The case for Dustin Keller




I know reading this headline all of your red flags for injury prone are sprouting up but hear me out. Keller prior to 2012 had not missed a single game or practice in his first four years in the league. Now his 2012 campaign had a lingering ankle/groin injuries and then we all know about the knee in 2013. I feel this is a TE that has untapped potential. His first four years in the league he got progressively better and produced more. I feel with our tight budget constraints and as the odds of retaining Pettigrew diminish, we may have to take some chances. He is a guy who could come in to compliment Fauria and Williams. If he passes the physical screener, I feel we can get him on the cheap. He had a 1 year show me something deal last year and got hurt. I feel he could potentially produce and is within the Lion's price range. We are going to have to take some chances this offseason if Mayhew and others feel we are on the verge. I would like to see him in the D if he is healthy.
