Pittsburgh Steelers free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace is going to be the top target in free agency. Out of all of the upcoming available players, Wallace has generated the most buzz heading into the new year on March 12.
There is little doubt that Wallace will be one of the first players on the market to sign a big deal.
Just on Wednesday, we have heard reports that link the 26-year-old speedster to four different teams. The Miami Dolphins have been considered the ‘team to beat‘ for Wallace, but they are expected to get into a bidding war with the Minnesota Vikings.
Now there are two more teams that have surfaced.
The Cleveland Browns would like to make a run for Wallace, but they are not as likely as the Dolphins or Vikings.
Then, there is the Tennessee Titans.
During an appearance on Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network earlier this week, Sports Illustrated’s Peter King mentioned the Titans as a potential ‘dark horse candidate’ in the Wallace sweepestakes. Since the Titans did not use the franchise tag on tight end Jared Cook, they currently have $19 million in cap space, so they could certainly make a move.
If Wallace was to join Tennessee, he would give them another threat with Kendall Wright and Nate Washington. With that trio of wideouts, the team would only need only play in the huddle — “go long.”
