09:29 AM ET 03.03 | The Jets are the only NFL team tight end Dustin Keller has ever known. That may change soon. Keller is scheduled to become a free agent March 12, and all indications are the Jets will let him hit the open market. The 28-year-old does not know what to expect from the free agency process. "I kind of view free agency like the draft, at this point I don't know where anyone stands, including the Jets, but everything will take care of itself," Keller told The Post in an email. "I'm not stressing myself out about where I'm going to be, I'm just going to continue to work my butt off this offseason so I'm ready no matter where I'm going to be." Still, Keller made it clear he would love to be back with the Jets. He remains close with quarterback Mark Sanchez as well as others on the team that selected him in the first round of the 2008 draft out of Purdue. "Yeah, I'd like to return," he said. "I have a lot of great friends on the team, and I've always thought of myself as a key piece of the offense there, but if I'm not there that's fine, too. There are no hard feelings. I understand it's a business for the Jets, but at this point it's a business decision for me as well."

Well, golly, I know a team that will need a TE because Martellus does not think they are showing him enough luv, and you will not even have to move.

Martellus is proof that some players should stay in college and work on their emotional maturity.
