Reports are that they are going hard after Cook as well. Wallace, Hartline, Bess, Cook, and Miller is a MUCH improved offense from last season. Cook is a key pickup if it indeed happens, because his athleticism is going to make defenses think twice about doubling up on Wallace.
MIke Wallace and the Dolphins have agreed to a five-year contract that will pay him between $60 and $65 million if he meets all its incentives.
The contract includes a substantial amount of guaranteed money. Although that figure is not yet known, it will be approximately $30 million.
Wallace will be the third-highest paid wide receiver in the NFL behind Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald, according to a person familiar with the deal.
The contract is not yet signed. Indeed, the Dolphins are privately denying that it is done. But Wallace is in South Florida and taking a physical and could sign the deal if he passes, as expected. He will sign the deal this evening.
The Dolphins have been making press conference plans but likely that will happen Wednesday.
Wow. That's alotta dough. Happy for the Phins tho, cuz they got a big name, and a target for Tanny, anyways. It's always fun to get a big name.
...plus it makes Mario Williams deal look good from a Bills fan perspective. It's amazing a Bills fan can be happy for a Phins move, but I guess the Pats are THAT good. Hopefully losing Welker hurts them. I think it will.
Way overpaid! He couldn't catch a cold. He had so many drops last season.
That's what they were saying on NFL network that this will be the last ridiculous signing, because it's starting to cause all these releases. Believe it when I see it. These players are gonna get all the money any way ya look at it as long as teams have cap space.
Wallace now has five drops in six games this season, which accounts for 10.4 percent of his targets. This is very unusual for Wallace, who had only dropped passes on 2.9 percent of his targets in his first three seasons in the NFL, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He had never dropped more than four passes in a single season.
That is from October 23rd, or about six games into the season. Regardless of what ESPN or NFL reports, I'm not sure if I believe that Wallace dropped one pass the remainder of the season.
Aside from the drops, Wallace was mailing it in so much last year that the USPS should issue him his own stamp. I hope Miami knows what they signed up for.
