Dustin Keller signs one-year deal with Miami

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

After Miami lost out on the Jared Cook sweepstakes, the Dolphins turned their attention to former Jets tight end Dustin Keller. On Friday, via CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Keller agreed to a one-year deal with Miami.

It's bad news for the Jets.

Quarterback Mark Sanchez (or David Garrard or Kevin Kolb or whomever is the New York quarterback next year) loses one of his top receiving targets, and the mass exodus from Woody Johnson's squad continues (that includes running back Shonn Greene, safety Yeremiah Bell, safety LaRon Landry and defensive tackle Mike DeVito). At this rate, coach Rex Ryan will be lucky to field a team, much less worry about his job.

The other problem for the Jets, of course, is that one of their division rivals gets to use Keller against New York for however long he's with the team.

Plus, he's quite a nice pickup for Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who will welcome Keller along with free-agent receiver Mike Wallace and the re-signed receiver Brian Hartline to make the Dolphins scarier than they were in 2012.
