Dolphins cut their best wide receiver; Move saves 3.15 million

hartlineToday the Miami Dolphins released Brian Hartline, who in my opinion is their best wide receiver. He is the most consistent and has been a favorite target of Tannehill since he entered the league.

The veteran wideout was due $5.9 million in 2015. The move saves Miami $3.15 million against the salary cap. The 28-year-old signed a five-year, $30.775 million contract in 2013.

Hartline’s role diminished in 2014 with the emergence of Jarvis Landry. The vet caught just 39 passes for 474 yards and two touchdowns. His production as a No. 3 or 4 receiver did not match his high salary, so maybe they couldn’t rework a deal.

UPDATE: The Dolphins also just released Brandon Gibson.
