The Miami Dolphins have signed wide receiver Brian Hartline to a five-year deal, reportedly worth 30.8 million (12.5M guaranteed).Officially put that name on the line. Blessed to be a Dolphin for 5 more years. Now it's time to win some instagr.ampWmRqtVhup6 Brian Hartline (@brianhartline) March 8, 2013Hartline, the Dolphins' fourth-round pick in 2009, had the best season of his career in 2012 -- despite missing offseason and preseason workouts due to an emergency appendectomy and a calf injury -- catching 74 passes for 1,083. He became just the eighth receiver in Dolphins history surpass 1,000 yards in a season. He set franchise record with 253 yards receiving in a Week 4 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Over his four-year career in Miami, Hartline, 26, has caught 183 passes for 2,753 yards and scored seven touchdowns (1 rushing). Prior to the signing, the Dolphins had approximately 36 million in available cap space. While this signing will dent that amount, the team is still expected to make a run at Pittsburgh Steelers free-agent wide receiver Mike Wallace. Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings, who Dolphins coach Joe Philbin worked with previously, may also be a target. There are 10 Dolphins free agents unsigned, including Jake Long, Reggie Bush and Sean Smith. Players are allowed to start talking to other teams at 4 p.m. Saturday, but can't sign with another team until 4 p.m. Tuesday.
