If that's what he's asking, even if you strike out on Greg Jennings because he asks too much money or gets taken up by someone else, there are other options. Check into the health of Johnny Knox. He's actually pretty darn good. At least as good as Hartline, when healthy.
To those who are comparing Hartline, to Nelson's salary, I will respond by asking if Nelson will settle for 3.5 mill when he becomes an UFA? Highly unlikely.
Overall, Hartline has exceeded expectations since the day he was drafted, so I don't understand some of the derogatory remarks.
He was one of the few bright spots on the offense this past season. From all accounts he's a good teammate and team player.
The cynic knows the price of everything, but the value of nothing
Just because Hartline led our team in yards and is a nice guy and good teammate doesn't mean we should overpay for him. That is ridiculous.
Laurent Robinson scored 11 TD's as the #4 option in the Dallas passing game and got $6.5 million . . . . why should Hartline as the #1 option with 1 TD (3 in the past 3 seasons) get anything close to that?
Im out!!!! Hartline for 3-4 mil ok but more then that is crazy for a guy that has scored 3 Tds in 3 years. Would rather spend that money on a TE like Cook or Keller or a WR like Cribbs. Like some one else said for cheaper we could get a jonnhy knoxs type player.
And as far as the chemistry him and tanny have it can easily be transfered to Jennings or Wallace or Allen from the draft. Hartline didnt play a single preseason game and didnt practice until a week before the season and they build the chemistry quickly. With a whole offseason with jennings tanny can more then build a good chemistry with him before the season started.
PASSSS,lol his NOT worth 5/6 mill a yr. him & his agent are drunk. Maybe 2 million a yr. we need play maker, harline is roll player..THAT'S the FACT'S
DOMINATION & DEVASTATEION 72.:bling:
In between the 20's he's cool.....but redzone ??? - Put man-to-man press coverage on Hartline and it's a wrap - he's done.
He's not sniffing the end zone when an average, NFL, 195LB, CB is in his grill. Please prove me wrong. I'll wait.
