After a handful of successful seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike Wallace made his way to the Miami Dolphins where he was expected to be the Pro Bowl wide receiver they desperately needed.
Sadly, Wallace’s first season with Miami was forgettable and the offseason has been filled with trade rumors. But if the Philadelphia Eagles struggled to trade DeSean Jackson and his contract, the Dolphins will certainly encounter the same issues making such a move unlikely.
That said, some Dolphins players don’t feel as if members of the coaching staff are big fans of Wallace.
Several Dolphins have wondered among themselves why Miami has been looking so closely at first- and second-round receivers, and their suspicion is that the Dolphins want to replace Mike Wallace in a year or so. Several players believe some of these coaches aren’t big fans of Wallace, and “Joe Philbin is running that place,” one prominent agent said.
Miami has reportedly been scouting wide receivers hard in anticipation of the 2014 NFL Draft and could already be looking to replace the veteran wideout.
