After continued speculation throughout the offseason it appears Miami Dolphin’s star wide reciever Brian Hartline will remain a Dolphin for a few more years.
Affirming late Thursday, a source close to Hartline, confirmed a contract of 5 years and nearly $31 million. The deal includes $12.5 million guaranteed.
In just his fourth season last year, Hartline set personal bests in recieving totaling 74 receptions with 1,083 yards. With the Dolphins available cap room it seems practical for the Dolphins to align the Dolphins wide receiving core with a star like Mike Wallace. With the top 3 receivers for the Dolphins potentially including Wallace, Hartline, and Davone Bess, the young Ryan Tannehill will have plenty of options to throw to.
Other notable talks have accumulated throughout the day, as rumor has it the Dolphins are also interested in pursuing seasoned veteran Charles Woodson. After spending his last 7 years in Green Bay, the Packers eventually released Woodson after the 2012 season. It appears numerous teams including the New York Giants, and the New York Jets are also interested in Woodson’s services.
With the NFL free agency starting on March 12th, be ready for a heated week of free agency, as the Dolphins are on the clock to make some star signings.
