The New England Patriots have stayed in touch with free-agent TE Dustin Keller (Dolphins) but no deal is close at this point, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Keller was hoping to parlay a big 2013 into a big free agent contract, but an injury derailed those plans. He could wind up as a bargain for the Patriots and provide them with the other half of the two-tight end attack they've used so successfully the past few seasons.

Free-agent TE Dustin Keller (Dolphins) left the New England Patriots' facility Thursday, May 1 without a deal.
Huddle Up: The notoriously stingy Pats aren't about to over-extend themselves with an opening offer, so don't be surprised if Keller, their former AFC East foe, still eventually winds up in N.E. at some point soon.

The New England Patriots could show interest in free-agent TE Dustin Keller (Dolphins) at some point this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Pats obviously know Keller well from his days with the rival Jets, where he averaged 53 catches and 640 yards and 4 TDs a year during his first 4 seasons in N.Y., but he's coming off a multi-ligament knee injury in the 2013 preseason that cost him all of last season.

The Miami Dolphins are not expected to re-signing impending free-agent TE Dustin Keller (knee) because of the injury he is coming back from and that TE Charles Clay played well as the starting tight end this season.
Huddle Up: Keller didn't make it out of the preseason in his Miami debut, tearing an ACL, MCL and PCL and dislocating the knee in an exhibition against the Texans. He's come a long way in the 6 months since the injury, but it looks like he'll be starting over again in NFL terms.

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins TE Dustin Keller (knee) did not suffer any nerve or cartilage damage on his season ending hit to his knee and can try to mount a comeback in 2014.
Huddle Up: This is the best possible news for the TE following his horrific-looking knee injury in the Fins' third preseason contest, and fans everywhere will be rooting hard for a Keller comeback a year from now.

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins TE Dustin Keller (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and posterior cruciate ligament during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17. Keller also suffered a dislocated knee.
Huddle Up: A devastating turn of events for Keller, who is out for the season and now faces some career questions as well. Fantasy aside for a moment, we wish him the best recovery possible. As for fantasy implications, the loss of one of the team's prize free-agent acquisitions is going to hurt second-year QB Ryan Tannehill, and the Fins will now look to second-year man Miachael Engrew or TE/FB Charles Clay to try to fill the void.
