Could Tight End Dustin Keller Return To New York Jets ? ? ?

His former team currently faces uncertainty with their depth chart. In theory, Jeff Cumberland and Kellen Winslow offer a dangerous combination. Injuries and suspensions denied an extended look. As I stated recently, keeping both would be a smart move, however, Winslowís latest incident could change thinking. Having someone so erratic disrupts team chemistry. Cumberlandís touchdown numbers are trending up, so Gang Green would be wise to bring him back. If that doesnít occur though, Keller should be pursued.
During 2011, his numbers included 65 receptions and five touchdowns; blocking was also a decent part of his game. Operating from the West Coast offense serves pass catching tight ends well by opening chances down the middle. Even if Cumberland comes back, they could use another presence. Zach Sudfeld made plays at time, but I donít know if he can be counted on. Health is an issue when discussing Kellerís future though. Speculation continues as to whether the talented player can ever compete again. There is no harm in at least making a phone call and working him out, assuming he hits the free agent market.
....we've actually WON some games ! ..For Real ! !

No doubt Keller will be cheap coming of that injury. Remember the best he could get in free agency last year was a mere one year deal.
I wouldn't be against bringing him back, but the most important thing for Idzik and co. to do is to ensure we bring in talented skill position players on offense who will be signed for the long term and not just as band aids. We need to surround Geno, or whoever will be our starting QB, with weapons and allow them to develop chemistry.

Keller's best play came in his rookie season with Brett Favre.
