The Miami Dolphins may be prepared to part ways with wide receiver Mike Wallace, who recently had a sit down with general manager Dennis Hickey.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace has been rumored to be leaving the team after just two seasons.

This has reportedly stemmed from an incident where Wallace sat on the bench during the Week 17 game against the New York Jets, which the Dolphins had lost.
Wallace still has three years remaining on his five-year, $60 million contract with the Dolphins, but the team is reportedly becoming fed up with his attitude and butting heads with the coaching staff.
General manager Dennis Hickey had a meal with the wide receiver, which was likely a conversation about his future in Miami.
Wallace is due $9.85 million for the 2015 season, but the Dolphins do not have any reliable wide receivers aside from Wallace.
Him leaving would undoubtedly impede the development of quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who showed improvement in his third NFL season with 27 touchdown passes against 12 interceptions.
The Dolphins have been known to let go of star players in the past due to attitude issues though, such as Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
