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.

12/16/14 - WR Mike Wallace (five receptions, 104 yards, 1 TD) had his first 100-yard game of the season against New England. He had a 50-yard reception on the game's opening play and a nice one-handed, 32-yard TD reception near the end of the first half.
12/14/14 - WR Mike Wallace made a one-hand catch of a 32-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill that was originally called incomplete before being reversed. Wallace had seven catches for 104 yards and showed his frustration after the game. "Same as last year," he said. "We had the season in our hands, we could do something about it and we dropped the ball. Again."
12/07/14 - WR Mike Wallace was mostly a non-factor on Sunday. The Dolphins' highest-paid receiver was targeted just four times -- two fewer than rookie Jarvis Landry. Wallace made three catches for just 39 yards. He was also overthrown for what would have been a touchdown on his fourth target.
