    Here's one evaluation of Ertz:

    Stanford University tight end Zach Ertz is quietly surpassing the other best TE prospect, Notre Dame's Tyler Eifert, on many draft boards. What Ertz offers is a huge frame, solid straight line speed, so he can be a versatile offensive weapon.

    Ertz is polished as a receiver. He runs clean routes and shows a nice snap when changing directions. He clears defenders without losing much speed and can redirect a linebacker caught flat-footed. Ertz has great hands and can snatch the ball away from his body. Not a great leaper, but with long arms and a tall frame, he doesn't necessarily need to be. Tough and willing to take big hits over the middle.

    As a blocker, Ertz has a long way to go. He'll be best utilized as a receiver first and a blocker second. A potential liability against elite pass rushers. Will need at least a year before becoming close to an "every-down" type of tight end who can stay in on pass protection on occasion. Lacks the lower body strength to push a defender off his mark. Plays with a good attitude, a hard working football player.

    I would have loved to see him with the giants so then all these jet fans that wanted him run out of town would see how good he would do with a solid qb. Jesus look what he did in 2010 I believe again with Mark suckchez.

    Will we draft a TE?
    Like most players, coaches, FO people the past 2 seasons.

    Although look at his stars '10 & '11 he was top 10 in receptions for TEs.

    solid, but replacable. not one phase of his game is top 10 among TEs - speed, routes, hands, blocking.

    I am fine with this. Like I have been saying. So tired of hearing the word potential as it relates to Jet players. Yes Keller did show a few signs of greatness. Just not near enough. He never took that next step. Start new, just like we are going to do with 80% of the roster over the next couple of years.

    If Keller signed an absurdly expensive deal then it would make sense to let him go. However, he signed a one year deal. I would have liked to given him another year in this new system and seen how he performed. He is a solid receiver and one year deal is not that much of a gamble or commitment.

    @JasonLaCanfora: Dustin Keller gets a one-year deal with Dolphins - another sign it's tough sledding on the TE market

    Cumberland has the same skill set as Keller. Needs to improve his route running. Time for him to prove what he can do.

    Look at his rookie season with Favre.

    That's the difference. Hate to see him go.

    Unfortunate history of the Jets franchise, NY media, and fan base:

    1. See talented player in the draft.
    2. Draft talented player.
    3. Fan base/media GO NUTS believing they are THE BEST EVER!
    4. The player, although good/respectable/servicable/above average, does not live up to expectations of being THE BEST EVER within 2-4 years, and the media/fan base starts to sour.
    5. Player hears/reads all the boo birds/negative media reports, and play suffers. Sometimes, coaching is poor/lame duck. Sometimes, said player gets hurt (contact sport, it happens), which compounds the anger against him.
    6. Fan base begins to HATE/DESPISE said player.
    7. Player is run out of town, and compared to the handful of busts that the team has had (Ghoston, Blair Thomas, ect.).
    8. Player goes to another team, and plays out a respectable career, often beating the Jets and/or winning a Super Bowl on his other team.
    9. Rinse and repeat every position every 2-5 years.

    I'm not sad to see him go. I think he did underachieve with the skill set he had. He is the TE version of Greene, put up some okay numbers due to number of targets, looked very good a game maybe two a year, mediocre most of them and bad in a few. The going offsides stunt he pulled in that one game in the red zone told me a lot about him as a player.

    Why? Because he makes the occasional nice play? Nobody's saying he can't play ... it's just not that big a loss. He can't block a lick - well below average - and he's certainly not in the Gronkowski/Gates-in-his-prime mold where he's a difference maker. He's just ok. Dustin Keller's are a dime a dozen.

    Not a huge Keller fan but today the Fins are marginally better and the Jets are marginally worse. As a Jets fan this is not something to cheer about.

    there's a prevailing thought that b/c he was drafted in the first round, he's destined to blossom with another team. he never exhibited the skill set of a true first round TE talent.

    Give me an example of #8. And not just one or two. Give me a list of guys that fit this pattern. "Run out of town" only to come back to beat us (this is a stretch anyway, given that TEAMS beat other teams, not individual players) and/or win Super Bowls. I'm eager to see the long list ...
