Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio reports that the wide receiver agreed to a five-year, $30.775 million contract late Thursday night.
A fourth-round draft pick from Ohio State in 2009, Hartline is coming off his best NFL season. He had 74 catches for 1,083 yards and one touchdown in 2012. Overall, the receiver has posted career totals of 183 receptions for 2,753 yards and six touchdowns. He holds Miami’s single-game record for receiving yards with 253 against Arizona on September 30, 2012.
NFL.com’s Jeff Darlington got Hartline’s reaction:
Dolphins WR @brianhartline tells me he just signed his deal to stay in Miami: “It feels great to know the hard work has paid off.”
