Wide receiver is on the verge of signing with Miami according to multiple reports.
The Miami Dolphins are widely expected to sign the top offensive free agent in this year’s class, Mike Wallace.
SI.com’s Peter King says the Dolphins “didn’t have much, if any, competition for a big-money deal [$11 million or more a year] for wide receiver Mike Wallace.”
The deal will be a huge upgrade for a stagnant receiving corps, which has lacked the big play impact that Wallace will bring to the passing attack.
Having re-signed Brian Hartline to a big contract – and now potentially the former Pittsburgh Steeler – Ryan Tannehill will now finally have options to throw to in his second year as the Dolphins Quarterback.
The large amount of cap space at the Dolphins disposal meant that they were always going to be major players in the free agent market and this signing will send a big statement to their playoff intentions.
If they can sign a defensive back to help with the pass game, likely to be Dashon Goldson, and add a big name pass rusher during the Draft, then they could be a very intriguing team next season, and could contend for a wild card spot in the AFC playoffs.
