 HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -The New York Jets signed tight end Dustin Keller, the 30th overall pick in the draft, to a multiyear contract Friday.
The signing leaves defensive end-linebacker Vernon Gholston, taken sixth overall, as the Jets' only unsigned draft pick. New York opens training camp next Thursday.
The speedy Keller caught 142 passes for 1,882 yards and 16 touchdowns for Purdue and will give the Jets a much-needed vertical threat. He also adds depth to the tight end spot for New York, which also has veterans Chris Baker and Bubba Franks, and A.J. Schable, Jason Pociask and James Dearth, primarily a long snapper, on the roster.
Also Friday, the Jets waived rookie cornerback Jonathan Zenon, an undrafted free agent from LSU.
