Keller is clearly an above average pass catching TE. The only reason that goes unnoticed is because he plays on a bad offense. He's better than guys like Jermichael Finley. As a matter of fact, if he were to go to a team like the Packers (assuming that he remains relatively healthy) would put up serious numbers.
practicing great and putting pressure on him and the locker room was getting split behind one or the other, you could say that the Sanchez folded because of the pressure. But according to every thing fans hear, Tebow practiced poorly and the team was squarely behind mark being the starter. It is very apparent on how little Tebow was used that hey did not spend a lot of practice time with Tebow behind center with the 1s.
and there's the catch

I'd let him walk unless he really comes back at next to nothing.
The guy just doesn't offer a ton receiving. He has a garbage catching radius, his athleticism in the short area is garbage, and he does nothing after the catch. He has good straight line speed, and has developed into a solid blocker but that's it.
im all for improving this team if we had unlimited money.
keller knows the system and up until this season was a decent te we already have cumberland i say if the price is right sign him.
we have many other glaring needs that need to be addressed.
Don't overpay Keller- he's spent 3/4 of this season on the sidelines with a supposed injury that hardly anybody saw. Considering Sanchez may not be the starter next year, that's another reason to let him walk- same with a certain WR I will not name that everybody else on this board is enamored with.
Keller should be signed only if he is reasonably priced and we don't blowup the team. He gets open and is a good safety valve when healthy. He is also very fast. Trouble with him is he is inconsistant and has poor games when we need him.
If Keller doesn't come back, I wouldn't mind signing Fred Davis or Jared Cook
