The Miami Dolphins, who entered free agency with more than $40 million in cap room, continue to be aggressive in Day 2 of free agency. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Miami will host free-agent tight end Dustin Keller for a visit Wednesday.

Miami’s interest in Keller makes sense. The Dolphins lost starting tight end Anthony Fasano to the Kansas City Chiefs and whiffed on Jared Cook, who was the top-rated tight end in free agency and signed with the St. Louis Rams. Keller is the next best tight end for Miami’s West Coast scheme.

This would be a double bonus for the Dolphins: Not only does it fill a big need for Miami, but it also dishes a blow to the division-rival New York Jets. The Jets would like to have Keller back next season but can't afford him due to a tight salary cap.

Keller has 241 career receptions and has been a reliable safety valve in New York for quarterback Mark Sanchez for five years. The Dolphins are checking to see Wednesday if Keller can do the same for second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
