Sources suggest Wallace will be making the switch to Miami.
According to South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Omar Kelly, the Miami Dolphins have pinpointed Mike Wallace as their top choice to fill their wide receiver void.
Given their free cap space and future draft picks, the Dolphins will be looking at this off-season as a key period as they build for the future.
Having turned down a $50 million contract last year, Wallace isn’t expected to be back in Pittsburgh with the Steelers for the new season, and the Dolphins have now emerged as the potential front-runners.
Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings has often been linked with a switch to Miami, having previously worked for coach Joe Philbin during their time together at the Green Bay Packers.
However, injuries and age may well deter Philbin from securing that reunion, and a more expensive move for Wallace looks more likely.
Wallace arguably is also a better fit for the Dolphins set-up, as he is seen as being able to help open up and stretch the field for the rest of the offense, giving quarterback Ryan Tannehill a better opportunity to successfully develop his game.
With Dolphins owner Stephen Ross ready to spend big, Wallace may just be the start of things to come at Miami Gardens.
