A source told FOXSports.com that Brian Hartline and the Dolphins are nearing agreement on a contract that would keep the wide receiver from hitting the free-agent market. The multiyear deal would average between $6 million and $6.5 million a season, the source said.


This could be an imporatnt deal and give some kind of terms to what Danny Amendola will be looking for...

$6-6.5 million is still too much for DA...
Way too much, Hartline is atleast an outside guy who can get deep as well as play the middle of the field.

I wouldnt pay a pure slot receiver the way Danny plays it anymore than $3.5 m per year

Wes Welker and the Patriots are closing in on a multi-year contract that would allow Welker to finish his career in New England. An NFL source says that the two sides are hoping to have something finalized before the onset of free agency on March 12.


Looks like Welker is gonna be off the market as well. Amendola's price-tag could be going up with a good amount of these potential FA WR's (Bowe, Welker, Hartline) getting deals...

The contract the Chief's gave Bowe was certainly an eye opener.

I admit the kid is good; however, I am not sure he was THAT good considering the contract he just signed.

That being said the bar for FA WRs for 2013 has just been set.

Not only will Miami reach the cap floor if they sign Wallace, they will probably be over the cap Laughing Laughing

A source tells the Chicago Sun-Times that free agent Jared Cook will draw interest from the Bears. The Bears have swung and missed with lumbering, drop-prone Kellen Davis. Cook would step right in as a true "move" tight end, representing a massive upgrade in terms of both separation ability and hands.

Free agent SS William Moore hopes to re-sign with the Falcons. Moore, who is keen on letting the market establish his value, wasn't franchise tagged ahead of Monday's deadline. He says his agent is in ongoing talks with the Falcons. "I hope to get it closed soon. I love the Atlanta Falcons. They gave me an opportunity to be blessed and come into the NFL and be a part of this great organization."


Doesn't sound like he's gonna be going anywhere...

Cook is asking to be paid in the top 5 of TE's. On the radio it said he is asking for around 8 million a year.
Well the Radio needs to learn what the "Top 5 TEs" are paid. Because $8mil per year would put him as THE highest paid Tight End in the league. I doubt he is asking for Jason Witten, Vernon Davis, Rob Gronkowski money. If he wants $8mil then it would be a Finley like contract, real short (2 years max).

If he wants anything long term, then he will likely be paid Top 10 TE money, but not Top 5. A 4 year deal around $6mil per is a reasonable & likely deal for a guy like Cook

RT @3HL1045: @jwyattsports: Jared Cook will get $8-9 million per year on the open market.


If he wanted just 6 mil a year he would have already signed a 5 year deal here.

You're kidding me right? As much potential as he has, there is no way I would sign him for more than 4 million per year. And maybe not even that much. This is a guy who has done very little so far in the NFL, and didn't exactly have a high pedigree to begin with.

If you're telling me that I could re-sign Amendola instead, and simultaneously save money, then no way.

We also have to keep in mind with these high paid free agents, with the rookie salary scale implemented, they are requiring higher contracts for vets.

They deals these guys are getting it seems like the Rams may only sign 1 top free agent if they are active early this year.

I wonder if they target OL or go after a guy like Cook. Or go defense and get a Safety like Moore or Delmas.

Cook is so good that it would almost be worth it. Almost.
