    I'm all for keeping the guy. He wouldn't be a bad second option, probably slide to third option in a couple of years if we draft someone and they develop. At that rate, you could probably deal him somewhere. Free up the space and move on, because you wouldn't pay a third option that much, but until then, I'm fine with keeping him here. There's going to be a lot of change around Tanny. We should at least keep someone he had chemistry with at this level.

    When there's much better options out there, yes, it is thinking. Look I love Hartline, but if we could get a Jennings or a Harvin AND draft a receiver that can be better than Hartline? Sounds like a good deal to me.

    I think it's likely he comes back, his value isn't quite what he thinks it is in the free market. If he will be reasonable and budge off his asking price to under 6 mil I believe we will wrap him up. Now, if we sign both Wallace and Jennings, I sincerely doubt Hartline returns....

Hartline put up as many yards as he did, because Tannehill is very good at throwing sideline routes. Hartline requires a QB who can throw him open. If you put a dynamic player in those same situations, there would be enough separation for the WR to do some serious damage after the catch.
    People are going to have their opinion of Brian Hartline and people are going to have their opinion on Cordarrelle Patterson. I'm not force feeding opinions on either to anyone, least of all finfan54. I respect what he thinks of Cordarrelle and even share his fears to some degree. I also think well of Brian Hartline to some degree.

    My issue is just about a fair presentation of the facts and evidence. That's all.

    I think that's the thing that is understated whenever we see complaints about an overthrow or underthrow, etc. When you've got a guy with speed it's like throwing lawn darts into a bigger target circle. It's harder to miss.

    Hartline had a better season then all the so called big three wrs on the market. Plus showed he had the best timing woth a qb this team has scene in awhile. letting him walk to sign another player who hasn't proven to have an y chemistry with our qb would be just idiotic its fhe type of move that keeps us from winning jeff ireland is that you posting this

    Greg Jennings battled a hernia all year. That's not necessarily a clean comparison.

    And Mike Wallace had a better year period. I'll take 7 more touchdowns over 245 more yards any day. And so would most teams.

    I think Greg Jennings' contract could be modeled after the one signed by Anquan Boldin in 2010 with the Baltimore Ravens. And not only was that contract reasonable, one could easily argue in the negotiations process that Jennings should be paid less.

    1. Anquan Boldin was going to turn 30 years old in the upcoming NFL season, just like Greg Jennings. They were both 29, going on 30. In this, the two are similar.

    2. There's an argument that Greg Jennings has been made by the QBs throwing to him. Similarly, there was an argument that Anquan Boldin's downslope was being masked by the fact that he had Larry Fitzgerald opposite him and Larry drew all the defenses' attention. Boldin also had a pretty durn good quarterback throwing to him in Kurt Warner.

    3. Anquan Boldin's contract was 4 years, $29 million with $10 million guaranteed. That included a $6.125 million signing bonus, a $2.875 first year roster bonus, and another $1 million in guarantees elsewhere in the deal. The average was $7.25 million per year.

    4. Career-wise, the two were similar. Greg Jennings has 425 catches for 6537 yards and 53 touchdowns in 96 games. To that point in his career, Boldin had 586 catches for 7520 yards and 44 TDs in 95 games. Very similar, IMO...as the 1,000 extra yards balance against the 9 extra TDs.

    5. However, Anquan Boldin was not coming off an injured year, unlike Jennings. Boldin caught 84 balls for 1024 yards and 4 TDs in 2009. Jennings only caught 46 balls for 481 yards and 5 TDs in 10 games of 2012, counting playoffs. Boldin also caught 103 balls for 1228 yards and 12 TDs in 15 games en route to a Super Bowl appearance in 2008. Jennings only caught 71 balls for 989 yards and 9 TDs in 14 games counting the playoffs in 2011. All in all, that's 187 catches for 2252 yards and 16 TDs in the two seasons immediately preceding the new contract for Anquan Boldin, versus 117 catches for 1470 yards and 14 TDs for Greg Jennings. That's a pretty big factor.

    6. Should there be an inflation premium? Tough to say. The 2009 salary cap was $123 million. The 2010 season was uncapped, but most teams treated it like a capped year and the ones that did not were severely punished by Roger Goodell. When the salary cap was reinstituted in 2011, it was set to $120 million. There it remained in 2012, and it would appear it shall remain there in 2013 as well. If you're an NFL team you may even be able to argue that 2010 contracts are incomparable to 2013 contracts on the basis of there being no cap in 2010. That argument might not go over well, but the fact remains that because the NFLPA essentially "borrowed" in order to keep the 2011 salary cap at $120 million (should've been $116 million, just going off revenues) and to keep the 2012 cap at $120.6 million (should've been $113 million)...it means the 2014 salary cap is not actually going to go up much. The NFL projects that 2014 and 2015 salary caps should only be around $121-122 million. This means that contracts signed from 2009 to 2012 should be perfectly comparable to contracts negotiated in 2013...no inflation adjustment.

    Given all this there's actually a good chance that Greg Jennings' contract negotiations would come down to a price point that is similar to what Brian Hartline is currently asking. Brian Hartline wants 5 years, $33 million. That could actually be Greg Jennings' price point, except the deal would likely be shorter, around the same Boldin signed.

    If you're asking me whether I would take Greg Jennings or Brian Hartline at the same price...the answer is easy to me. And I don't think the Ravens regret giving Boldin that 4 year, $29 million deal.

    I've never seen Brian Hartline do this:

    If management listened to this board we'd never re-sign anyone. We'd have the lowest payroll in the league and we'd be even worse than we are. Good drafting would do us no good because we'd be letting the good ones walk every time contract renewal came up.
