Don't think of him costing as much as a top-five TE. Think of him as the Laron Landry of the offense. A one-year rental on a prove-it deal that has a decent chance of being worth the money. TE is probably going to be the cheapest tag there is ahead of K/P.
Franchising him makes a lot of sense on three conditions:
1) He's healthy
2) Morhinweg wants him, is excited about him.
3) you draft a guy like Vance McDonald or Kelce in the 3rd round with a decent shot to develop in 2013 and potentially replace Keller in 2014.
I'd love Vance McDonald , unfortunately there's too many holes on this team to think we can spend a high draft pick on a TE. But if the Jets were to draft him I'd be very happy.
