In a report that surprises absolutely no one, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that the Miami Dolphins are the team to beat for Pittsburgh Steelers free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace. With Miami in desperate need of speed on offense, the Dolphins have been connected to Wallace for a while.
“A lot of people around the league believe that the Miami Dolphins are poised to make a major run at a player who many regard as the No. 1 free agent available,” Schefter said on SportsCenter.
He went on to add that the Dolphins are desperate to add speed around quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Tannehill has all of the tools to succeed as an NFL passer, but he will need more talent on the outside. Quite frankly, Brian Hartline and Devone Bess just aren’t cutting it. Tannehill would improve leaps and bounds if he had someone like Wallace that would allow him to show off his arm.
Wallace will be one of the first free agents off the board and he is in for a big pay day.
I’m sure the speedy receiver wouldn’t be opposed to trading in the cold weather of Pittsburgh for the warm weather of South Beach and a fat contract.
