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

03/14/15 - WR Mike Wallace was traded from the Dolphins to the Vikings Friday (March 13) with a seventh-round pick in this year's draft for a fifth-round pick.
The Vikings had pursued Wallace in 2013 and reportedly offered more money than the Dolphins, but he chose the warmer climate of South Florida over frigid Minnesota winters.
He lasted just two seasons of his five-year, $60 million contract with the Dolphins and will count $6.6 million against their salary cap in 2015.
Wallace had two 1,000-yard seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who drafted him in the first round in 2009. But, with Miami, he recorded 73 receptions for 930 yards and five touchdowns in 2013 and 67 catches for 862 yards and 10 scores in 2014.
Wallace allegedly was unhappy with his role in Miami and ended up on the bench in the 2014 season finale after arguing with coaches.
In Minnesota, Wallace will join veteran receiver Greg Jennings, Charles Johnson and tight end Kyle Rudolph as second-year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's weapons.
12/22/14 - WR Mike Wallace had two TDs receptions vs. Minnesota, giving him 10 for the season. That ties the career best he established in 2010 with Pittsburgh. Wallace had a career-best 73 receptions last season.
