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.

Miami Dolphins TE Dustin Keller said the biggest thing for him about joining the team was the opportunity to win. Keller said he noticed the team was bringing in high-character players. 'Once I got in the building, it was an easy decision for me,' Keller said.
Huddle Up: Keller is eyeing a bounce-back season in his new locale. The TE hit career highs in 2011 with 65 catches for 815 yards and 5 TDs in 2011, but a troublesome ankle limited him to only 5 starts and a 28-317-2 campaign in 2012.

The Miami Dolphins signed TE Dustin Keller to a one-year contract that will pay $4.25 million.
Huddle Up: Keller is a significantly more dynamic pass-catching tight end than Anthony Fasano, who held that role in Miami last year. With Mike Wallace stretching the field, there should be room underneath for Keller to make some fantasy noise in 2013.

Free-agent TE Dustin Keller (Jets) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins Thursday, March 14, without a deal, but the two sides will keep in touch. The Dolphins are likely just gauging the market.
Huddle Up: The Fins could use a TE with Anthony Fasano departing for K.C., but it looks as if the search will continue.

Free-agent TE Dustin Keller is taking a physical for the Miami Dolphins. If all goes well, he is expected to start talking contract with the team.
Huddle Up: Keller would bring a more dynamic pass-catching presence to the position than the Dolphins had in Anthony Fasano, and with Mike Wallace stretching the secondary there should be room in the middle of the field for Keller to work. He was a solid fantasy contributor in New York and would be at least as productive in Miami.
