[QUOTE=NY2FLDWC85;4500845]Who's to say that the Jets aren't considering extending Dustin Keller's contract before his contract expires next offseason? Maybe we're hoping he has a monster season during his contract year.
Regardless of what you say PatsFanTx, you can't deny the fact that Keller's first 4 seasons in the league have been more productive when compared to Vernon's first 4 seasons. In short, Dustin Keller is on the right track.
First 4 years from Vernon Davis: 181 receptions, 2,097 receiving yards, 11.5 yards per reception, 93 first down receptions, 22 TD's and 4 fumbles.
First 4 years from Dustin Keller: 213 receptions, 2,559 receiving yards, 12.0 yards per reception, 131 first down receptions, 15 TD's and 2 fumbles.
These statistics above, only goes to show why Keller's DYAR and DVOA numbers/rankings are better heading into his 5th season (this up coming season) when compared to Vernon Davis heading into his 5th season (2011).
During Vernon's first 4 years in the league, he combined for an average DYAR of 7 (average ranking of 31.6) and an average DVOA of -18.5 (average ranking of 32.5).
During Keller's first 4 years in the league, he combined for an average DYAR of 39.5 (average ranking of 24.75) and an average DVOA of -1.1 (average ranking of 27.7).
It's a no contest.
Vernon Davis: 67 receptions, 792 receiving yards, 11.8 yards per reception, 33 first down receptions, 6 TD's, 3 fumble(s).
Dustin Keller: 64 receptions, 815 receiving yards, 12.5 yards per reception, 39 first down receptions, 5 TD's, 1 fumble.
If Vernon Davis is the "better player", one thing is for sure; it's most definitely not showing/translating onto the football field in regards to overall production/statistics.[/QUOTE]
I'm not sure what you are saying here. Do you think Keller is better than Veron Davis? :confused:
