Former Buckeye, and huge Terrelle Pryor fan, Brian Hartline reportedly came to terms on a five-year, $31 million dollar deal with the Miami Dolphins.

The deal includes $12.5 million in guaranteed coin. Hartline is understandably giddy:

"It feels great," Hartline said. "It feels great to know hard work and perseverance is worth something. But now it's about winning games. I think we're on the right path. I think we're close.

"I'm excited to see what happens in free agency. We want to win. We're set up so we have cap room to make some moves, and that's one way we can win football games. It's important. And the draft will be important, too. It's exciting."

The deal comes on the heels of Hartline's solid 2012 campaign in which he eclipsed the 1,000 yards receiving barrier for the first time.
