Wide receiver Brian Hartline and the Miami Dolphins reached
an agreement on a five-year, $31 million contract yesterday, according to Jeff Darlington of NFL.com.
After the news broke, Hartline expressed his excited in
working a deal out with the Dolphins:
"It feels great," Hartline said. "It feels
great to know hard work and perseverance is worth something. But now it's about
winning games. I think we're on the right path. I think we're close.
"I'm excited to see what happens in free agency. We
want to win. We're set up so we have cap room to make some moves, and that's
one way we can win football games. It's important. And the draft will be
important, too. It's exciting."
After several so-so years, Hartline broke out in 2012. The
wide out caught 74 passes for 1,083 yards and one touchdown for the Dolphins.
With Hartline back in the fold, the Dolphins will reportedly
continue look to address their wide receiver position this offseason. Miami’s
first choice is reportedly former Pittsburgh Steelers wide out Mike Wallace,
though they could also target former Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings.
