WATCH:

Dustin Keller visiting the Patriots

National Football Post

With Rob Gronkowski limited a year ago, the Patriots could use some depth at the tight end position.

And it looks like they're covering their bases ont hat front. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, New England will meet with tight end Dustin Keller, a free agent who was last with the Dolphins.

Keller is recovering from a knee injury, where he tore all three ligaments and dislocated it. If brought on, it would mean New England's top two tight ends would be coming off major knee injuries.

The Patriots are familiar with Keller, being that he was with the Jets before the Dolphins. In five career seasons, Keller has 2,876 yards and 17 touchdowns.
