Dustin Keller Signs with Miami Dolphins

Al Bello

The Miami Dolphins are back into the free agency signing game, adding former New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller today.

The Miami Dolphins and free agent tight end Dustin Keller have agreed to a one-year deal. Keller had been in Miami Wednesday and Thursday, but left last night with no deal in place. Communication lines were said to remain open after Keller left.

Rumors were that Keller was looking for more money than Jared Cook received with the St. Louis Rams this offseason. Cook signed a five-year, $35 million deal with $21 million guaranteed.

Keller apparently backed off any desire for that kind of contract and has agreed to the one year deal. He's spent the last five years with the New York Jets, where he recorded 241 receptions for 2,876 yards and 17 touchdowns.

The Dolphins are trying to load up on offensive weapons this offseason to build around second year quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Miami needed a pass catching tight end heading into free agency, especially when Anthony Fasano left the Dolphins to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Phinsider will keep you up to date with all the Dolphins news, including more on the Keller signing when it's available.
