Wallace has 4.3 speed and will compete for playing time at wide receiver, but really get his chance as a return man in 2009. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Mike Wallace News
03/13/13 - WR Mike Wallace signed with the Dolphins on the first day of free agency. He agreed in principle to a five-year deal that includes $30 million in guarantees, NFL Network first reported Tuesday.
Wallace is expected to easily exceed the five-year, $56 million deal Dwayne Bowe signed with the Kansas City Chiefs last week. Bowe received $26 million in guarantees. Wallace, 26, has 27 career catches of at least 40 yards and brings a big-play dimension to the Dolphins' offense that has been lacking. Wallace has a career average of more than 17 yards per reception. He spent four seasons in Pittsburgh and caught 32 touchdowns, including eight in 2012.
12/28/12 - WR Mike Wallace did not practice for the second straight day because of a hip injury. It will be determined Friday whether he plays or not on Sunday.
12/28/12 - WR Mike Wallace's four-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers may have come to a close as the wide receiver was one of three players the team placed on injured reserve.
Offensive tackle Mike Adams and cornerback Curtis Brown also were shut down a day before Sunday's season finale at home against the Cleveland Browns.
Wallace sat out practice this week with a hip injury after catching a season-low one pass for 13 yards in last week's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals that saw the Steelers get eliminated from playoff contention. Wallace, who staged a lengthy holdout before the 2012 season, is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason and finished with a career-low 13.-yard average per catch. The Steelers' fastest wide receiver, Wallace wasn't as big of a threat with the offense dialing back the vertical passing game under new offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
12/24/12 - WR Mike Wallace caught one pass for 13 yards, his lowest output of the season and the third lowest of his career.
12/09/12 - WR Mike Wallace had his first multiple-TD game of the season, catching two to give him eight, matching his total from last season and giving him the team lead.
