The tight end position may not appear as a need at first glance.
However, Alex Smith and Benjamin Watson enter the 2013 offseason as free agents.
Not to mention Watson is 32 and Smith is 30, so getting slightly younger would only help.
Dustin Keller of the New York Jets is also a free agent this offseason.
Only 28 years old, Keller is easily one of pro football's most complete tight ends. The downside, though, was having Mark Sanchez as his quarterback from 2008 through 2011.
Keller still produced consistently and caught 120 passes for 1,502 yards and scored 10 touchdowns between 2010 and 2011. Plus, 60 percent of his receptions in that span went for a first down.
With his ability as a run blocker, Keller is perfect for Cleveland. The Jets have been a run-first offense with Shonn Greene in the backfield, and Keller acted as a sixth offensive lineman during his tenure as well.
New York ranked No. 9 (2008), No. 1 (2009) and No. 4 (2010) in rushing offense in Keller's first three seasons. Even this past year Gang Green was No. 12 in rushing offense.
Just imagine how effective Trent Richardson becomes with a complete player of Keller's ability in Cleveland's offense.
