After leaving the Miami Dolphins without a contract on Thursday, free agent tight end Dustin Keller might be feeling a bit anxious. It's for that reason his agent will likely reach out to teams like the Denver Broncos, Buffalo Bills and New York Giants in an effort to spark interest in his client. In fact, the Miami Herald reports that's it's more than likely; it's their "understanding" that's exactly what's going to happen.



I was excited until I read what they believe he will be asking for. Is he insane? If this dude is willing to take a reasonable contract, I'd love to have him on the Giants.

I doubt the Giants are interested. It's probably just speculation since we lost Bennett.

I'd like him for cheap, but not sure the Giants would be interested.

I'd put him somewhere around 3 year $11 million for it to make sense, assuming the Giants would even pay that. But he is a very solid TE. Unfortunately, it looks like his agent is waaaaay off from that number.

Yeah, it's not happening due to money.

He's touched the same balls as Mark Sanchez. No thanks.

He made Santrash look good at time. Santrash will miss throwing to him, big time.

Will Sanchez even have any targets left? I feel like they signed David Garrard to play wide receiver or something.

Santonio Holmes, Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill... Means even less once you see who's throwing at them.

Not that bad of a cast. You got 1 proven WR in Holmes, 1 solid-average WR in Kerley, and a youngster with tons of potential in Hill.

But then again, Sanchez could have 3 Jerry Rice's catching his passes every week and it probably would make no difference.

I don't know whether the Giants will go after Keller or not but they better go after somebody because right now we have a guy from the practice with no game experience and an untried rookie from last years draft unless you count Bear Pasco, not too encouraging is it.....

Still the draft to go, I imagine they'll pick someone up there.

Gerrard will be the TE, Tebow will be the RB and if they get Kolb he will be the slot receiver.

For the right price this guy could be a great fit. I think he'd have a better season then Bennett did last year.

Keller would be a terrible fit here, the dude can't block worth a damn. In this offense the TE's first responsibility it block block block...then be pass catcher. This would be Beckum part 2 with better hands

Keller went to the dolphins anyway, so it doesn't matter anymore.
