@JeffDarlington Dolphins WR @brianhartline tells me he just signed his deal to stay in Miami: "It feels great to know the hard work has paid off."
@JeffDarlington Brian Hartline's deal is worth nearly $31 million over five years. He just left the team's facility moments ago after signing the deal.
@JeffDarlington Hartline: "It feels great to know perseverance has paid off. Now, it's about winning games. I feel like we're on right path. We're close."
@JeffDarlington Hartline is excited to see what else the team does during free agency, since the franchise has the cap space to make moves. Big week ahead.
@AdamHBeasley Text from Hartline: “So happy and blessed to be here in Miami. Now let’s go win some championships.”
Dolphins keep Brian Hartline
At a time when many expect the Dolphins to make a play for receiver Mike Wallace once free agency opens, they have finalized a deal to keep one of their most productive pass catchers on the team.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Dolphins have agreed to terms with receiver Brian Hartline.
It’s a five-year, $30.775 million contract, with $12.5 million in fully-guaranteed money.
A fourth-round pick in 2009 from Ohio State, Hartline had a career-best 74 catches for a career-high 1,083 yards in 2012. If the Dolphins land a field-stretcher like Wallace, those number could go up.
