If not re-signing BH stunts the development of RT than he was never the QB we all hoped he was. Keeping the same OC and HC has the biggest impact on rookie/young developing QB's. Adding Jennings, Cook and a draft pick will bring his development along fine in other words surround him with talent. Using BH money to sign A.Levitre and moving R.Incognito to RG further helps RT and his development. Wasting 6.5 mil on a guy that will get 700yards and a maximum of 2/3 td's does what? Nothing more than what a rookie can do.
Don't get me wrong here, I'd love to re-sign BH. I think he's talented and plays well for what he is but that does not mean bring him back at twice what his production is worth. That's just a quick way to becoming the NYJest.

not resigning hartline off his one and only season with tannehill is not what i'd consider wreckless considering hartline doesn't offer much rac or red zone win ability...of course miami is gonna have to find a solid replacement and hopefully upgrade at wr in free agency should hartline not return...
i'm thinking hartline will be a fallback option in case some things fall thru in free agency...
but wreckless off one season with what hartline brings to the table is a bit of a stretch
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
why the hell do people honestly even consider bringing him back for anything more than 3 million a year? he is allergic to the end zone. He hasn't scored more than one touchdown in a season since his rookie year when Pennington was QB. Yeah lets give him 6 million a year, a million for every touchdown he has scored in his career. The fact that he scored 1 touchdown on 72 catches is downright pathetic. And I don't care if he had 1000 yards. If you have 70 catches and don't get atleast 900 yards you are a complete scrub. The only "Chemistry" Tannheill had with Hartline is that he was the only WR on our roster that belonged in the NFL. ( I love bess in the slot but with his 4.7 40 he simply cannot play on the outside). Anyone, off the top of your head name a receiever who has had over 70 catches and 1000 yards and scored only 1 touchdown... And if anyone remembers, his one touchdown this year came on a blown coverage and he almost got hawked at the 1 yard line.
I like B-Hart but as others stated, for that money we could sign jennings and put up a few more mil for speed
Laurent Robinson gets that much??? Hahaha.. He's garbage.
I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
I think a lot of dolphin fans are selling Hartline short. Yes he needs to score for TDs but last season he played against the other teams top CB and still caught 74 Receptions for over 1K yards, averaging over 14.5 YPC. For his career he has averaged 15 YPC. He runs great routes and has great hands he's also extremely quarterback friendly. He's still just 26 years old with his best years in front of him. As others have pointed out already in today's market his not asking us to break the bank. It's my hope that the team and he come to an agreement and he retires a Dolphin.
