Dolphins' Ross says Mike Wallace apologized to Hickey, Tannenbaum


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) After sitting out the second half of the season finale over reportedly getting into a halftime argument with coaches, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said Monday that Mike Wallace apologized to general manager Dennis Hickey and executive vice president Mike Tannenbaum, reports the Miami Herald.

Despite apologizing for his actions during the season finale, Wallace was still traded to the Vikings for a fifth-round pick.


Dolphins trade Mike Wallace to Vikings


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Mike Wallace landed a $40 million deal with the Dolphins two years ago. 

Failing to live up to expectations with two consecutive seasons below 1,000 yards, the Dolphins have traded Wallace and a seventh-round pick to the Vikings for a fifth-round pick, CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora confirmed. 

ESPN was the first to report the story

Wallace will now join a receiving group that already features Cordarrelle Patterson and will have second-year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater throwing him the ball. 

La Canfora also reports that no changes are expected to Wallace's contract upon arrival

Wallace caught 67 passes for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014. He signed a five-year, $60 million deal with the Dolphins in 2013. 


Report: Dolphins again trying to deal Mike Wallace


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) The Dolphins are again looking to trade WR Mike Wallace

Earlier in the offseason, the team looked into trading the receiver, who was benched for the second half of the season finale after a halftime argument. 

Unable to reach a deal with another team, it appeared Wallace would stick with the Dolphins. However, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Friday's trade for Kenny Stills has put Wallace back on the trading block. 

The Dolphins have room under the cap to keep both Stills and Wallace. 


Mike Wallace on taking a paycut: 'I'm not about to do something too crazy'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace told Josina Anderson of ESPN on Monday that the $3 million figure of his $9.9 million salary for 2015 became fully guaranteed last March. Wallace told her that he's happy playing in Miami because "it is a nice place to play football," and that he would consider a paycut.

"Like I said, I am willing to help out the team, but at the same time I'm not about to do nothing crazy either," Wallace said. "I'll definitely help the team out, but it has to be reasonable -- what I feel is reasonable."

When asked what he felt was reasonable, he said: "I don't know. I have to see what exactly what my agent and the team is talking about and whatever I feel is reasonable. It's not set like this is what it is. If we come to an agreement, I'm with it. Like I said, I'm not about to do something too crazy. I still have a family that comes first."

Wallace has failed to reach 1,000 yards with the Dolphins in either season after recording that mark twice with the Steelers in his first four NFL seasons. Last season, he turned 115 targets into 67 catches for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns. It was the first time he has scored 10 times in a season since 2010.

Mike Wallace's father: 'He thinks he's going to stay' with Dolphins


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Burnell Wallace, the father of Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace, told Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald that although the uncertainty has been "tough" for his son, he expects him back in Miami next season.

"Right now, he's been talking to them," Burnell Wallace said. "He thinks he's going to stay there. He doesn't have a problem staying. [But] they really don't know. I really can't give you a definitive answer."

Wallace, who signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Dolphins prior to the 2013 regular season, was the third highest-paid receiver in the league in 2014 behind only Percy Harvin and Calvin Johnson. He is owed a $3 million roster bonus on March 14.

Wallace hasn't lived up to expectations in relation to his big contract, and was benched in the final game of the 2014 season after reportedly getting in a halftime argument with team personnel. He has failed to reach 1,000 yards with the Dolphins in either season after recording that mark twice with the Steelers in his first four NFL seasons.

Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill clears air with Mike Wallace


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Dolphins' WR Mike Wallace was benched in the second half of the season finale, and it's uncertain if the team will keep him in 2015. 

The Dolphins can save $6.9 million by cutting Wallace in the offseason, but his quarterback has his back. 

Ryan Tannehill told the Miami Herald he settled any issues with Wallace after the tumultuous final game. "We cleared the air," Tannehill said. "There's no problem there."

Despite that, Tannehill isn't sure if Wallace will return. 

"I like Mike," he told the Palm Beach Post. "He’s a talented player and we’ll see what happens. It’s tough to lose a guy that works hard day in and day out at practice, but at the end of the day it’s a reminder that it’s a business. It doesn’t matter the kind of player you are or the type of relationship you have, it comes down to numbers."


Dolphins WR Mike Wallace interested in return to Steelers


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Though the Dolphins are shopping Mike Wallace to prospective suitors, there is one team that is of interest to the speedy receiver. 

According to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, Wallace has interest in potentially returning to the Steelers. Of course, the Steelers would have to decide if they'd be willing to take on a contract that's going to have a $12.1 million cap figure for 2015. 

Wallace has underperformed in relation to the five-year, $60 million contract he signed before the 2013 season. He's failed to reach 1,000 yards with the Dolphins in either season after recording that mark twice with the Steelers in his first four NFL seasons. 


Report: Mike Wallace's days with the Dolphins could be numbered


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald confirmed an NFL.com report that the Dolphins have indeed discussed the possibility of trading Mike Wallace this offseason. Salguero also added that Miami has also discussed various other options, including asking him for a paycut and even keeping the embattled wide receiver. However, Salguero suggested that Wallace's days in Miami are likely numbered.

Wallace, who signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Dolphins prior to the 2013 regular season, was the third highest-paid receiver in the league behind only Percy Harvin and Calvin Johnson. A resolution on Wallace's future won't likely come until $3 million of his salary becomes guaranteed on March 15.

According to Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel, the Dolphins aren't interested in restructuring the final three years and $32.9 million left on Wallace's contract.

"Mike is a guy who is under contract for now. We're discussing all our options," executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said on 940 AM WINZ Thursday morning, via the Sentinel. "Coach [Joe] Philbin, [owner Steve] Ross, Dennis [Hickey] and myself, we've talked. For now Mike is under contract, and we'll see where things go from there."

In two seasons with the Dolphins, Wallace totaled a combined 1,792 yards and 15 touchdowns. But after recording two 1,000-plus seasons in four years with the Steelers, Wallace has yet to crack the 1,000-yard threshold with Miami. He hasn't lived up to expectations in Miami, and was benched in the final game of the 2014 season after reportedly getting in a halftime argument with team personnel.


Report: Dolphins contemplating trading WR Mike Wallace


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) The Dolphins are looking into the possibility of trading wide receiver Mike Wallace, according to a report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport

In two seasons with the Dolphins, Wallace totaled a combined 1,792 yards and 15 touchdowns. But after recording two 1,000-plus seasons in four years with the Steelers, Wallace has yet to do so with Miami. 

Wallace signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Dolphins prior to the 2013 regular season. Wallace has not met expectations in his first two years with the franchise. This fact caught the eye of Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, who made an unprovoked comment about Wallace's contract at a press conference on Tuesday. 

"Mike Wallace got $10 million [per year]," Bisciotti said. "I don’t think anybody thinks that was a good deal.


Report: Dolphins expect some turnover at the wide receiver position


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) The Dolphins have told people that there will be some turnover at the wide receiver position, leaving the fate of Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson up in the air, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Miami has talked to Wallace's camp about the idea of taking a paycut next season. According to Jackson, a resolution won't likely come until his $3 million of his salary becomes guaranteed on March 15. Wallace had 67 catches for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014, but he was benched in the final game after reportedly getting in a halftime argument with team personnel. He will count $12.1 million against the salary cap next season.

Hartline signed a five-year, $30.775 million contract in 2013. His current cap number for 2015 is $7.3 million. He is coming off a disappointing season where he caught only 39 passes for 474 yards and two scores. Gibson's cap number for 2015 is $4.3 million. Both Hartline and Gibson have not been told what Miami plans to do with them.


Dolphins leave Mike Wallace out of 2015 ticket video


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) The Dolphins released a 2015 season-ticket promotional video on Tuesday. While highlights from most of the team's key contributors were included in the video, WR Mike Wallace didn't appear. 

Wallace's omission could be interpreted as a sign that the team isn't sure of his future as a Dolphin. 

Wallace had 67 catches for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014, but he was benched in the final game after reportedly getting in a halftime argument with team personnel. He will count $12.1 million against the salary cap next season. 


Dolphins' Hickey has 'good conversation' with Mike Wallace


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) The Dolphins are trying to figure out what to with receiver Mike Wallace and his sizable contract this offseason. Carrying a $12.1 million cap figure, the Dolphins' front office may want to try and reduce that number through a restructured deal.

The Miami Herald reported Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey met with Wallace for dinner recently, with Hickey saying that the two "had a good conversation."

"Always feel like we have an open door with all of our players," Hickey said.

However, Hickey is remaining non-committal with what the Dolphins plan to do with Wallace at this time.

Wallace signed a five-year, $60 million deal with Miami in 2013. In 2014, Wallace recorded 67 catches for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns.


Report: Dolphins mulling asking Mike Wallace to restructure deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The report adds that it's "highly questionable" whether Wallace would be open to a restructured deal. The receiver met with general manager Dennis Hickey recently and reportedly wants to make things work in Miami. However, he carries a $12.1 million cap hit for 2015, and $3 million of his 2015 salary becomes guaranteed on March 14. The Dolphins would take a $6.6-million cap hit by releasing Wallace, creating $5.5 million in cap room.

Wallace caught 67 passes for 862 yards while scoring 10 touchdowns in 2014.

Dolphins owner Ross unsure if Mike Wallace will be back with team


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was the latest person to weigh in on the Mike Wallace situation Friday, according to The Miami Herald. When asked if Wallace will be back with the team next season, Ross said: "I don't think anyone really knows."

Wallace's status with the team has been in question since he was benched for the second half of the 2014 season finale against the Jets because he reportedly challenged the coaches on their playcalling and gameplan at halftime.

Wallace is scheduled to earn $9.9 million in 2015, with $3 million of his salary guaranteed if he's on the roster the first week of March.

Wallace finished the 2014 season with 67 catches for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns in 16 games. The 10 touchdowns tied a career high. However, he finished with less than 1,000 receiving yards for a third straight season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2015) New Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum did his best Thursday during a radio interview to avoid directly addressing wide receiver Mike Wallace's status with the team.

Sources told the Sun-Sentinel that coach Joe Philbin benched Wallace for the second half of the 2014 season finale against the Jets because he challenged the coaches on their playcalling and gameplan at halftime.

"I want to go down there and be a good listener," Tannenbaum told WQAM. "Two sides to every story."

Wallace is scheduled to earn $9.9 million in 2015, with $3 million of his salary guaranteed if he's on the roster the first week of March.

"We'll make the most responsible decision for us possible," Tannenbaum said.


Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace uncertain of future with Miami


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

After wide receiver Brandon Gibson told reporters Sunday Wallace was frustrated with not being involved as much as he wanted, Wallace said Monday he wants to reutrn to the team in 2015.

However, he doesn't know if the team will want him, according to the Sun Sentinel.

"I'm not the general manager or anything, or the head coach," Wallace said. "I'm not sure."

He signed a five-year, $60 million contract in 2013 with Miami and releasing him would cost $5.2 million against the cap next year. 

Wallace had 67 receptions for 862 yards in 2014, down from the 73 catches for 930 yards he posted in 2013. However, Wallace doubled his touchdown output, going from five to 10 in 2014.

The two touchdown catches from 16 and 7 yards was Wallace’s first multiple touchdown game as a Dolphin. Wallace now has 10 touchdowns on the season which he also accomplished in 2010. Wallace was targeted five times and caught all five passes for 58 yards.

The Dolphins host the Jets Week 17.


Dolphins' Mike Wallace posts first 100-yard game in nearly a year


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace surpassed the 100-yard threshold for the first time this season during Sunday's defeat to New England.

Wallace came down with an acrobatic 32-yard touchdown reception with five seconds remaining in the first half. He was targeted seven times and finished with five catches for 104 yards and a score in a 41-13 defeat. His last 100-yard came Dec. 15, 2013 against New England.

Wallace has 62 receptions for 804 yards and seven touchdowns on the year. He'll have two games to crack the 1,000-yard mark for the first time since 2011 with the Steelers, starting Week 16 vs. Minnesota and Week 17 vs. N.Y. Jets.


Mike Wallace finds the deep ball


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace showed some surprising signs of life in Week 15, as he and Ryan Tannehill connected on a few deep balls in a 41-13 loss to the Patriots.

Wallace had 104 yards in the game, his first 100-yard performance of the season, and much of it came via the deep ball. Connecting on passes over the top has been something Tannehill and Wallace have struggled with, but 82 of Wallace's 104 yards came on two receptions, including a 32-yard touchdown that saw Wallace actually go up and fight for a score.

For a player with Wallace's speed, his time in Miami has been characterized by a surprising lack of big plays. He has yet to break a play of 60-plus yards since joining the Dolphins, something he did in three of his first four seasons. Though Sunday's effort was a good sign, it might be too little too late for Fantasy owners to trust Wallace. Heading into Week 16 against the Vikings, Wallace is a tough player to rely on.
