Brian Hartline WR MIA 4 Days

Hartline was released by the Dolphins on Friday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Following consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, Hartline produced an ugly 39-474-2 receiving line on 63 targets in 2014. He's never been an explosive player, and his per-target production is typically underwhelming. With Mike Wallace also carrying a bloated contract, the Miami receiving corps may undergo an offseason overhaul. Jarvis Landry is seemingly assured of a big role in 2015, but it remains to be seen how the rest will shake out. As for Hartline, the 28-year-old wideout should be able to find a team that allows him to compete for a starting job in training camp. However, he's unlikely to re-emerge as a 1,000-yard receiver.

Hartline has five receptions for 94 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

Hartline finishes a disappointing 2014 campaign with just 39 receptions for 474 yards and two touchdowns. The emergence of Jarvis Landry made Hartline an afterthought in the passing game and it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone should Hartline find himself playing for another team next season.

Hartline (knee) caught 2-of-4 targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Ravens.

Hartline caught an eight-yard touchdown late in the opening quarter, but was quiet otherwise. He's taken a backseat to Jarvis Landry in recent weeks, and Sunday was no exception, as the sure-handed rookie wideout caught 6-of-6 targets for 55 yards. If you need Hartline next week, he'll face the Patriots on the road.

Hartline's knee injury is not believed to be serious, Andrew Abramson of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Hartline finished Monday's game with just one reception for nine yards, as the Miami offense largely relied on Mike Wallace and Jarvis Landry. Even if he doesn't miss any time beyond Monday, Hartline is no better than the third of fourth option in Miami's inconsistent passing game.

Hartline left Monday's game against the Jets with a knee injury, and he will not return to the contest, Andrew Abramson of The Palm Beach Post reports.

At the time of his exit, Hartline had one reception for nine yards on his only target. His absence should lead to added snaps for Brandon Gibson and Rishard Matthews, both of whom were big parts of the Miami offense at different points during the 2013 season.

Hartline had two receptions for 39 yards in Miami's 39-36 loss to Denver on Sunday.

Hartline is Miami's number two receiver in name only as quarterback Ryan Tannehill prefers Mike Wallace and rookie Jarvis Landry. Not only did Hartline only have two receptions Sunday but he also only had two targets as he's just not a big part of the team's game plan.
