12:52 PM ET 03.15 | The Dolphins have agreed to a one-year deal with tight end Dustin Keller, The Miami Herald has learned. Keller???s brother, Damien, broke the news on Twitter. He wrote: ???What up DOLPHINS! Welcome the Kellers to Miami please! #phins??? Keller visited with the team Wednesday night and most of Thursday before leaving without a deal. He was said to have been unhappy with a one-year offer, but ultimately agreed to those terms. He will be paid $4.5 million in 2013, ESPN reported, and will presumably replace Anthony Fasano in the starting lineup. Keller, 29 in September, has 241 catches in the 72 NFL games he???s played the past five seasons. He was the New York Jets??? first-round draft pick in 2008.

Is it my imagination, or are there a lot of stories about former Jets signing on elsewhere?

Can't blame Keller for getting away from the circus in New York. Just when you think it can't get any worse for the Jets.........it does. Wow!

Keller is no great loss to the Jets, but might take the heat off of Wallace with respect to dropping passes!

Keller was the Jets only consistent offensive threat the past few years, except last year

He was an OFFICAL PASS DROPER, he took them out of many drives and can't block a lick and only got a 1 Year deal!

More over-priced FAs. Phins need to buy brains and install in front office.
