Jason La Canfora reports that the Miami Dolphins have renewed attempts to trade WR Mike Wallace at this weeks owners meeting.
La Canfora mentions that NFL teams are currently doing homework on Wallace, however, his contract makes a trade difficult.
La Canfora adds that some people around the league have wondered if a Mike Wallace for DeSean Jackson trade would make sense for the two teams.
Its worth noting that La Canfora first reported that the Dolphins were interested in trading Wallace, as well as other players like DE Dion Jordan and DE Cameron Wake.
Wallace, 27, is entering just the second season of his five-year, $60 million contract that included $30 million guaranteed. He has a staggering 2014 base salary of $15 million and will count $17.25 million against the teams salary cap.
Jason Fitzgerald mentions that the Dolphins may have to eat between $8 t0 $9 million of Wallaces contract in order to trade him.
The Eagles have reportedly run into issues trying to trade WR DeSean Jackson due to his current salary, so its hard to imagine the Dolphins finding a taker for Wallace at this price.
Wallace almost certainly would not rework his contract to facilitate a trade. We'll have to see if anything comes of this in the next few weeks.
this is why I am glad we didn't throw a big bag of cash at Wallace for his services , now the Dolphins are stuck with a pricey mediocre WR that eats up a lot of cap space , I'm glad we have a smart front office that can find players to make our system work , overpaying for players will never bring home a championship , 73 receptions and 930 yards is not worth a base salary of 15 million ...good luck ridding that salary Miami
