Brian Hartline re-signs with the Dolphins

Receiver Brian Hartline and backup quarterback Matt Moore have re-signed with the Miami Dolphins, the organization announced on Friday. This announcement comes just four days before free agency is set to begin.

"I am excited that we have been able to reach an agreement with both Brian and Matt to keep them as members of the Miami Dolphins," Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said in a statement. "Brian is an ascending player that has steadily improved over his first four years with the organization. He has represented himself positively both on the field and throughout the South Florida community. Matt has been a valuable contributor to the Dolphins ever since he arrived two seasons ago. We are happy we were able to resign him, and we think he combines with Ryan Tannehill and Pat Devlin to give us an outstanding group of quarterbacks."

Hartline had an astounding 2012 season statistically, hauling in a career best 74 receptions for 1,083 yards. However, he only reached the end zone once all year.

Moore will return to backup starter Ryan Tannehill in 2013. In limited duty a season ago, Moore completed 11 of 19 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown
