Colts coach Chuck Pagano said the team is considering signing a veteran free agent receiver.
The Colts waived Josh Boyce on Tuesday. Boyce had been getting reps as the No. 4 wideout behind T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett. Someone like Brian Hartline would provide a steady veteran presence as a No. 4. Roddy White is also available. Tue, Aug 16, 2016 01:51:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent WR Brian Hartline is working out for the Chargers Tuesday.

With Stevie Johnson set to miss at least the beginning of the season with a torn meniscus, San Diego brought in both Hartline and James Jones on Tuesday. The Chargers' desire to get someone in this quickly could indicate Johnson's injury will keep him on the shelf for most if not all of the year. Hartline recorded 46 catches for 523 yards and two scores with the Browns last season.

Browns released WR Brian Hartline.

It's a surprise in that the Browns have zero receiver depth and Hartline was easily their best holdover, but entirely unsurprising in the context of their commitment to tanking the 2016 season. The Browns are playing for the future, and 29-year-old Hartline wasn't going to be a part of it. New coach Hue Jackson now has even more snaps to divvy up amongst his four rookie wideouts. Hartline should draw plenty of interest as a No. 3/4 receiver that can help move the chains.

Brian Hartline (broken collarbone) is participating in the Browns' offseason program.

Hartline is being eased in, but he's over the injury that ended his 2015. Absurdly, Hartline is currently a clear No. 1 on the Browns' receiver depth chart. That could change after the draft, or, of course, if Josh Gordon is reinstated.

Brian Hartline suffered a broken collarbone in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

He'll undergo surgery on Tuesday, and miss the rest of the season. Hartline had been on a hot streak before going down, posting 70-plus yards in four straight games. His loss is a downgrade to Johnny Manziel's rest-of-season value. With Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel still sidelined, the Browns are down to Terrelle Pryor and Dwayne Bowe behind Travis Benjamin. Hartline will finish 2015 with a 46/523/2 line on 73 targets.

Brian Hartline left Week 14 against the 49ers with a shoulder injury.

He's done for the game. The Browns immediately ruled him out, suggesting it's a serious injury. Hartline caught 8-of-10 targets for 107 yards before going down. Terrelle Pryor will see increased snaps.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 03:16:00 PM

Brian Hartline (hip) is active for Week 14.

Hartline should play his normal snaps despite missing practice time this week. He's managed 70-plus yards in three straight games, but isn't more than a WR4. Travis Benjamin (shoulder) is also active.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 11:58:00 AM

Brian Hartline (hip) is questionable for Week 14 against the 49ers.

Hartline practiced in full on Wednesday but was downgraded to limited on Thursday. He should be able to play, but needs to be monitored into Sunday.
Fri, Dec 11, 2015 01:05:00 PM

Brian Hartline (hip) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Hartline's status isn't believed to be in doubt. Hartline was going to have some WR3 appeal if Travis Benjamin (shoulder) sat, but Benjamin is now expected to suit up against the 49ers. Hartline is still a solid WR4.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 04:31:00 PM

Brian Hartline declined to comment following the Browns' 37-3 loss to the Bengals because he wants "to keep a job."

The wheels seem to be falling off in Cleveland after Mike Pettine stubbornly went with an overmatched Austin Davis over an improving Johnny Manziel because the latter lied to them about a party video. The offense deserved some form of punishment, but not at the cost of the entire team. It sounds like Pettine may have lost the locker room with the decision, and it looks likely he will be looking for work this January.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 07:32:00 PM

Brian Hartline secured 8-of-11 targets for 83 yards in the Browns' Week 13 loss to Cincinnati.

With Taylor Gabriel and Andrew Hawkins inactive, and Travis Benjamin (shoulder) leaving the game early, Hartline paced the Browns in targets and served as Austin Davis' primary safety net over the middle. Hartline quietly has well over 40 targets over his last four games. He's become a legitimate WR3 option in PPR leagues. The Browns will face the 49ers next.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 04:07:00 PM

Brian Hartline caught 8-of-12 targets for 74 yards in the Browns' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.

The targets and catches were both season-highs. Hartline has posted back-to-back 77- and 74-yard receiving games and appears to have cemented his spot as the No. 2 receiver with Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel both battling concussions. Still, Hartline has zero upside and a low floor. He's a WR5/6.
Tue, Dec 1, 2015 12:54:00 AM

Brian Hartline snared six of nine targets for 77 yards in the Browns' Week 10 loss to the Steelers.

He missed last week’s game with a concussion. Hartline is finally carving a role for himself in the Browns’ passing game. He’s been targeted 19 times over his last two games. Despite his recent resurgence, Hartline will be well off the fantasy radar when the Browns host Baltimore in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 05:58:00 PM

Brian Hartline (probable, concussion) has been cleared to return Sunday.

Hartline practiced in full after sitting out last week. Andrew Hawkins (concussion) is also probable.
Fri, Nov 13, 2015 07:31:00 PM

Browns WRs Brian Hartline (concussion) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion) were full participants in Wednesday's practice.

The practice puts both on track to play against the Steelers, but neither player is worth using in fantasy. Taylor Gabriel will slot back in as the No. 4 receiver, and Dwayne Bowe should once again find himself on the inactive list.
