He deserves a $5-$7 million a year offer...he just needs to work on getting more TD's.

He and our young QB seem to have "clicked". Yes, keep him, and add a speed WR to take the top of the defense.
He can get about $5mil a year elsewhere with the way the WR market is going. The problem is he is worth more to us because he knows the system, has performed well in it and stands to be in an even better position with a guy like Wallace beside him. That's what I don't think a lot of people are getting.
The whole notion that we can somehow find someone that will exceed his value to us for $3mil from free agency or in the 3rd or 4th round of the draft is just the type of thinking that people have criticized the Dolphins for in recent past. It doesn't really work out like that.
"Coach Sparano assured us at the beginning of the week, they win the turnover battle, they win the game," guard Richie Incognito said. "And we went out there, turned the ball over."
Not a fan of resigning a mediocre receiver. I thought we wanted to make this team better.
* $3-4 mill would have been good value for Hartline, I believe we had an opportunity to make that happen last offseason but Ireland dropped the ball on that one
* $4.5-5.5 mill is fair value, its not a deal thats going to help or hurt tremendously, we're treading water making deals like this which is not great for a 7-9 team
* $6-7 mill is poor value and I like Hartline but it would be a mistake. Having said that, if I'm forced to throw away a million or two I would rather throw it away on Hartline than Legadu Nannee or Richard Marshall. So while it probably is a mistake, Ireland could certainly do worse...
