Brian Hartline, Wide Receiver, Miami Dolphins

A cap casualty in Miami, receiver Brian Hartline has always been an underrated player. He has the size at 6’2” and 200 pounds to be a real player for Houston and has even posted two 1,000-yard receiving seasons in 2012 and 2013.

The Dolphins seemed to be ready to go young at the position this year as they cut Hartline, 28 years old and fellow wide out Brandon Gibson, 27.

The odd thing is neither player is really considered old for the position. I believe Hartline, the Ohio State alum has a lot left to offer in this league, and can do so at a below market deal for a guy of his talent.

Again, playmakers will be desperately needed for Houston, especially knowing Andre Johnson does not want to be a part of the team in 2105.
