The Miami Dolphins had a vacancy at tight end after Anthony Fasano left in free agency for the Kansas City Chiefs Tuesday. Miami appears to have wasted no time filling that position as the team has signed tight end Dustin Keller to a one-year contract, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Less than 24 hours after the start of free agency, the Miami Dolphins continue to pursue some of the biggest names available in an unprecedented shopping spree for the franchise.
The Miami Dolphins gave it their best shot to land former Tennessee Titans tight end Jared Cook, but in the end the team couldn’t close the deal.

The Miami Dolphins enter the 2013 calendar year with plenty of questions surrounding a roster that over-performed at times and looked completely overmatched at others.
Frank Gore, Colin Kaepernick and Michael Crabtree pulled off the kind of grind-it-out win Jim Harbaugh wants to see during the December stretch run.

With tight end Charles Clay listed as probable for Sunday’s showdown against the 49ers, the Dolphins have another offensive weapon they can depend on as they fight to try and make it into the postseason.
The Dolphins don’t have any major injury concerns heading into Sunday’s AFC East showdown while the absence of a few New England players could affect the outcome of the game.
Although Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby continues to deal with a torn biceps injury, he’s still expected to play in Sunday’s game alongside other Miami players who will be fighting through pain.
After being put on notice, visiting Tennessee hopes to bounce back Sunday against a Miami Dolphins team looking to boost its playoff chances in the first of two games in a five-day stretch.
