VOTE FOR UK IN FH MARCH MADNESS
Hartline blows. Let him walk.
He's a #4 at best. Save the money Miami.
Why, golly... 6+ mil for 1 TD is howdy doody...
To those complaining, we can't afford to let all of our free agents go. Hartline was the most productive and cost effective FA we could keep at a position of need. What if we couldn't sign Wallace or Jennings and were stuck with Bess as our number 1 with a draft pick as #2. I could only imagine the bitching then.
Hartline is a safety measure. I don't think this takes us out of the running for Jennings or Wallace.
How does this take Jennings and Wallace off the table?
Hartline was going to be resigned all along. The chemistry he and Tannehill have isn't something you always see between qb and wr. Our WR core needed upgraded last year and it still needs upgraded. This just gives us a solid #2 to line up opposite Mike Wallace.
We will probably still draft a WR but there's no way we can rely on them to step right in, no way at all. We will still be active in FA IMO and should still land one of the two premiere WRs.
This worries me. He had 1,000 yard season as our number 1 receiver last year. Only 1 touchdown. We shipped Marshall out for dropping td passes etc.
Hartline is an average receiver at best and not worth 6 million a year.
