ESPN New York's Rich Cimini said "someone will get a great bargain" on impending free agent Dustin Keller, but it "probably won't be the Jets."

Keller played in just eight games in 2012 as he battled hamstring and ankle injuries, so that's expected to affect his price on the open market this offseason. The Jets "probably" won't get the bargain because they'll likely have to slap the franchise tag on Keller to keep him. Keller said in late December that he is "100 percent" opposed to the franchise tag, too. He'll be highly sought after as a solid red zone option and willing blocker.
