The biggest story surrounding the New York Jets is their quarterback situation. However, it doesn't really matter who is taking snaps behind center if you can't field a team around him.

Before the draft, the Jets pretty much needed an upgrade at every offensive position.

One of the more stable players on the Jets over the last four seasons has been tight end Dustin Keller. He has been a safety net for the Jets passing game and capable of picking up crucial first down's when needed.

Keller's inability to stay healthy last season showed how important he was to the team's offense as they completely struggled to move the ball down the field.

However this offseason, Keller jumped ship and joined the Miami Dolphins.

This left the Jets with another hole on their team. They re-signed Jeff Cumberland, but it appears as if they are going to try and find a better option to fill the hole that Keller has left.

According to Adam Schefter via Twitter, the Jets have invited Kellen Winslow to Jets minicamp.

Winslow gives the Jets the receiving tight end that Keller was and Cumberland isn't. Winslow has been a solid player in the NFL and a name that Mark Sanchez probably knows.

Over his nine seasons, Winslow has caught 438 passes for 4,848 yards and 23 touchdowns.

This is a good move for the Jets as they fill in the holes on their roster and start to turn things around. We are gonna have to wait and see who will be throwing the passes to Winslow.
