Hes not worth resigning for more then 3 mil a year. Better options in the draft that will come at 1/4 the price. Him and Smith r the 2 guys i really didnt want miami to sign.
    I agree with this.
    Imo I'm not happy with him as our #2. Not at all.

I know, I know- the QB play was spotty at best and downright atrocious at worst in those years, but still. If you take another look at the highlight clips from last season you'll see that Hartline had the opportunity to score at least another 5 times. Tannehill overthrew him on a couple of those opportunities, but as CK recently said, at least part of that can and should be attributed to Hartline's lack of deep speed and Tannehill needing to be ridiculously precise due to it. Other times, Hartline simply failed to make any sort of play to get into the end zone when there was a clear chance to. For that matter, the one touchdown reception he did have almost wasn't one even though he was as wide open as any NFL receiver will ever be.
    Jordy Nelson only had 6 TDs his first 3 years in the league with one of the best QBs of our era throwing it to him, what explains that?

    Hartline is a little overrated on this site. He's a good player, but the slot would be best for him. If Jennings comes to Miami, he's taking #1 slot and honestly, I wouldn't be shocked if Matthews beats out Hartline for the #2 spot. Matthews is more talented than Hartline. He dropped down the draft because of his unimpressive 40 time but the guy has game speed and he has talent. This offseason is going to be huge for him.

    Yup, the ideal plan for me would be to sign Hartline for $4.5-5m and trade Bess for a second or third. We don't need them both, Hartline is much more versatile and I believe Bess' contract is up next season anyway

    Hartline is the opposite of a slot receiver. Long strides and tall. Bess runs crisp routes with short strides that create seperation. Hartline battled with Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie last year and won those battles... The kid has moves, and is a legit wideout. Do i want him at his asking price? No. But he'd be a nice complement to a guy like Megatron or AJ Green..

    I wouldn't call 5 catches for 82 yards with zero TD's in two games winning.

    Bess will absolutely NOT net you a 3rd. A team that has a very specific need might give you a 5th.

    Probably a combo of being a young WR (who often take time to develop) and Green Bay having "better" options at the time like a prime Greg Jennings, Jermichael Finley, and James Jones. I know people love to trot out the Jordy Nelson comparison with Hartline (I am guessing largely because he is also white), but the circumstances were different. The fact is, Nelson HAS put up at least one season where he got into the end zone a bunch. Before that, while his TD numbers were low, he did show the ability to run after the catch and outrun people sometimes. Hartline had what will most likely be a career season and still only scored once-barely at that.

    Is it possible that he could find the end zone 4-5 times? Sure. He hasn't demonstrated any sort of ability to do so, though, and for the team to shell out somewhere in the neighborhood of 5-6 million per year to find out isn't the wisest course of action, I'm afraid. I'd bet money he won't approach the catch and yardage numbers if the team has other options, also. So, let's just say for ****s and giggles that Hartline does score 5 TDs next season. He would probably do so with around 50 catches for about 700-some odd yards. Is that really worth that kind of money?

    If Wes Welker could net us a 2nd, Bess could too. Peyton Manning would make Davone Bess a pro bowler
