Brian Hartline Re-Signs With Miami Dolphins

Mike Ehrmann

The Miami Dolphins and wide receiver Brian Hartline have officially come to terms on a new contract. Hartline had been scheduled to be a free agent on Tuesday if the two sides had not reached a new deal.

According to multiple sources, the Miami Dolphins and wide receiver Brian Hartline have reached an agreement, keeping the team's leading receiver from 2012 in Miami for five more years. According to the Miami Herald's Adam H. Beasley, the deal is a five year contract for $30.8 million, with $12.5 million guaranteed.

That makes the deal with $6.16 million per year over the life of the contract.

The Dolphins have around $37 million in salary cap space prior to Hartline's deal. The specifics of the deal are not yet known to be able to calculate how much of that room the deal with Hartline will use.

Miami is expected to pursue Mike Wallace or Greg Jennings in the upcoming free agency period. Teams can begin negotiating with player representatives as early as Saturday, with the signing period opening on March 12.

Hartline, who is the first of the Dolphins potential free agents to re-sign, surpassed the 1,000 yard mark for the first time in his career last year.
