CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have released veteran wide receiver Brian Hartline, Pro Football Talk reported and ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed through a tweet Monday afternoon.
A native of Canton, Ohio and graduate of GlenOak High School, Hartline was released by his hometown team after just one year with the organization.
After signing a free-agent contract with the Browns following a six-year run with the Miami Dolphins, Hartline played in 12 games and made four starts in 2015. Hartline turned 46 catches into 523 yards and two touchdowns, all of which were at or above his 2014 production level with the Dolphins, a year where he made just 39 receptions for 474 yards with two scores.
When Hartline came to the Browns, he was a six-year professional that turned 298 receptions into 4,243 yards, a 14.2 yards-per-catch average and 12 touchdowns in 92 career games for the Dolphins, who selected him with a fourth-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.
