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.

The Water Front is a classic. I can tell you have good taste when it comes to movies.

When a woman turns you on without getting naked, you know she's got what it takes. SOMETIMES it's SEXIER leaving a little to the imagination.


Greg Cote's been missing for the last week as well.
They could have been doing their own sequel to Brokeback Mountain.


I can't remember which one of you posted about the NT position(thanks to deletions).

We have Ferguson being backed up by Solia. Another guy is Luther Ellis. I don't know much about him, but I just came across this pre-draft SI.com profile:

BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer awarded all-Conference and All-America honors the past two years. Led the team in tackles as a senior, posting 64/20.5/8. Junior totals included 65/22.5/8. CIAA Defensive Player of the Year the past two seasons.

POSITIVES: Quick, wide-bodied lineman who dominated a lower level of competition. Plays with good pad level, quickly changes direction, and moves well laterally. Powerful, pushes defenders up the field, and makes a lot of plays on the football. Overwhelms opponents, and then defeats blocks on his way to the action. Consistently doubled by opponents. Quickly gets off the snap with a nice first step.

NEGATIVES: Displays poor hand technique and does not do a good job protect himself or disengaging from blocks once engaged at the point. Seems poorly conditioned, and does not consistently play with a sense of urgency. Marginal burst of closing speed.

ANALYSIS: Ellis is a physically talented lineman who was an outstanding small school player, and he possesses the skills to make an NFL roster. If he does what is necessary off-the-field to become a better football player, he could stick around the NFL for a while.


turner was just it in that movie when movies were made for enjoyment of humans not to make sure first that they can make a blastic chinease toys out of the movie to sell to the hurd .

one classic movie , i can't remember the name but it has jack nickleson,debra wenger and shirley.m/debra died in the end of that movie

Hang on tight. I will return after midnight.
After midnight I gonna let it all hang out

Terms of Endearment

Another classic

A lot has been made of the free-agent bust that wide receiver (soon-to-be tight end) Ernest Wilford has been to this point in his Dolphins career, but fellow 2008 free agent signee Reggie Torbor has similarly failed to provide any return on the Dolphins’ investment (six total tackles in 2008). Torbor was unable to beat out Akin Ayodele for a starting position in the Dolphins’ linebacker corps, a sign that the Dolphins needed an upgrade at the position. Torbor, who pocketed $4 million guaranteed when he signed in Miami, will feel even more pressure to perform with the return of Jason Taylor to Miami, which makes Miami’s linebacker group even more crowded than it was last year.

odinseye is the classic of this blog.

the officer and the gentlman.....debra and R.gere.......

the husler...pul newman.....a man whodid a lot of good.

the color of money.....classic b/c tom cruise didn't look like himself in that movie

I had a severe "kink" for Debra Winger in that movie!

Paul as the Hustler, one of my all time favorites for sure. I wanted to be just like him(lol).

From funniest quotes in Dolphin history.

18. "Who's he?" — Don Shula when the Jets took Ken O'Brien with the 24th pick in the 1983 draft, leaving Dan Marino for the Dolphins

22. "With Larry Shannon coming to our football team, by the way, he's probably a step faster than Randy Moss. So he's bigger, he's taller, he's faster." — Jimmy Johnson after passing on Moss in the 1998 draft

to catch a thief
my favorite wife....black and white
GARY GRANT THE best looking actor ever.funny guy in both movies,in catch a thief g.kelly looked like what women should look like not like today WOMEN IN MOVIES LOOK LIKE DIRTY STICKS

14. "We liked a couple of those receivers up there, but we didn't feel there was a guy that was going to come in and make more of a contribution than a linebacker." — Dave Wannstedt, on why he chose Eddie Moore over Anquan Boldin in the 2003 draft


you remember the rich guy who was playing a round of games at his house and lost a lot to paul and G.scott. that guy was a real good actor even if he was there only for a few minutes and scott was the man in that movie.

is this the coach w/ the mustche ?
i notice in football when the coach looks good and has nice hair like J.J they always suck and when their looks like scary like the currentcoach who has no hair and no mustch they do a better job.

Dear Mr. Salguero

It pains me to say this but I think we have a thief on the blog :(

It has come to my recent attention that several pages have come up missing from this article.

In general this would not worry me but I had left my winning lotto ticket on one of the pages that is missing.

Its quite a bit of change if you know what I mean, where talking felony theft.

This is what happens when you leave us unattended for to long.

Hope to hear from you soon and keep an eye out for my lottery ticket.

Soiled :)


I don't remember the rich guy?
I do remember another of my favorites, Jackie Gleason playing Minnesota Fats.

They Don't make movies like that anymore!


I agree. The hair and mustache ruined the Dolphins. I still remember hearing JJ replaced Shula. I was on highway 75 just south of Cincinati. I heard it on the radio. I thought JJ was good, but Don Shula he aint.


“It’s a mystery wrapped inside a riddle inside an enigma”.

Who said this? What movie?

if marino didn't look that good with his hair ,he may be w/ 2 rings now,ben the steelers QB looks scary and he has 2 rings and their coach isn't that good looking either.


Gopats Se trata de una nueva baja para usted!

Comparing Marino to Rothleisberger. Don't even try it. Other than the obvious things, Marino founded an autistic childrens hospital.
Ben on the other hand will probably buy his way out of being a registered sex offender.

Edgar Thompson-Palm Beach Post

Free-agent cornerback Eric Green doesn’t look like a player ready to give way to the Dolphins young corners - first-round pick Vontae Davis and second-rounder Sean Smith.

Lining up as the starting CB on the right side, opposite Will Allen, Green stood out during Thursday’s OTA. Green made nice plays to break up a pass to Ted Ginn Jr. in the flat and intercept another one to Ginn … each thrown by Chad Pennington.

“I’ve seen this progress from him daily,” Sparano said of Green. “He’s been in some really good positions out there and hadn’t quite finished the play, and today he finished a few of those plays.

“I see him around the ball. The ball comes to him a little bit.”

Armando this isn't the way you reported it. If it was just Thomson saying this that would be one thing. Sparano's quote makes you the odd man out.

The Rageing Bull----DeNero and Joe P---------------Slap Shot----Paul N

We keep you alive to row, so row well my friend and live----What movie????? A. S. We keep you employed to write, so write well my friend and stay employed!!

Look at the picture of Ben Roths. The bottom part of his face/head looks fatter than the top half. Kinda like a fathead or something. His head looks weird, just keep staring at it.

Rageing Bull.......out of this world..

when DeNero faced Joe.P about his wife........best acting ever,it feels real.

i hope we get more dirty news on ben the steelers QB so we can have more jokes coming.ace , do you know what's he accused of ?
remember he's not guilty until proven other wise.


I do no what he is guilty of. He still has a big head/face. Look at his lower face it is bigger tha Jay Leno's.

correction: I don't know


I always thought Ben looked like Will Ferrell in Night at the Roxbury.

Anybody know who Pat White's agent is?


Name a movie he was in that you didn't like.

Big ben is to pittsburgh as chad (96 inch neck ) henning is to the fish, except big bens got two super bowl rings...

has anyone mentioned pacino in scent of a woman? great movie. so was devil's advocate. Cuban henne hasn't had the chance to prove himself. and big ben had a monster defense. and wasn't brought in to a rebuilding team.

rebuilding this.how many years henne will sit on the sofa on the side line while sanchez,fallco and quinn are becoming big stars and we are talking about learning this and that my az.

I really don't care about Ben. I mean he is alright. What the heck, goofy Trent Dilfer has a ring, what a clown.

C.M, shut the H3LL up!

If a qb never gets a ring for his fans, he should vanish and his fans should shut H3LL up.

i learned a new english word today.......H3LL

What Sofa ,does Henne sits on a sofa during games ?
