How in hell can DeSean jackson have a $3M cap number when he just signed a contract for 5 years and $47M with $15 guaranteed in march of last year.
His salary for 2013 is $6.75M
So strike him from the list because he is being paid more than Hartline is asking for.
I would sign Danny Amendola and say so long to Hartline. No way he is worth $5-$6 million with just one TD this past year.
In my mind Hartline could be worth a decent contract playing as a two but you have to get him help. I will pay somebody 5 million to catch 75-80 balls and 8 or so TDs. But I won't pay them that money to do what he did last year if you know what I mean? I think his value can be reached in terms of money if he has a legit 1 on the other side. Kind of like the idea of paying a number one 13 millioni if all he gets is double teams and therefore has little production because the opponent can shut down everything else. Just arguing the point that players maximize their value when the team is able to create a role for them that makes them succesful. Best example is I am not paying Welker a lot of money unless I have a QB/scheme of what the Patriots do. He still will be good but not near as good as he is there, therefore not worth the money. Patriots know this Welker knows this but Welker and his agent will probably find somebody that doesn't believe this and then he can either get paid or risk losing grasp of a potential Hall of Fame ending.
I think we are looking into this too much it isnt the base salary thats key its the guarenteed money
