The wide receiver is meeting with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation. Pro Football Talk first reported the visit.
The connection to Cleveland is logical not only in location but also opportunity. The Browns have a desperate need for depth and playmakers at the receiver position. While at this stage Hartline isn't the latter -- his difficulty in getting separation last year jumped off the screen -- he could provide veteran depth to a position of need at a fair price. The receiver earned back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2012-2013.
