Dustin Keller: New York Jets shouldn't franchise me

New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller is not interested in the franchise tag when his rookie contract expires after this season. The five-year NFL veteran missed seven games this season with hamstring and ankle injuries.
"I don't want to be franchised," Keller told the New York Daily News on Thursday. "You want to make sure that you're going somewhere and you're signing something that was your decision. You don't want to be told that you're doing something for whatever price. You want to make that decision for yourself. You don't want somebody else making it for you. I would love to come back here, but when I came here, I signed a five-year deal and this is the fifth year on it.
"You want to be able to make that decision for yourself. That'd be illegal in another job."
The rules surrounding the franchise tag are a whole other discussion. They're part of the collective bargaining agreement and aren't changing until it's renegotiated.
The 2013 franchise tag for tight ends is tentatively set for $5.962 million. That's probably more than Keller would command as a free agent but without the security of a multiyear deal. He had a career year in 2011 with 65 receptions for 815 yards and five touchdowns. He played in all 64 games his first four years. But he's not on the list with the top tight ends in the NFL.
"My thinking always was that if they want me to, I will play out this deal and sign a new contract (after the season)," Keller said. "That's my word. The whole franchise tag deal is crazy. Somebody played out their contract, but now you can make them come back for another year even if it's not something they want to do? That's not the situation that I'm in right now, but I just think it's crazy.
Posted 19 Dec 2012This is probably the most extensive poll i think that has been done for nyjetsfan.com so I would be really appreciative for answers haha. I also believe that this will spawn a lot of interesting answers as well.
Due to most of the people, like myself, freaking out at this entire year of the Jets, I decided to make a poll on the some of the worst situations to transpire with this organization of all time.
If anyone answers Other of course, please feel free to post what that was in the comments section. And since there are sooooo many wonderful moments in the history of this organization, feel free to pick more than one moment, but please make it 3 moments at most. Thank you, and let the debate begin!

Rex Ryan on Tim Tebow: 'We'll see what happens'
Tim Tebow is expected to ask the New York Jets for a trade or a release in the offseason. We suspect the Jets won't be averse to a divorce.
"We'll see what happens," coach Rex Ryan said about Tebow's future on Wednesday. "My focus has to be with those two games and that's it."
Greg McElroy will start the next two games and get virtually every first team snap in practice. Ryan's decision to decline saying that Tebow will be on the team next year is a sure sign that Tebow is likely on his way out.
Ryan answered questions Wednesday about why he brought Tebow to New York in the first place. In one breath, Ryan defended the move
"(The Wildcat) hasn't been totally ineffective," Ryan said.
Then again ...
"It hasn't panned out to my expectations and maybe to Tim's either," Ryan said.
Yep, that about sums about the Tebow experience in New York.
Posted 18 Dec 2012I just want to point this out. This team four seasons ago was one step away from the Super Bowl. FROM THE SUPER BOWL, and they had a shot to get there twice!!!! It's almost funny in a way to look at how pathetic, putrid, disgusting, horrendous, abominable, and more vocabulary terms for horrendous, this organization has become. I'm so ashamed of dawning the Green and White right now. The only satisfaction I now have is that I have tickets to this upcoming game, and I am located at section 103, which is literally only 3-4 sections away from the 'Jets Sideline' sections. If my prediction comes true and no one shows up to this game, I am walking my ass towards that sideline, and I am making sure that the offense, Lapband fuckk (Rex), and Fat Fuckk (Sparano), get an earful from me. They deserve nothing less at this point. God if only Tannenbum was down there as well, I'd really have fun with that. Anyway... FUCKK THIS TEAM!
