With the way things turned out last season, it’s no surprise to see the Miami Dolphins have made wide receiver their top priority this offseason, especially considering that they spent a first-round pick on quarterback Ryan Tannehill in the 2012 NFL Draft. The Dolphins have already been linked to numerous players when it comes to possible wide receivers to go after, but one of the latest NFL rumors involves which player they would like to go after in mind–Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace.
Unfortunately, Wallace and the Steelers just couldn’t seem to come to an agreement last year as the wideout fought so hard to receive a long-term contract after putting up impressive numbers the previous two seasons–only to be denied by the organization. Over the last three seasons, Wallace has caught 196 passes for 3,286 and 26 touchdowns–so it’s no secret what he’s capable of as a wide receiver.
In fact, Wallace has established a reputation for being one of the league’s fastest wide receivers over the last couple of years and the Dolphins would be lucky to land him if he were interested in coming to Miami. The Dolphins may have a few decent receivers at the moment, such as Brian Hartline or Davone Bess, but it’s no secret they’re going to need a big-name wide receiver if they’re going to have any chance of competing in the AFC East–which is why landing Wallace would be huge for the organization.
