No. 1 Dolphins free agent must re-sign? Brian Hartline

The most important Dolphins free agent for the team this offseason? You could argue Randy Starks. Some believe it is Jake Long, although I totally disagree there. Other think Sean Smith, although I see him as very inconsistent and wonder how he'll react to getting paid.

Nope, I believe it's receiver Brian Hartline.

As I write in my column in Sunday's Miami Herald, the Dolphins cannot have a second consecutive season in which they lose wide receiver talent. They need to add at that position and, frankly, Hartline is a certainty while players such as Mike Wallace and Greg Jennings are not.

The fact is neither we nor the Dolphins know exactly what will become of Wallace and Jennings before free agency begins. Yes, they're slated to be UFAs. Yes, they would add talent to Miami's needy offense.

But we cannot be certain they'll be available because free agency doesn't begin until the middle of March. And teams have a window during which they can sign their own free agents. And most good teams don't lose their good players.

So no one knows if Wallace or Jennings will be availabe. The Dolphins do know Hartline is a good player and is available now. My column lets Hartline talk about his feelings on returning to Miami and how he'd feel if the Dolphins don't re-sign before the start of free agency.

Hartlne, by the way, agrees with me that Miami can't be losing WR talent and hoping to get better. 

“As a football guy, to get rid of your leading receiver in back-to-back years. I think that would be tough," he told me. "It’s tough to do. And I understand, they’re in a tough situation and I’m not in a position to say how to do it. I don’t do that. That’s not my job. But that’s hard to do as a franchise if you want to build something. If it costs a little more than you expected, well, that’s the nature of the NFL sometimes.”

A lot of fans often get caught up in the free agency trap of arguing about what a player is not. We all know Hartline is not a No. 1 receiver.

But good teams focus on what players are. Hartline is a good No. 2 wide receiver and if he's you're No. 3 you have a stellar WR corps.

What else is Hartline?

He can play any WR position because he knows them all. He's good in the locker room. He isn’t high-maintenance. Yes, he had one instance where he got frustrated with a coach who was asking him what he saw on the field and because he had already explained himself previously and still the ball wasn’t coming to him, Hartline shut down and simply didn’t talk.

But that was one passing moment this year. He doesn’t jack up the quarterback on the sideline. He doesn’t threaten to punch coaches if they don’t get him the ball, as one previous Dolphins receiver did in 2010.

“I was wrong but you have to let how to handle it,” Hartline said. “I understand now that  I was acting hard-headed because it was a game situation. I was frustrated. It happened once because it’s a passionate sport. But it won’t happen again. It was wrong because you need to learn how to handle it. I didn’t blow up on anybody but wasn’t helping anybody so I’ve learned from that.”

Hartline wants to be signed by the time free agency opens. The ball is in Miami's court. Once free agency begins the ball is in Hartline's court.

“You know, I tell you what, if I do go elsewhere, I’ll tell you what I told Jeff [Ireland]: If we get to free agency, as much as you guys interview me, I’m going to be interviewing you," Hartline said. "Like we’re 7-9. How do you see us getting better? I want to know, too. I want to win. I need to win. That’s what I’d do with other teams, too. I’m going to interview them as much as they want to interview me.

“I want to see myself buying into wherever I see myself at – here, there, wherever. Once I buy in, I’m all in. I want don’t want to be doubting people. I know there are trusts that build over time. But as much as they’re buying into me, I’m buying into you.”

Whatever happens -- whether Miami signs Hartline before free agency or not -- the receiver understands the next couple of months will be busy.

“It’s going to hectic," he said.

One other point:

If you watched the Ravens game, you'll realize we don't have anybody who did what Boldin did for the Ravens yesterday. NOBODY. He made a top 15 QB look good. The catches he made deep and in the end zone for the last touchdown....those would have been incopmletions on our team. THAT's what we need to add. We have nobody right now who makes those catches.

Dashi, yesterday by Flacco was one of the most unimpressive performances by a vet QB in a winning playoff game that I could remember. One 50 yards pass play on his resume was a 3 yard screen pass to ray Rice that he did what Ray Rice does so well (and we have a similar weapon in Bush when used properly and why he should be re-signed). And 95% of Boldin's yards were jump balls where he just out MANNED his opponent bu the defender had just as much chance for that pass.

This guy is defeinitely the beneficiary of having an elite supporting cast. Even his TE's are very underrated and part of that excellent 2010 TE class that Ireland completely whiffed on by drafting 38 linebackers.

The Pats Defense has not been anything special the last few years. Tannehill getting SHUT OUT by them speaks volumes about his incompetence. Heck, I rememeber Henne putting up 35 against them. I wouldnt throw in the towel on Tanny just yet but it isnt looking good. If they're convinced Moore isnt the guy then they need to draft another QB even if its not in the 1st rd. Turn a blind eye to Tanny's short comings and we'll have another Hennelike 4years.

Something tells me that he doesn't have the same recovery ability of Adrian Peterson (no one does) & will start the season on the PUP.

Dashi/Mark/Kris/Craig,

Dashi, difference b/w RG3 and Tannehill is RG3 was INJURED (not just hurt). I wouldn't have been ok with us having T'hill do the read-option when he was coming back from his leg injury.

But I'm fine with Shanny's decision to play RG3, but I'm NOT fine with him making the decision to go to Cousins in the 2nd half when it was obvious RG3 was limping and not mobile enough. He could have given Cousins a chance to warm up a bit instead of just throwing him in at the end of the game to try to lead a comeback in a Playoff game.

On the long-term though, agree w/Mark/Craig. Read-option (like the Wildcat) is a cute gimmick that's stumping some defenses right now, but eventually they'll get it, and the reason why you can't use it as a base offense in the NFL is you're QB will take too much punishment (that most can't withstand over 16 games).

MiamiD20,

You're not sold on Wilson? Despite the years that Luck and RGIII had, Wilson would be my ROY. He beat out an expensive FA from day one. He's mobile, efficient and has a surprisingly good arm. He'll beat you with his smarts and his legs and he doesn't take the hits that RGIII does. The Seahawks are riding this kid right now because they REALLY believe in him. It's the ideal situation and hopefully the situation we have here in Miami with Tannehill.

On top of all that, if you watched the game yesterday he was downfield throwing blocks for his teamates. How often do you see a QB doing that? You gotta love this kid!!....you just gotta.

Mark, I know it is inviting critique, if not outright sheer contempt here, if the OL attendant needs are discussed. And while I sympathize with those who want the fastest of the fast for WRs and the biggest of the big for TEs, it simply is more than beyond imagination to expect that this year. I'd be better off going to a fantasy football blog if I wanted to talk about those things.

I'm thinking the Dolphins this year have a plan, courtesy of J. Philbin, of who, where, why, how and when they will get their guys. Ignoring that is setting oneself up for disappointment.

And I agree with your remarks to Kris.

Craig, agree on Boldin (that's why I wanted him when he was available). The guy is just a gamer, and catches everything. Doesn't have the speed, but who needs it when you're draped with 2-3 defenders and STILL come down with the ball.

However, that long pass to him was beautiful by Flacco, which is the 1 thing he does well. Hopefully Tannehill one day has that level of touch on a long ball.

Russell Wilson is the Truth!

"If you watched the Ravens game, you'll realize we don't have anybody who did what Boldin did for the Ravens yesterday. NOBODY. He made a top 15 QB look good. The catches he made deep and in the end zone for the last touchdown....those would have been incopmletions on our team. THAT's what we need to add. We have nobody right now who makes those catches."

Craig,

No doubt about it. Obviously we are in great need a playmaker at WR who can make the big plays & score TD's.


Interesting to see Chip Kelly do the dance again with the Eagles, Browns and Bills after doing the dance last year with NFL teams. There's talk out there this morning that the only team this guy might give up his gig for is NE. Tells me this guy is an OPPORTUNIST and not a great NFL HC. Smells like Saban all over again. I wouldn't touch this guy with a ten foot pole. He'd show up for a year or two, realize it's too hard, and then bail back to College to whatever College program pays him the most. No thanks.

We should have been 9-7 GOD DAMN IT. Our kicker f#cked us real bad.

RGIII was a victim of criminal negligence yesterday and Shanahack should be *prosecuted*. I called it in the FIRST quarter. It was obvious his knee was majorly f#cked.

WHDPs,

I believe Jennings is that guy. I'm all in for drafting a kid first or 2nd round at WR, but we need that vet who can get it done when it's needed. I like Hartline and I'd bring him back at the right price but Jennnings is probably atop my wish list this offseason, awesome he's healthy again.

Only guy I want to see more of is Hunter from Tennessee. I need to see more to find out what this kid is capable of. Could be a star in the right offence.

If you guys knew my twitter, which I'll not share with you, I'd prove it. I was tweeting in the first quarter that RGIII needed to sit. What a dumb#ss Shanahack is.

RGIII got them up 14-0. Then you bring in Cousins, who showed he can do the job anyway. And let RGIII live to fight another day.

As Jason Cole once told me, head ball coaches are not rocket scientists. (Mando confirmed this assessment earlier this year.)

Should have said, 'ASSUMING he's healthy again'.

How come other teams can get a RB in the 6th round who runs for 1600 yards and we spend THREE picks on Daniel "Bust" Thomas???????????????????????? God damn it!!!

Now they are blaming the TURF at Fed EX field yesterday. It's everybody's fault but Shanahan's. INCREDIBLE!! There's one guy to blame.....ONE!

Craig M@10:02: good points on Boldin. I was so hoping that Miami would get him when he was available. But, I'm thinking we have our own Boldin in Matthews. He's an inch shorter and about 5 lbs lighter but has the same hands and jumping ability. He demonstrates that same tenacity and toughness that Boldin brings. Hope he develops so that he doesn't take on some of the less admirable traits of Boldin.

"You're not sold on Wilson? Despite the years that Luck and RGIII had, Wilson would be my ROY. He beat out an expensive FA from day one. He's mobile, efficient and has a surprisingly good arm.

Couldn't agree more about Wilson as a player but I'd go with Luck for ROY who didn't have a great O-line or a great running game. W/o Lynch & that O-line Wilson would have struggled.

Everyone questioned Wilson's height coming out of Wisconsin. I thought if Brees could do it who is an inch taller than why can't Wilson??? BUT I didn't think he'd start or play this well right away.

The GM & Pete Carroll have built a solid football team up there in Seattle.

Jim Irsay on his team:


"It's been an incredible, incredible year," Irsay said as he stood outside the team's locker room. "In 40 years, I haven't seen one like it. I really haven't."


I guess Irsay was on a desert island somewhere back in 2008, when the Dolphins went from 1-15 to 11-5. Sometimes owners and players can say the DUMBEST things.

The issue is not whether Shanahack should be fired. That much is clear. The issue is whether he should be *prosecuted* and thrown in prison. I'm leaning towards a "yes" on that issue.

How ca anyone not be sold on Wilson?? he was the best BY FAR! He is playing with the most poise, running intelligently, making the passes and limiting the mistakes. he started off slow this year but the way he is playing - he truly is playing like a 5 year vet. He is easily the rookie of the year. He does not make the numerous mistakes Luck does and does not entirely depend on the run like Washington does with RG3. he is playing QB the way a super bowl QB plays and he is doing it in year one. Too bad he is only 5'10 or he would've been our QB. Oh well, life as a Dolphan...

billcale,

I like Matthews a lot too. I'm not ready to call him the next Boldin at this point. When he consistently makes catches like Boldin did yesterday then I'll agree. Ravens defence played really well yesterday but Boldin went out in the second half and grabbed that game for the Ravens.

Hey for once me and Craig M are in agreement!! I'm not a Redskins or RGIII fan. I'm a Fins fan for life, but I *respect* RGIII and the NFL in general and it was painful to watch RgIII yesterday. It was clear he should not have been playing in the 1st quarter. It was very frustrating to see that.

Not to mention Cousins put up a 130 rating and 56 points the one game he played. Let him play with the 14 point cushion and let RGIII live to fight another day.

Obviously. Jeezes is Shanahan dumb.

"I believe Jennings is that guy. I'm all in for drafting a kid first or 2nd round at WR, but we need that vet who can get it done when it's needed. I like Hartline and I'd bring him back at the right price but Jennnings is probably atop my wish list this offseason, awesome he's healthy again.

Craig,

I think Jennings is the perfect fit. He knows the offense & he knows our coaches. He comes from a winning organization & he doesn't have the potential 'wrong fit' that Marshall had. Although the idea of having a true burner like Wallace (who is younger) is VERY tempting I believe Jennings is a safer bet.

GB is loaded at WR with Cobb, Nelson, & Jones so they're letting Jennings become a FA. The Steelers still might franchise Wallace.

Jim Irsay is pure, unadulterated, unmitigated, unabridged GARBAGE. That is all. Pure garbage. Lesser than roach poop.

Anyone know anything about the new Bill HC (Marrone or whatever his name is)? Is he a OC/DC? I think he was a college coach last year (Syracuse or something). And he had a .500 record. Doesn't sound too impressive (which is good for us).

Assuming that Moore leaves(highly likely) and Tannehill has another poor year,then what? The QB has a huge correlation to a teams performance. We'll be lost in space again?

WHDPs,

We can get our 'burner' in the draft. I've been banging the drum loudly for a pass rusher in the first eound but I wouldn't be upset if we landed a guy like Hunter in the first....if he's the guy I think he is.

It's not my first choice but we've got to get some weapons for this kid and this offence. Btw, the TE Allen looks like a real keeper in Indy. Another guy that would have helped this offence.

Yeah, Craig, agree @10:36 that Boldin took over the game. How do the Ravens come up with plays for a 6'1" WR, going deep as a 4.72/40 speedster? Must boggle the mind of most Dolphans, no? LOL

How ca anyone not be sold on Wilson?? he was the best BY FAR!

Too bad he is only 5'10 or he would've been our QB. Oh well, life as a Dolphan...

Mark,

First of all Russell is closer to 5'11. Luck does not have the O-line & running game that Russell or RG3 has/had. Luck had to put that team on his back. Luck is the best QB from this draft & since I don't believe RG3 can stay healthy the way he plays, I believe Luck will go on to have the best career.

Irsay was OBVIOUSLY referring to Pagano's illness, as well as the turnover on his roster, the QB changing of the guard etc when he was referring to the past season.

Jesus Craig. If it's not spelled out for you word for word you don't understand anything!

2-14 or 1-15 to 11-5 is really how much different?

When you factor in the Manning drama, revamping 75% of the roster, the coaches illness.....Indy's accomplishment is more than the phins! That's just being objective!

The colts didn't have the luxury of a cake walk schedule that Miami had in 2008 either. It's not people say the dumbest things, It's dumb people who hear or read things.

DC,

Don't know if he's an offensive or defensive guy but there were a few teams interested in him. The teams record over four years wasn't impressive but I'm sure Syracuse has a hard time attracting top talent. So I'd say he's a bit of an UNKNOWN. Good be a good pick for them....could be another one of their mediocre picks (Jauron, Gailey etc....). The fact other teams ere interested tells me he has something.

Cartman, that's the Shanahan system. He's done it before: Terrell Davis. I would run for over 1,000 in that system.

Craig, if you were Chip Kelly would you really leave a multi million dollar job and attract the best players in the country to put your career in the hands of Nick Foles or Brandon Weeden??

I thought Buffalo made a really smart hire - eerily similar to our Joe Philbin. I guess Buffalo people weren't just paying lip service when they said they wanted their very own Joe Philbin and admired the progress our organization made last year when it didn't have much cache in the "money" coaches circle.

I'm sure you cant fathom it Craig but NOT EVERYONE is watching our Dolfins. Sometimes bloggers say the DUMBEST things.

WHDPs,

The argument on Luck, Wilson or RGIII is like deciding which luxury car you prefer to drive. I'm not sure there's an easy answer to the question. I hear your passion for Luck and personally I think he'll have the best career long term but for me, THIS year, I'd give it to Wilson.

Mark,

I'm just saying he's an 'opportunist'. No, I'm not sure I would leave a job that pays $3.5 mil in College to go to some team that might struggle in the NFL. I just think it's funny that he's done it two years in a row. Tells me he wou;dn't make it in the NFL....that's just my gut feeling.

Wow, i agree with Cartman, Weurffel, et all on something. Jim Irsay is just greasy. Just a slimy old fukk.

"We can get our 'burner' in the draft. I've been banging the drum loudly for a pass rusher in the first eound but I wouldn't be upset if we landed a guy like Hunter in the first....if he's the guy I think he is.

I believe that Ireland HAS to take a WR or trade down & take either Ertz or Eifert @ TE. We need a no brainer at either position. With our two 2nd round we can also trade up which I would love.

I don't have any confidence that Ireland & his scouts can find players outside the first round.

Bottom line--No matter what we do in FA, we still need to come away from this draft with a TE that can play ASAP.

billcale,

So, what have you seen in Matthews to suggest he has the ability to be the next Boldin? I'm not sure where people get some of this stuff (did I miss half the Season or something)? Boldin went to a great football college (Florida St.), was a high-rd pick (I think 2nd), was rookie of the year his 1st year in the league.

Other than both of them being black, please tell me the similarities? Did Matthews even start a game (maybe vs. the Pats due to injury)? He had a few catches, for a couple yards. And somehow that compares to a great player like Anquan Boldin?

I mean, I want Tannehill to succeed, and like the year he had, but I in NO WAY am ready to crown him the next Dan Marino.

Players need to actually PRODUCE before we start anointed them the next anything folks, lets keep that in mind.

DC, I just wouldn't dismiss the new Bills coach. Sure his record at Syracuse was .500 but that program was in such sad shape when he got there. By the time he left, it was one of the better teams in their conference. he also was the NO offensive co-ordinator for three years during Drew Brees peak years there.

This hiring is eerily similar to Joe Philbin ...

Funny seeing people hate on Irsay. Can't a guy be proud of his franchise & what they accomplished?

Colts turned it around with a rookie QB & rookies all over the field. Phins did it with an established vet QB & a soft schedule.

Colts did it with an interim coach for most the year while the real HC was getting Chemo for Leukemia.

Dolphin fans, have some perspective & stop being jealous homers! Fact is, Colts are relevant after 1 down year. Phins continue to be irrelevant for the last 10.

Ahh, got it Mark. Yeah, didn't know much about the guy. But if he was the Saints OC then he obviously has NFL experience. If he really developed the game plans there (I think Peyton calls the plays) then he's probably pretty formidable (in the creative offense department). They'll be a force if they get a QB.

WHDP, I don't doubt that Luck may/will have the best career but I'm saying right now - today - Wilson had the best year of them all. And entering the playoffs, he was the one rookie Qb who had the best chance of winning it all.

The argument on Luck, Wilson or RGIII is like deciding which luxury car you prefer to drive. I'm not sure there's an easy answer to the question. I hear your passion for Luck and personally I think he'll have the best career long term but for me, THIS year, I'd give it to Wilson.

They've all had great seasons. I actually prefer Wilson to RG3. When people were gushing all over RG3 I said that he won't be able to stay healthy with his style of play. RG3 is the same type of runner that Michael Vick was when Vick came on the scene & I believe that Shanahan was so desperate to win this year that he exposed RG3 to WAY too much danger. He's your franchise QB & you just traded your next two years' first round picks & you're running him like it's college???? You just can't do that in the NFL & expect a QB to make it through an entire season. And then continue to let him run the ball when he's CLEARLY limping???? How insane was that??? If I'm the owner of that team I'm running down the stairs from my luxury box & screaming at my HC to pull him.

IMO--Luck is the real deal & the next great QB.

WHDP, I don't doubt that Luck may/will have the best career but I'm saying right now - today - Wilson had the best year of them all. And entering the playoffs, he was the one rookie Qb who had the best chance of winning it all.

Mark,

I think Seattle can win it all as well. They're MUCH more physical than the Falcons & I saw them beat up the Niners a few weeks ago with Justin Smith out.

Blog full ,

is it not possible to support Coach pagano and his feel good story, admire Andrew Luck, but at the same time hate an owner like Irsay who helped orchestrate that throw away season in 2011??

"Dolphins TE/FB Charles Clay underwent surgery to repair the torn ligament in his right knee sustained in mid-December.

Clay went under the knife after the Week 15 game. It's still unclear which ligament was damaged. As long as it's not an ACL injury, Clay should be ready for the beginning of training camp in late July."

Does anyone know which ligament Clay tore???

DC@10:57; I like Matthews and he reminds me of Boldin. I thought he looked good in the games he played. Made some good catches. Coaches continued to play him, so I'd infer from that, that he's liked by the coaches.

He was targeted 17 times and had 11 catches for 150 or so yards. Not bad. I thought he played better than Binns and on a receiver-starved team, I think he's a keeper. I didn't expect him to be ROY. Why the jump?

Mark,

Only thing to be cautious of on the Marron hiring in Buffalo....'Bill Parcells trusts him'. That should be the death knell for any HC.....pretty sure we heard the same stuff about Sparano.

Hopefully it's not the kiss of death for this guy's sake.

Bill,

Give me a break....I like Matthews' upside too but Anquan Boldin??? Boldin was a monster from the day he came into the NFL (101 catches for 1377 yards as a rookie & 8 TD's) & regardless of all of his injuries, still manages to make HUGE catches.

Assuming FA & the draft go correctly Matthews has a chance to be the Number 4 WR. If he's the 3rd WR then Ireland will probably get fired after the 2013 season. Sorry Ireland fans but if he doesn't somehow, someway come away from FA & the draft w/o two WR's ahead of Bess on the depth chart then he's worthless as a GM.

wallace and Jennings! sign both, do not draft reveived. draft TE, MLB, CB'S, Safty, DE

WHDPs,

We don't always agree about Ireland but I'd agree with your above comments. With $46 mil to spend in FA and five of the fist 90 picks in the draft there's NO excuse for not coming away with two good WRs and a TE. I'm with you on the above comment.

Well, the thing that makes me think well of Marrone is that sure he may be a descendant of the Bill Parcells tree but he is the direct descendant of Sean payton who has his finger directly on the pulse of recent success in the NFL.

Bear in mind that even Payton is a Parcells descendent as is Bill Belicheck. Not every son repeats the sin of the father. ... so to speak.

"Only thing to be cautious of on the Marron hiring in Buffalo....'Bill Parcells trusts him'. That should be the death knell for any HC.....pretty sure we heard the same stuff about Sparano.

The Bills organization is even more screwed up then we are. Last time I checked they still have Fitzgerald as their QB. I do wish we had Spiller though...

Craig, WHDP,

Definitely agree. the objective between FA and the draft is to add 2 WR and a TE that can work the deep middle. Our offense had ZERO ability to work the deep middle of the field last year - NONE. There should be a lot of easy yards to make there in the NFL but we had no prescence there at all.

"as well as the turnover on his roster, the QB changing of the guard etc when he was referring to the past season."

This happened fopr the Dolphins before they turned around a 1-15 season too so not sure what your point is.

The real answer would have been,,,, the reason Irsay had said "I've never seen anything like this before" is because he was talking about personal experience. He had never been with a team who accomplished something like that.

So imo you're both wrong.

I guess Irsay was on a desert island somewhere back in 2008, when the Dolphins went from 1-15 to 11-5. Sometimes owners and players can say the DUMBEST things.

Voice of reason? You can't even string a thought together that makes sense. You see that someone is wrong, and then you call them out by giving the wrong interpretation of what is going on. That makes you just as dumb. Thanks for playing.
