Miami Dolphins are offering unrivaled contract to Mike Wallace
The Miami Dolphins are making a unmatched push to sign free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace.
According to SI.com, the Dolphins are offering Wallace a deal worth $11 million or more a year and they do not “have much, if any, competition for a big-money deal.”
Wallace was the 84th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by Pittsburgh and has played for the Steelers since. In his four years in the NFL, he has caught 235 passes for 4,042 yards and 32 touchdowns.
If the 26-year-old Wallace signs with the Dolphins he will join and probably lead their receiving corp, which currently consists of Davone Bess and the recently resigned Brian Hartline.
In his fifth season, Bess made 61 receptions for 778 yards and one touchdown. Hartline earned a five-year $30.775 million contract after a career year in 2012, bringing in 74 receptions for 1,083 yards and one touchdown.
Other teams that have shown interest in placing a bid for Wallace are the Minnesota Vikings and the New England Patriots but they will have to get closer to $11 million if they want him, NFL.com is reporting.
