09/21/14 - WR Mike Wallace led Miami with five catches for 74 yards, but there were seven incompletions on passes thrown in his direction. His longest reception was for 30 yards, which isn't bad ... but it is not what the Dolphins expected when they signed him before last season. They thought they were getting a long-ball receiver, but Wallace has not had that kind of impact, mostly because he and QB Ryan Tannehill have not been able to find the right timing on deep throws.
09/15/14 - WR Mike Wallace's touchdown reception gives him 39 in his career. That's the most of any AFC wide receiver since 2009, Wallace's rookie season.

08/14/14 - WR Mike Wallace has been catching more passes from the JUGS machine of late than quarterback Ryan Tannehill as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
Wallace said he is "totally comfortable" with the offense, while acknowledging the system is still being installed with less than a month before the regular-season opener. He does expect to make his preseason debut Saturday and begin adjusting to the speed of live game action and working on his timing with Tannehill.
"Not so much as the plays, just the rapid fire of the offense you need to go, so you can have your endurance up," Wallace said of the benefits to getting into a preseason game. "Just two days off in this offense will have you gassed. You have to keep going and keep building your endurance every single day. So I definitely need to go out there and get some plays in."
