On the topic of Dolphins WRs Brian Hartline and Davone Bess:
“They’ve both obviously defied expectations,” said Daniel Jeremiah, a former league scout who now works as an analyst for NFL Network. “It’s a nice little duo they have: Hartline over the top and Bess across the middle.”
Jeremiah said of Hartline: “I didn’t see it coming. He’s impressed the heck out of me. There’s been nothing phony about his production. It’s been legitimate.”
His production couldn’t come at a better time. Hartline is in the final year of his rookie contract, and a league source said the team already has begun preliminary discussions about an extension.
Bess has been a bit of a forgotten man — which is staggering, considering he’s also playing at his highest level as a pro. Bess has caught 20 passes for 297 yards, and is on pace to set career highs in both categories.
