The New York Post and various other outlets are reporting that Jets TE Dustin Keller is looking for a new long term deal. Keller has been looking to get an extension for a while, but the team has rebuffed any talks on the deal for now.
“We’ve tried to approach them, but it really hasn’t moved too much,” Keller said at his charity bowling event at Chelsea Piers.
Keller has stated that he would not holdout if a deal isn’t reached but as ‘core player’ Keller feels a bit slighted for now.
“Obviously, I’d like to be one of those core guys . . . that’s going to help them win,” said Keller. “I feel I am, but still you want to get that contract done. That pretty much makes it official.”
D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Nick Mangold, David Harris and Mark Sanchez have gotten extensions before their contracts were up.
