With free agency set to start in just a few days, Minnesota Vikings rumors are beginning to heat up about the team possibly showing interset in wide receiver Mike Wallace of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Numerous teams are expected to make a run to sign the wideout, but with the team’s situation involving Percy Harvin–it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Vikings make a strong push to land Wallace.
It’s no secret Harvin has been unhappy with his situation in Minnesota and with the way things are going at the moment–it wouldn’t be a surprise if the team ended up trading the wideout before the 2013 season. If this does end up happening, the Vikings will certainly be in need of more help at the wide receiver position–which is why signing Wallace may be the answer.
The argument can be made that Wallace is one of the most difficult wide receivers to contain in the NFL as he’s been a nightmare for opponents to defend throughout his career and he wouldn’t be fighting so hard for a hefty long-term deal if he didn’t think he was worthy enough to have one. Imagine how dangerous the Vikings entering the 2013 season with Adrian Peterson at running back and a wide receiver in Wallace who has caught 196 passes for 3,286 yards to go along with 26 touchdowns ove the last three seasons lining up on offense and it’s safe to say Minnesota would compete with the other three teams for the NFC North title.
