Vikings cut Mike Wallace

The Minnesota Vikings corrected a mistake Tuesday. They cut wide receiver Mike Wallace, saving $11.25 million against the salary cap. The former Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins wide receiver struggled after being traded to Minnesota from Miami for a seventh-round pick. He caught just 39 passes for 473 yards and two touchdowns. Wallace went to the Pro Bowl in 2011.
The Dolphins signed him to a five-year, $60 million deal, but it didn't work out.
