    We will NOT Pay Jennings and Hartline AND get a first round receiver

    This claim is made with the premise that we will go sign one of the big 3:Jennings Wallace or Bowe.

    I just want to make this clear,if we pay one of the big 3, and if you want us to draft a first round receiver, we will not be paying Hartline.

    We will not be spending a first round pick to split snaps with Hartline for 4+ years.

    If you want to pay up Hartline then it will guaranteed be second rounder or lower in the draft for a wideout because you won't be paying Hartline 4-5 million in years 2-4 to be the third/fourth option receiver.



    Which is why I want Hartline to walk. I want to get Jennings or Wallace, draft Cordarrelle Patterson, and then also sign a cheap FA wr that can be serviceable and split snaps with Patterson for the first couple years.

    Go get Ramses Barden who is tall, fast and huge hands to split with Patterson on the far side.

    I would be fine with signing Jennings & Hartline, and using our 1st rd pick on a DB.

    I see your point but don't 100% agree. You need 4-5 WRs that can play in this league. Right now we have one, maybe two. I can see bringing in Jennings or Bowe and still signing Hartline and drafting a WR in top 3 rds. Personally I don't see a WR in this draft I would want to spend a top 12 pick on, but I would be ok with spending a 2nd or trading down and using a late 1st on one of the WRs. This front office has been known to spend several picks at one position to make sure they get what they want. So I don't think it is safe to say with 100% confidence that it CAN'T happen IMO.

    If we signed one of the big 3 WR's in FA I'd also like bring Hartline back, but no way for his asking price, he and TH17 have chemistry already. I don't trust CB's in the 1st round, I'd much rather go DE, a solid pass rush makes an average secondary better. Then go offense heavy for the rest of the draft

    You can't simply invest very single resource in WR. OP is right, FA+Hartline means no high pick WR.

    I think we'll still try to get a first round tight end though. If Eifert is there you have to, I may even reach for Ertz or try to trade down to get him.

    As far as receivers goes I always felt we would be going with Free Agent (Jennings), Matthews and Hartline as our 1, 2 and 3 receivers into training camp. Maybe draft Ryan Swope with a late third or fourth round pick.

    Id like to sign Jennings and let Hartline walk. Then draft 2 WRs. I really hope we can get Wheaton and Swope. Ill be doing back flips in my living room if that happens.

    Jennings seems like the right choice. He is a solid veteran that can still play, will be the cheapest of the 3, and we won't have to sign a long term deal. So I would resign Hartline and sign Jennings to a 2-3 year deal. Then draft a WR or two and they can eventually take Jennings place.

    Not in the least bit worried about signing Mike Wallace to a "long term" deal. He's 26 and one of the best playmakers in the NFL. If Miami wants to get playmakers like they continuously say, then they will pull the trigger.

    I still laugh at us not throwing a 2nd GB's way for jones. Mfer is a beast.
