakes situation is now resolved

    This still keeps tight end as a need in this years draft.

    one year... there goes that theory (of us not wanting to commit big money toward this years cap for some reason). I'm assuming this is in the $4 to $5.5m range. Should put to bed the Pitta talks. Now, LT and CB....

    Im less enthused if it turns out to be only a one year deal. Maybe they do have faith in Egnew and want to give him an opportunity to shine this year while using Keller as a stop gap.

    I still like this move... One less hole that HAVE to fill in the draft...Not saying that they don't draft someone (Kelce??), but we won't be caught with our pants down if one of the top 2/3 guys aren't available to us in the draft...

    Now, we need a CB (or two) and an OT to at least go into the draft with all our options open...

    Didn't see that, must be a one year, prove it deal coming off the injury...likely that TE is in the plans coming out of the draft...

    Seems like I'm in the minority but I LOVE that Irish got Keller on a 1-year deal (which I did not expect, I thought we'd have to shell out for 3). Now if a TE drops in the draft we can swoop in, or if Egnew actually develops we won't be handcuffed to a deal for Keller. If neither of those things happen, we can re-sign Keller. Perfect.

    Maybe the FO saw what Long was being offered by the Rams and said H*** NO. So tehy decided to move on. Either that or they just didn't want to remain dormant anymore. Either way, we finally improved the TE position. I don't think this rules out drafting one if one of the big two falls in our lap in the 2nd round.

    Ashley Schaeffer BMW! ...WOO! Nature boy looks like Will Ferrell from Eastbound and Down in that GIF. Interested to know how much we paid for him.. I think I would have rather preferred one in the draft but we'll see what happens.

    Nah, 1 yr deal is fine as the NFL has so many tools to keep players, even if he has a monster season.

    What I really like is now we have Draft flexibility, some may say Cb..not so sure you need a #12 pick on a zone Cb.

    I think they could (and should) still look at Kelce in the draft with 2nd pick in round 2 or in 3rd if still there. Or look at a bigger TE in later rounds.

    This is a stopgap. Kelce (or a later round kid) can come in and block and be developed and Keller - at one year - gives them a veteran presence while Clay and Egnew continue to learn and develop.

    Good signing though - they needed a veteran at this spot (the only other guy I'd have confidence in without a vet is Tyler Eifert and there's no guarantee he'd be there in round 2).

    And/or DE, imo.

    I don't want to go DE in round 1.

    Abraham did visit.

    I bet Long is still in the works.
