Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline may turn his fast start into a long-term deal, according to an NFL.com report.
The NFL leader in receiving yards can become a free agent after the season. The Miami Dolphins and Hartline have begun preliminary contract talks.
Hartline hauled in 12 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He has 455 total yards on 25 catches in four games. The four-year veteran's best season came in 2010, when he had 615 yards receiving.
