Miami bound

It was predicted, anticipated and widely reported. But only now can we say it’s official.

Free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace is now a member of the Miami Dolphins. Per ESPN’s John Clayton, it’s a five-year deal worth up to $65 million.

Mike WallaceWallace caught 64 passes in 15 games with the Steelers last season.

Considered to be the best wideout in this year’s free agent class, the addition of a blazing deep threat in Wallace gives the Miami offense a new and much-needed dimension. In the first season under new head coach Joe Philbin and rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins ranked just 26th in the league in passing offense (198.9 yds/gm) and 27th in scoring (18.0 pts/gm).

A four-year veteran out of Mississippi, Wallace amassed 235 receptions for 4,042 yards and 32 touchdowns in 63 games with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 26-year-old joins a Dolphin offense that currently has Brian Hartline and Davone Bess as its starting wide receivers.

So approximately one year after sending big-play wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears in a trade, the Dolphins jump back into the mix and bring another big-play threat to town.
