UPDATE (6:09 p.m. ET, Mar. 14): Well, this took a bit of a turn. After a signing seemed like nearly a formality, Keller is leaving Miami without a contract, although the communication will continue.
The Miami Dolphins are continuing their spending ways by being on the verge of inking free agent tight end Dustin Keller to a deal. The former New York Jet is in Miami getting a physical and, pending a pass, will talk length and finances with the team.
TE Dustin Keller Is now getting a physical and if all checks out afterwords the club and his agent will talk terms.

Keller was drafted 30th overall in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Jets and put up over 500 yards in each of his first four seasons in the league, peaking with a 65 catch, 815 yard performance in 2011. Last season, Keller was limited to eight games due to a pulled groin and high ankle sprain and finished with 317 yards and 2 touchdowns.
