NFL Rumors: Miami Dolphins trying to trade Mike Wallace


A few weeks back, rumors suggested the Miami Dolphins were attempting to trade wide receiver Mike Wallace.

The Dolphins denied such, but it appears the team has renewed interest in moving the wideout according to CBS’ Jason La Canfora.

Fins have renewed attempts to trade WR Mike Wallace during the league meetings. Teams doing homework on him. Contract makes it a tough trade

While the the Dolphins ‘might be trying’, being successful in doing so is a completely different story.

Wallace hasn’t exactly performed up to expectations and signed a $60 million dollar contract just over a year ago. Add in that his base salary for the upcoming season is an absurd $15 million and Miami would probably struggle to give him away.

Given all of that, there’s almost no way the Dolphins will be able to move Wallace – no matter if they actually want to or not.

If teams were reluctant to make a move for DeSean Jackson, making a move on Wallace is all but out of the question.

    Nobody would take his crazy contract.. (With a 17 mil. cap hit this year)

    Tbh the Dolphins should not trade Mike Wallace this year. My rationale would be we have Mike Wallace on the books for way too much guaranteed money for us to trade him or released. And he is the only healthy proven receiver on the roster. Remember now Brandon Hartline had a knee injury toward the end of the season. As well Brandon Gibson tore his knee toward the middle of the season. He played well for us but still not a proven 1or 2 receiver. After that on the roster we just have Rishard Matthews who’s just a border line 2 receiver in my opinion if given at opportunity. Right now a 3, 4 receiver. So keep Wallace for the season. Pay him all the rest of his guarantee you money. At the end of the 14-15 season ask him to take a pay cut and restructure the last 3 years. He says yes he stays he says no he gets released. Executive decision. Can’t keep him on the books at that price. However this year in my opinion we need to get Mike Evans receiver out of Texas A & M. A 6’5 230 pound receiver. Remember if Brandon Gibson doesn’t come back healthy or does it perform well enough. We can cut him and not have on our books. We paid him all his guaranteed money in his first year with the dolphins. Also we don’t have to be loyal to him because he wasn’t drafted by us. Not a player signed by GM Dennis hickey. So imagine Wallace (5’10), Hartline (6’2) Mike Evans rookie if drafted (6’5), Brandon Gibson (6’0) Matthews (6’2). Not a GREAT receiver group but damn sure a B+ group better then the Patriots,vJets and Bills.

    If anyone should be on the trade block it should be Dion Jordan I would hate to see him waste his career he’s an amazing defensive end and would be fairly easy to get a good offer for him
