Brian Hartline, Dolphins agree to contract

The Dolphins are slowly but surely working their way toward signing all of their draft picks this summer and today another rookie is in the house, as they say, because receiver Brian Hartline has agreed to terms with the team.

The coming signing, first reported by Brian McIntyre on Mac's Football Blog, brings the number of Dolphins rookies who have either agreed to or signed their first NFL contracts to five, including both wide receivers.

Hartline's four-year contract could be worth just under $4 million if he reaches all his incentives and escalator clauses. The actual worth of the deal is more along the lines of $2.25 million with a guaranteed bonus in the $500,000 neighborhood.

No further financial details are currently available. The Dolphins will announce the signing once Hartline actually puts his signature on the document, which could by the end of this week.

Patrick Turner, John Nalbone, Andrew Gardner and JD Folsom have signed previously. This is good news but not exactly man-bites-dog stuff as the Dolphins have had all of their rookies signed by the end of the first weekend of training camp in each of the past two years.

General Manager Jeff Ireland continues to work to make certain the streak is extended to three consecutive years. The Dolphins take the field for their first training camp practice Aug. 2.

First-rounder Vontae Davis, second-rounders Pat White and Sean Smith and fifth-round pick Chris Clemons have yet to agree to deals.

By the way, if you followed on twitter you would have gotten the heads up that I had posted this blog seconds after I did it. You could have gotten it on your phone or blackberry device. I'd be more a part of your life! 

OK, so maybe that's more than you want. But you get the idea. Follow me on twitter.

I enjoy the efficiency of this group running the Dolphins now. Still getting used to this team being run properly again.

Can you imagine this group drafting Jason Allen? Can you imagine the guy holding out?

I don't know why they would care if a pick after the 5th overall would sign anyway. If they don't sign they don't play. One year out of football and it hurts big time.

Please tell me you're back from vacation. It's impossible to find anything worth reading when you're not blogging or writing.





details of the deal:


I agree that Jason Allen was a bad pick at 16th overall. HOWEVER, as Barry Jackson recently mentioned in one of his columns, football guru KC Joyner rated 98 NFL cornerbacks (based on film study, not opinion), and Jason Allen was the 55th rated corner. That means that at worst, he grades out as an average nickelback in the NFL. You can bash the fact that he was a 1st round pick, but the guy is a functional NFL player, dont talk about him like he's out of the league.

Barry Jackson is usually pretty goods. Better than we all. But that post about Jason Allen was full of poop. Mando would has never posted that garbage.

It's terribles your back from vacay Mando. Bad news foe us foe sure.


It's about freaking time you got back from vacation. I'm shocked there was a paper in my driveway every morning while you were gone -- not that it was worth reading without you.

Welcome back amigo.

Please check out my interview with WR Anthony Armstrong here:


Jesus.. Armando why did you have to come back and give us this garbage of a article..... i want to here about who did u bang on ur vacation...

cuban, who's your favorite dolphin beside ted ginn ?
soiled, what bread is your neigbhor's dog ?

Great Q red, my favorite air breathing mammal that spends its life in the ocean is flipper, which brings up the question, why cant porpoises be found in fresh waters????actually my favorite dolphin player is matt roth...

Dear Mr. Salguero

" You could have gotten it on your phone or blackberry device. I'd be more a part of your life!"

I'm not sure I like your tone Mr.Salguero

Blackberry, Twitter what are these things you speak of ?
I'm not really sure where this relationship is heading and I cant be just running off twittering with you all day.
But will promise you this, If you come to this Blog I will be here for you.

Lots of Man on Man appreciation.

Soiled :)

does the menace loves hunting ?
what do you hunt if you do ?

How about changing the twitter commercial to a signature line as some of us INTENTIONALLY avoid that s*** (stuff!)

Thanks and welcome back.

Dear mr. Red

"soiled, what bread is your neigbhor's dog ?"

I think its a Wonder Bread Dog or a Natures Harvest Whole wheat Dog.

Soiled :)

Dear Mr. Red

""soiled, what bread is your neigbhor's dog ?"

I think you mean what Breed.

I'm not sure if my neigbhors dog is Pork or Chicken.

Soiled :)

Aloco, no i hate hunting, i hate the fact that people hunt animals with guns, i say make it fair, hunt with your hands, or at least arm the animals with some type of weapon..(though animals are ill equipped because they don't possess thumbs, which makes it difficult to fire a weapon..)Next Q for the menace...

i am going to be on first date w/ woman friend,what is the best move to do to leave no doubt in her mind that i am in love just to get laid menace ?

Soiled, whats your opinion about twittering???

Dear Mr. Aloco

"i am going to be on first date w/ woman friend,what is the best move to do to leave no doubt in her mind that i am in love just to get laid menace ?"

Go to Hulu.com and search for the video "Dick in a box"

Soiled :)

Aloco, the best move is the old double reverse play my friend , aka running out of gas ....next Q for the cuban..

twittering only good for the sick person who wants to feel important and following some one else for crap .

Soiled, well done my messy bottomed friend...well done..

Dear Mr. Menace

"Soiled, whats your opinion about twittering???"

I can barely keep up with my own thoughts let alone following Mr. Salguero's daily thoughts.

Although I signed up its really not my thing.

Soiled :)

Agree with you soiled on the twitter thing, i personally think it's gay..(not that there's anything wrong with that..)

soiled ,did you ever used that box ? any thing else coming with it or just the D

cuban, did you notice any animal won't attack a human unless it was attacked first but humans go for hunting without prior notice ?

I hear the guy that played the "predator" is available, he'd be a good pick up on the free agency market, you know with that cannon on his shoulder he could be out of position and still render a wide out.. well he could kill him.. what are your thoughts?? i think he played for k.c last year he had 23 pass break ups and killed 5 receivers...

Yo menace

My cousin master told me to check you out

Aloco first date, woman must be blind

Dear Mr. Gorgedolphin

"soiled ,did you ever used that box "

Not till they invented Viagra.

Soiled :)

Menace, The predator can also be semi invisible to fool the quaterback as well

You ever see his women Leticia?
Yo when she wears the white cigarette pants with the white tank top and white pumps?
He doesn't know anything about the fins anyway.

You ask me? Pat White was the best football player in the draft, period. Not only can he run all the bubble screens that Wes Welker can, he can run every play that Reggie Bush does, better.

Great point ace...Sign him, though i wonder if his dreads would fit in a dolphin helmet??

so you got the box when they started to put the Viagra in it ?
did it help you and how did you use the D

Oh yeah, price master i know your cousin Master we went to the same school but 3 years apart, i think he took political science, i myself took something else, but we were in Manhattan just a year or two off from each other..tell him i said hi....

Dear Mr. Aloco

"so you got the box when they started to put the Viagra in it ?
did it help you and how did you use the D"

Dont play inocent with me, you and I both know we all have used the box trick you get that special someone at one time or another.

Soiled :)


ENOUGH with the twitter commercials.

Soiled, I used the old hole in the bottom of the popcorn bucket trick in high school...

but havent yoused it in 17 years...

Master price, ask him how the things are going on wall street....

Dear Mr. Menace

"Soiled, I used the old hole in the bottom of the popcorn bucket trick in high school..."

Ahhhh those where the days my friend, Those where the days.(Not the High school part, the part about the popcorn bucket)

Soiled :)

please soiled, we always look up to you for a person who never used that box .

Signing them all is step one. Step two will be more interesting, the competition phase. Making the team is step three. If Hartline does make the team, it'll be interesting to see if he can beat Bess, who all but made us forget Welker in just half a season. The team could use competition like that at every position.

Dear Mr. Aloco

"please soiled, we always look up to you for a person who never used that box"

It is a well known fact that useing the D in a box trick is acceptable on a second date.

ask any of your friends.

Soiled :)

OK kids the menace has 20 more minutes left, so shoot the Qs quick..

thanks soiled,please consider me one of your new fans.i have to go now ,see you tomorrow

Dear Mr. Aloco

"thanks soiled,please consider me one of your new fans.i have to go now ,see you tomorrow"

Hugs and kiss's
Just no reach arounds

Soiled :)

Soiled :)

sorry soiled bottom, i didn't see that.

Dear Mr. Soiled Bottom

I was tempted to ask Armando if Brian Hartline even has a chance to make the practice squad, let alone the team. However, in large part due to me being a kind and compassionate Norse God, I thought it best to let him get back to his tweetering as quickly as possible.

Mr. Bottom, my being a God and all, I'm not use to asking for advice. Just the same I find myself in a dilema. What does a man of your stature find more desireable?
A big fat women ugly as sin. Big hands for great massages. Keeps you warm on those cold nights. And of course cooks like a chef.
A cute little hottie dumb as a sack of rocks. A couple of D's that defy the laws of gravity. Legs like a gymnast, but, of course, can't even find a kitchen.

I suppose some would say I'm in a win win situation. Just looking for some objective clarity.

Cuban Menace

You will be missed.
Will we be able to "follow" you on tweeter?

Peace back at ya be-atch!!!!
