    Bleacher saying Wallace to Fish is done deal

    Per Palm Beach Post.

    http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/theda...-mike-wallace/


    1. All signs point to Dolphins landing Mike Wallace.
    The Dolphins have made little secret of their desire to upgrade their receiver corps for next season and surround Ryan Tannehill with better weapons. And a lot of the talk has focused on Mike Wallace, who is the youngest (26), fastest and arguably the best receiver available in free agency.
    The Dolphins can’t sign Wallace until 4 p.m. Tuesday, but all signs point to him landing in Miami, perhaps minutes after the new league year begins tomorrow. For example:
    * There’s Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, stating this morning in his MMQB column that “Miami didn’t have much, if any, competition for a big-money deal ($11 million or more a year) for wide receiver Mike Wallace.”
    * ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeting this morning, “League-wide expectation is that WR Mike Wallace winds up in Miami with the Dolphins.”
    * USA Today’s Mike Garafolo reporting that the Dolphins spent the weekend “courting receivers” and “the team expects to put forth an offer that will be in Wallace’s price range.” Garafolo also mentions St. Louis Rams WR Brandon Gibson as a target of the Dolphins, and this report jibes with our report from the Combine, that the Dolphins were active in meeting with several receivers two weeks ago.
    Now we’ll add our own two cents: We hear from someone we trust that it’s a “done deal” that Wallace will be signing with Miami.
    Assuming it does come to fruition, Wallace will be the Dolphins’ first big signing since 2010, when they traded for Brandon Marshall and gave him a $48 million contract, and signed LB Karlos Dansby and gave him $43 million.
    Wallace, who has 32 touchdowns over four NFL seasons with Pittsburgh, would give the Dolphins the speedy deep threat they sorely lacked last season.
    “He’ll translate well to that offense,” former longtime NFL executive Bill Polian said this morning on ESPN. “Brian Hartline is a possession receiver. Davone Bess is a possession receiver. They need Mike Wallace, or someone like him.”
    And it appears that very soon, the Dolphins will have him.

    Not loving that at all. Wallace isn't a top 5 WR necessarily, but he's a helluva lot better than what they had there before.

    Wallace/Hartline/Bess is a pretty decent WR corp.

    Although its not official yet, it is bad news. Especially if we dont have a competent CB that can cover him.

    Dolphins are going to take some big steps next year. They may still land Jared Cook and are targeting Eric Winston. They are trying to load up their offense and as much as it pains me they could be a really solid team next year.

    If they also manage to re-up Bush it's going to be really tough to play them.

    Phins will probably be looking at 9-11 wins next year and a WC playoff spot.

    Yeah but we have a REX lead defense.

    Wallace is very good, but if they are paying him 11 million a year, it will impair their ability to spend in other areas. Wallace is not 11 million a year good.

    Totally agree, but I think he steps up and has a real solid year.

    Phins are certainly looking like they're going in the right direction. We were lucky to split with them last year; unless Tannehill does struggle in 2013 it won't get much better for us.

    Sophomore slump would imply that his rookie year was a good one. I wouldn't really go that far. He was under 60%, and was 12/13. There were times that he looked very good, but that alone won't cut it. There were times that he also looked lost.

    The Fins are putting a good team around him, but it remains to be seen what will become of him. As we all know round these here parts, the upward trajectory of a QB is far from guaranteed.

    The only reason i don't like Wallace going to Miami, is because we're going to trade the one guy on our roster that would take Wallace out of the game on a routine basis.

    Cromartie should be able to hold his own....but he isn't Revis.

    QBs who were less productive than Mark Sanchez last year.

    Tim Tebow
    Troy Aikman
    Brett Farve
    Brett Ratliff
    Me
    Steve Young
    Steve McNair

    See, Sanchez was better than multiple HOF QB's last year, me, and a dead guy. That's a list!!
