A former 1st round pick, Dustin Keller is heading into the final year of his 5 year rookie deal and will make 3.0525 million. According to ESPN New York, Keller and the Jets are not in talks about a long term deal. Keller had a breakout season in 2011 with 65 catches for 815 yards and 5 touchdowns, but the Jets probably want him to prove it again before they pay him. They have the right to franchise him next offseason at a reasonable rate. The franchise tag rate for tight ends this offseason was only 5.446 million.
BEST OF MAXIM
Add Bart Scott to the list of current and former players who do not want their children to play football. Scott recently said his hope is that he plays so his son won't have to.

NEW YORK – If last week’s OTAs are any indication, Tim Tebow may be the best thing that has ever happened to Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.

New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott became the latest player to draw the line in the concussion controversy. Scott said he will not allow his 7-year-old son B.J. to play football, the New York Daily News reported Saturday. "I don't want my son to play football," Scott said. "I play football so he won't have to. With what is going on, I don't know if...
Believe it or not, it's not just ESPN that is obsessed about Tim Tebow. The (in)famous New York media is already stepping up to the plate with TebowMania and we're still over 3 months away from the beginning of the 2012 NFL season. Deep within Peter King's Memorial Day edition of Monday Morning Quarterback was this interesting tidbit about Tim Tebow being covered...
As lackluster as the offense was in 2011, the Jets defense was again a strength and a top 10 unit by most measures a pretty good unit. Rex Ryan’s reputation has been primarily built on a strong defense, and I’d say that’s been the biggest reason for the Jets relative success in his time in New York. Any signs that the foundation could be cracking? Let’s take a look.
New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott says he will do everything he can to stop his son from playing football because of the concussion issue that has engulfed the sport.
In the wake of the recent suicides of former NFL stars Junior Seau and Dave Duerson -- and in a time when thousands of former players are suing the league over claims it did not do enough to prevent the long-term...
Back in 2007 heading up to the NFL Draft I had an obsession with 3 players on defense. I thought there were 3 game changing guys in that draft. Those three players were Patrick Willis, LaMarr Woodley and Darrelle Revis. The rest of the draft was solid but these three guys were going to be the biggest studs in the draft. They have shown that is the case.
As the draft came...
The New York Jets have signed veteran offensive tackles Stephon Heyer and Ray Willis.
The 6-foot-6, 330-pound Heyer entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with Washington in 2007 and started 33 games for the Redskins from 2007-10. In 2011 he was active for 12 games, including two starts, with the Oakland Raiders after signing as an unrestricted free agent on Aug. 3.
The Buffalo Bills have the second-best offense in the AFC East, according to one expert.
James Walker, a blogger for ESPN, recently ranked the offenses of the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, New York Jets and Miami Dolphins. The Patriots were ranked number one, followed by the Bills, Jets and Dolphins, respectively.
Walker said the Bills could be solid offensively, but there...
