Hartline's deal

Recommended Posts

5 years for $31 million after only one good season in his career. Damn the Dolphins for skewing the value of wr's, at that rate we have been getting Smitty for quite a good price. If he is getting 6 a year, what do you think Wallace is going to demand?

He had one good year, and they're paying him like a proven guy. It's probably an overpay, but that's what you have to do to keep talent around your young quarterback.

yea i guess, and that one "good year" consisted of ONE touch down. It's not the fact they overpaid for him, well overpaid in the average fans eyes and most kinda expected, but what it does for other wr's who are twice the player he is and what they will be asking for.

Not sure how we have the right to laugh at them, when we thought the extensions to Godfrey, and Dwill were good deals.

The guy is young, has obvious chemistry with their QB of the future, and had 1100 yards, I don't think a average of 6 million a year for a reciever is a terrible deal. Even if they get Mike Wallace, this guy will be at least their #2 Wideout and on the field at all times, and he's making less then our backup running back(in a pass first league). We have no room to laugh.

Thread wasn't created to laugh at another team, but to see what people think it will do to other wr's expectations. He only scored one td last season, not that that tells the entire story but it probably will make it more difficult to sign quality players with some of these high contracts. Maybe not seeing that Rice and Foster both signed for less than Deangelo after the fact, but it could always be used in a players negotiation.

He's white? I didn't know that for some reason. Maybe cause I could not care any less about the Dolphins and Buckeyes. Is he like a possession guy or is he a burner?

Who was that sorry Ohio State WR they had for awhile? Robyski?

he is a good #2 WR, now Lafell is coming into a contract year. do yall think he is worth that?

I doubt Lafell will get that. If all goes as plans, Lafell will be playing 3rd/slot this year, and if Steve decides to stick around next year, he won't be getting #2 WR money.

The 1 td argument is ridiculous. I watched every second of every dolphins game. He was over thrown on wide open touch downs 4 times last year. Ryan Tannehill was either pressured or just missed him. Hartline is 6'2 200 pounds and runs a 4.4-4.5 40. Hes young, makes highlight catches, and broke the miami dolphins single game yard record last season against Arizona. This is a team that had the marks brothers, oj mcduffie, irving fryar, chris chambers etc. So thats pretty big.

He eclipsed 1k yards last year as a #1 WR, with #1 defenders covering him, with a rookie qb throwing him the ball. The deal is also established to only count about 3-4 mm against the cap this season, and the bulk of the money is paid in the back end of the contract, making the possibility of cutting him after year 3 a possibility if hes not meeting the expectations of his contract.

Its a good deal, he has chemistry with Tannehill, knows the offense, no drama off or on the field, and works hard. Ill take it all day every day.

Justify it how you must, and I'm not saying he is a bad player but in comparison, Smith's last contract was 4 years for $30, and you can't tell me those two guys are in the same ball park. I probably wouldn't have created the thread if we weren't in need of a WR, and possibly using FA to fill that void, and this contract, if used as leverage by other players, won't help our cause.

This isn't really to trash the Phins either, lord knows the silly contract D WIlliams received from us could be mocked this hard too, but didn't seem to hurt the Ravens or Texans when signing Rice and Foster because Foster signed for same while Rice was $10 million less and both are undoubtedly better players.
