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.

Aloco's date last night: I picture two retarded people making out to Sea of Love. After eating dinner, kissing with dirty food in their mouth. One saying" I got you gift me date now. The girl says " ok sweet pee Ilove you make date now." Of course you have to say their lines while you bite your tongue to get the full effect of their speech. Aloco is a sick sob. He may be gopats you know.

The cuban will be live on the blog At 4 pm..Hopefully mando will quit playing with his twitter long enough to write a new blog..(but i dought it)

Sammo what are you doing saying chit about AFC/Justin. He has vastly improved in his posts of late. He only responded with the wmoen stuff because Fabio/Odiear said stories about women as well. AFC is doing better, more tests along the way before his final grade. He is at a B+ currently. Sammo stop it and find Leslie to date.


Chill out. You have rights to the name sammo. Other people can use 5ammo, snnnno, and samo. They are different than sammo. You cannot tell a guy not to use 5ammo as much as we cannot tell you not to use sammo. Everybody here can read and knows this. These 3 guys exist just like you Mayor of Munchkin Land.


The "overy smacker" bit was funny. Sounds painful for a woman. What do you think kara?

My first LOVE I cheated on at 17 we're still cool today. That girl I fell in love with and was with her for 5 years then she cheated on me while I was locked up.
My woman now is compeletly different than any I dated. The best part is I can be myself around her. The common Thing that they all have is they are all still my friends.
And I think that says alot about me.


Very good young grasshopper. Softer side of Justin. Shows your caring side. No need to mention being locked up. People will unfairly judge you. Nobody here will know it is true anyway. Just like Menace says he is a cop. We know he is a liar. More tests coming.

it's sunday and he still talking to himself. did i say i will be here around 4.00 pm .

cuban is a dentist

SAMMO what does wearing a size 13 has to do with the size of my johnson

Plus I don't live in the hood but I'm from the hood.

justin, do you like to play in the mud with me ,the tallest guy in this blog w/ 6.1

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


The cuban has arrived after a tough day patrolling the mall..lmfao..whats the 1st Q for the cuban????????

are you a captain in a female only jail menace ?tell the truth for once

I WISH............

The menace has a Q for the peeps, what do you think the air breathing mammals record will be this upcoming season???

do you know where can i find nice feta cheese in south florida menace ?

No idea, I'am in New York..


Try your local publix super market sammy..

Sammy, put down that pipe bro, drugs are bad for you..

Aloco, Where are you located??

cuban menace, my girl friend after i bought her a watch w/5 rare stones for 28 doll plus tax , she's cooking for me every day, is this Love or what ?

the city they name it twice ny ny

dont know aloco,Sounds like she's looking for another gift..

Your in new York????

When in the city so nice they named it twice i say go to carmaine's in the finaceal district.. good stuff, but its only dine in only..in fla, go to the fish house in key largo, local catch and they sell wholesale, in miami go to golden rulez off s.w 168th street, best seafood in the south, best hole in the wall rest. in maimi, is a toss up between Rodbenders in cutler ridge and Capt.s tavern in kendall, any of these place's the menace recomends.. What's the next question for the cuban?>???

i am looking for a plumber w/ good flat rate not an hourly rate. some how hourly guys never leaves

As the FINS build for the future.You can't but help thik about the present and the product that is about to take over the AFC East.Top to bottom I feel the FINS match up well against any team you can put up. But that's only on paper.They have to be better and I'm sure they will be.Last year was mostly expermints gone good.
Plus Lady Luck shined on us a little bit.

CROWDER:First year starter.NOT BAD AT ALL.At times he blew coverages and missed some tackls but he was a stand out and I'm sure in the 2nd year he will be better.I think he can be that next GREAT FINS LINEBACKER.And by that I mean that LEADER who the D takes after.

MERLING, LANGFORD:Played well enough to be this years starters with great upsides I think they will be there for years to come.

JOEY and JASON Maybe on their last legs but they both have 2 good years left.They will play their @ss off because they see a lite.

ROTH: First year starter plus learning a new position he did better than expected.I liked him since Iowa and think he can make alot of plays. Even when he is not the one making the play he's always around the ball.

Wake: He has great coaches to learn from and great players to imulate and he has that hunger to prove that he belongs.

WILSON and BELL:Two hard hitting Safties in the same back field.This could make any player scared to cross the middle.I say we will see more BIG HITS than ever before.Be ready for the OHHH Shi+.

JASON ALLEN:I think the light turns on. I don't Know why but I think 2 years in the same position will help him.I want to like him like I want to LIKE EVERYONE up here but like some up here he just don't get it.

WILL ALLEN:OK did well but I feel he's over rated. I hope he has a better year.He broke up plays but it will be nice to have that corner with 8 ints.Good tackler and instincts,but I never really thought he was that good.

davis and smith:The unknown potintial is scary in that they can become MADISON or SURTAIN or ALLEN and FLETCHER.Here's to wishing they become better than MADISON and SURTAIN.

Though the Patsies have gotten much better they also gotten older. Brady's return will indeed make them better however their troubles were on the D side of the ball.They have lost players in the past and all the time someone else would step in,and I expect the same this year.But this time we gotten better also.I don't feel we will be on our backs looking up but on our feet looking down.

THE FINS can win both games by shorting the game. Keeping Brady on the sideline and keeping the ball on long drives. They had problems keeping their QBs from getting sacked last year and they return their starters. The same ones that let Brady get hurt in the first place.If he has time then he will pick us apart.I can't see him getting that kind of time.

We will not creep up on no one this year but I do believe that we can stand toe to toe with any one.



Justin, What about Ted(oops) Ginn Jr. and his clipboard holding daddy, and lets not forget Rufus (the human blocking dummy) ginn and teddys lil sister Tednisha(quick time) ginn, hats there future?? do you want to know mine??

**Breaking News**

This just in:

Sources close to the Dolphins three amigos have reported that the teams 2009 Top draft picks Davis, White, Smtih and Clemmons have all still not signed.


Dear Mr. Salguero

This article is now 10 pages of posts long.(mission acomplished)
Where's the new article ?

Is your typewriter broken, is the ribbon ok ?
A little 3 in 1 oil is good for the keys.

Is your internet connection working ?
Have you paid the cable bill ?

Are you being held againt your will ?(blink once for yes and twice for no)

Has the company downsized you ? Maybe we could work together collecting unemployment.

Are you in a witness protection program ? My baby sister says they cleared all her felonies and give you a fresh start.

You duckin the landlord ? I told him you were visiting the folks for a few weeks.

Is your Calendar not working ?
Is everyone still on a smoke break ?

Anyhoo just wondering

Soiled :)

i admit i was out of line . i hit a 500 dollar lotto ticket and went a bit overboard on the celebration. im a big enough man ( insert joke here) to admit i was wrong. now to football what do you all think our top three picks will sign for? and when?

Maybe they'll send a picture of him (and then the herald could update his photo since that picture looks like it's his high school picture) before they lob off his head..Mandos more secretive of his identity then the late Howard Hughs..

40 years ago man first steped on the moon......

some people believe the moon landing was a hoax .
what cuban thinks.do you know that the first man landed on the moon armstrong is and still a jet fan .


Did you know that I was and still am someone who can't stand the Jets and their annoying fans? Go figure.


FIVE HUNDO! No apology needed. Your REQUIRED to get out of line a little.
You ever hear to the best of laid plans? That one last bolt you can't quite reach? Stick in the mud? Fly in the ointment?
That's the feeling I'm starting to get. What do we have, less than two weeks to get these guys signed?

odinseye, they will sign , it's not a big deal, it's not not like you worry about STEVE YOUNG...they are are 3 little players will be playing in the mud soon ....cool down my friend and don't over react to 3 to be soon lousy to ok players.

Cuban Menace

I think this is an act of Godell sponsored state terrorism being carried out by his henchmen Mini-me-cheat.
Apparently Mando knows more about the new wildcat wrinkles than he's been letting on.

PS your right about needing a new photo. I don't care if they take it AFTER lobbing his head off.


Any more word on the Dolphins' interest in signing Ronnie to an extension?



Your right bro, thanks for helping me regain some perspective. I need to calm down. Do you think Xanax works well with Dark Rum? Either way, it's nice to know that I have people out there that care.
Where are you posting from the library? I heard your girl threw you and your cheap jewelry out.


Much like Sammo, I hit the lottery myself this weekend. A lottery of sorts. It felt like a one in a million night. I've been accused of having my tongue in cheek, among other things lately, but I say this with the utmost respect and sincerity.
Anyway, after having two very good friends stay the night, one had to leave to take care of some business. The other welcomely stayed on for another night. The problems started when girl number one rejoined us later that night. The green eyed monster called jealousy reared it's ugly head. The night was nearly a complete waste. I say this in all seriousness Kara, I was devastated. I really love both of my friends very much and I'm not sure what to do.
I could ues the input from the caring compassionate womanly perspective.

why i feel odinseye always has soap in his hands most the time he posts .my girl friend hit the real lottery when i got her a watch w/ real stones last week.


Sports Illustrated's website is reporting that singer Marc Anthony might be brought on as the next Dolphins minority owner.

To some this is an interesting window into the mentality of the Dolphin's new owner Stephen Ross as well as a fascinating example of how the business sides of sports and entertainment intermix.

To others this is just the latest circus sideshow that Ross has brought to down. Not only is this not 'real' sports news. This kind of 'Access Hollywood' celebrity of the week stuff actually makes a mockery of Parcells-style old school football.

Whatever your views on this interesting wrinkle, one thing all Dolphins fans can agree on is that it would be nice if South Florida's most tenured Dolphins Columnists would type a couple of sentences on it.

After all Armando regaled us with the details of the team's signing of its fourth round pick. Why not mention the not unnewsworthy story about whether or not the team's owner is prosituting the Dolphin's rich football tradition when he turns the team into a playpen for the a celbrity-elite clientale.

I pray for all of those Dolphins fans who only have Armando to count on for their Dolphins-related news. Would Armando have bothered reporting on the moon-landing forty years ago? Or would he have merely been content to forward Neil Armstrong's Tweets.



You got it all wrong. Using soap only leads to sensitivity and premature problems. Besides you have to keep reloading.
Be like a Man. A good Norse Warrior uses solid petroleum based lubes.

I got to get back to work. I shall return.

Guys,mando is being held by AL-Qaeda in the Paterson New jersey area, attempting to operate a strike force to rescue mando but not sure what he looks like(being that photo of his was from his jr. year in high school) Does anyone have a photo of mando to help in his rescue???Time is a factor guys...

Gary, go to sleep , if some one has money he's welcome, the dolphins is a pro sport team not a homeless shelter.....dolphins lucky to have people willing to buy in to a team that suck .

Even mrs. Mando is not sure what he looks like...


You misread my post. Just because I wrote that some people might find Ross's catering to celebrities offensive, does not mean that I agree with it.

In fact, I believe a reasonable case can be made that in a fragmented entertainment culture like South Florida, you have to pull out all of the stops to keep people's attentions (and wallets) focussed on the NFL.

Look at Los Angeles. Another entertainment mecca -- filled with beautiful people more interested in looking at other beautiful people. L.A. has vibrant non sporting entertainment and tourism indusry that does not require the NFL in the slightest. Even hardcore football fans don't need the NFL -- they can just buy tickets to USC home gamces.

The parallels to the Miami area (true the Canes are in a down cycle, but a traditional power won't stay down long) are striking.


I heard through the grapevine that you are a cop. Will you be leading the Armando rescue mission. We need someone with high-end tactical training.

I keep having visions of Armando trapped in a dark cell for weeks, only to briefly slip his bonds, disable two of his captors and make it a computer.

Yet, when he finally has his one chacne to contact the outside wirld and call for help -- his journalistic training kicks in and he instead uses the opportunity to post an update on Brian Hartline's contract negotiations.

Let's all tip our glasses to professionalism.

Gary, Yes I'll be leading this rescue mission along with my good friend nj phin fan, his knowledge of the sewer lines in jersey will be priceless, along with him we'll be joined by Afc east champs/justin credable his specialities being that he's repressed and wants to kick some azz, also joining us will be Nathanel doddsworth with his intellect we should be able to bring mando back home... It least his head that is....

Any other volunteers ????

Gary, yes i'll be leading the rescue mission along with nj phin fan who's knowledge of the sewer system in jersy will be helpful, along with us will be afc east champs/justin credible who wants to kick some azz for being repressed, so wish us well, hopefully we'll bring mando back... at least his head..

Mando You out there???
