    Per Drew Rosenhaus on #SportsXtra Long, Smith, Bush, Fasano & Clemons (Rosenhaus Client) will test the open market.

    Drew went on to leave Hartline for last and said " who knows " if Hartline will get to test the open market, with a big evil smile.

    Check out Rosenhaus' evil smile when talking about Brian Hartline. I can almost see the horns, willing to bet a deal is close http://t.co/SRNwaRkqho

    Would definitely be a good thing to get Hartline locked up.

    Fingers crossed on Hartline. That would be two pieces addressed (Hartline and Starks), if it works out.

    I would be huge for Ryan if we can re-sign his top target. No doubt a Wallace or Bowe or Jennings would be our #1 WR, but with Hartline with a yr of tanney passes already under his belt he
    will give him a comfort zone early on.

    I would like an upgrade over Hartline, but re-signing Hartline shows our hand on who we are targeting in FA to play on the opposite side, Mike Wallace. Because it sure as heck isn't going to make sense having Jennings as the compliment on the other side as they are basically the same type of player, the route runner/possession guy. Oh well, Wallace and Hartline should be ok. :)

    Wallace, Hartline with Austin or Swope in the slot could be a devastating trio. All i want is evidence of some sort of cohesive plan, not like the **** we got shoveled in the offseason last year. Hartline is a start. Wish we could trade away Bess to open one of the WR slots. The guy has a reasonable skill set, I cant believe that some team wouldnt find him worth a late 4th or 5th. It'd be huge to have a speed guy in the slot.


    But I think RT and Fartline have a good thing going honestly. They had great rapport right out of the gates this year, even with hartline missing the entire camp. Hartline is outstanding at the sideline deep outs and digs, and thats RT's favorite pass to throw (and is great at throwing). A nice security blanket for his sophmore season and beyond. The deep out and deep curls are what made Marino to Clayton and Marino to Duper so incredibly deadly, because their speed got them cushions to the point that the 18 yd out was almost a gimme play for Dan. Somehow, without comparable speed, Hartline engineers similar separation at the cut; great route runner.

    I like Hartline at just around 5mil/yr. And, reallly, whats the point in arguing over a million or two dollars on a contract of someone who will help the team, and not the garbage money Ireland has tossed around in FA in the past?

    Wallace, Hartline, Bess, Swope, Matthews would be a BAMF Group (C'mon Ireland lets do this)

    If we trade Bess, he will go to New England just like Welker did... We love to trade our best players to division rivals...

    At 4 PM our options will be pretty clear. Wallace is going to be available. I hope Bowe and Jennings both hit the open market but think at least one, if not both of them will be franchised.

    I really hope the 49ers let Goldson test FA. The man is a monster and would give us one of the best safety tandems in the NFL. Unfortunately it would still leave us with 0 CBs.

    If this is true and hearing that Philbin has a heavy hand in the free agency an the draft process, it shows that Joe has a lot of confidence in what Hartline can add to his offense going forward.

    Only like it if paired with an actual playmaker that can find the endzone in Mike Wallace.

    If he's going to be our #1 WR again then next season isn't even worth watching.

    Exactly - he is good mojo for Tanney -> he might even be explosive as a no.2 but he shouldn't receive the targets he does considering his aversion to the EZ

    If we only resign Hartline, Clemons, and Fasano, I consider it a successful round of bringing our own guys back.

    Smith - GTFO
    Long - I'd bring him back but nowhere close to his demands

    you go out and you get two wr in the draft, you have wasted

    A-your money
    B-your draft pick,

    brining him back makes things look like the cluster F**** and we can save a ton of money by going using the rookie cap to bring in someone that can have similar number 2 numbers

    Hartline- 800 yards 2 Touchdowns(and this number is me being VERY generous) looks a whole lot worse than Swope/Allen/Hunter- 800 and 2 touchdowns you know why? because anyone of those three can give you those types of numbers for FOUR MILLION LESS than Hartline

    you resign him, you make this offseason look terrible already

    I agree with only signing 1 FA wideout. It doesn't make sense to sign 2 when we can sign a big name a draft a guy to take Hartlines place.

    Resigning Hartline for anything over 3 million per means that you have GIVEN UP ON ABOVE AVERAGE PLAY at that position.

    And when the GM gives up on anything other than mediocre play at skill positions, we get what we get the last few years.

    THIS NFL IS ABOUT SKILL AND SPEED AT THE WR and TE POSITIONS. If you don't get that basic concept, you don't need to be GM. Period. This ain't Bill Parcells' NFL, folks.

    And wow! How is it that Fin fans can easily admit mediocre play when it comes on a rival team, but cling to mediocre play like it's the last hope on earth when that mediocre player is on the Fin's roster?

    lol. SMH.

    YOU DON"T PAY 5 MILLION for depth at WR.

    You take that 5 million and get a playmaker WR -- at least someone that puts pressure on a D. Or you draft someone with more skill, for FAR less.

    Using depth as an excuse to resign Hartline is just committing "greatness suicide."

    Let Hartline walk please. Get Wallace, leave Bess (he's still a real good slot receiver) and draft a receiver with one of our top 2 picks, then spend another later pick on one.

    Mike Wallace/ Deandre Hopkins/ Bess/ Marquess Wilson/ Rishard Matthews sounds pretty sick to me.

    Its not giving up, some people believe he can continue to improve. I believe he can be a 6-8 TD a year type of player and you believe we've seen the best from him, we can disagree and thats fine because none of us have crystal balls.

    Better to draft 2 WRs then to pay too much.

    once again, its not about being # 1, 2, 3, or 4.

    its about being one of four that gets open (you want the other 3 to as well)

    so u cant cover everybody 24-7. this is why reggie cobb talked about now, he is one in a group.

    The handwriting is obviously on the wall. So no sense in arguing if we should tell him to take a hike. Rosenhaus all but revealed that Hartline is a done deal to return. So I'm just focusing on signing Wallace to stretch the field on the other side. Bess, Matthews, and a mid round draft pick should round out our WR corps and we'll see what they do at TE. I've worked it out inside already that our #2, for better or for worse, will be Brian friggin Hartline. :/
