Dolphins looking to trade Mike Wallace

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

If it's Jason La Canfora reporting, proceed with caution.
The Eagles and Dolphins should just swap receivers.

and its about the Dolphins, he is always wrong about stuff with the Dolphins
I like Dion Jordan,
I think in the right scheme he could be amazing

Damn, 3rd pick after only 1 season

To be fair, I thought he and Sharrif Floyd were going to be beasts.
How many posters around here were angry the NIners didn't drop a boatload of money on Wallace? Come on, now. Be honest. It happens every off season.
After the independent investigation of what kind of bullying was going on w/Fins, I'm amazed Philbin still has a job. You'd think after Sean Payton got suspended for a year, Philbin would get at least somewhat hammered, if not fired. Who knows how many Dolphin players don't exactly feel that comfortable with what was uncovered. Maybe Wallace is one of 'em...or Miami now realizes how much they overpaid him, or both.

I knew 3 was too high for Jordan.

As for Wallace and the Dolphins...oh well. I love our FO despite the b***hing that goes on around here about them at times. He had one good season as a fly route runner and they decided to throw the bank at him. Anybody with sense knew better

Edit: Also, this is Jason LaCantreportfors**t. Grains of salt need be taken.

I think the Dolphins are more to blame than Jordan, why they decided to use him in a 4-3 is stupid.
I think he would be better along Aldon, both have the same athletic skill set and both can switch from OLB to DE.
I think Jordan's best position is to play as a pass rusher in a 3-4 scheme like ours

Just needs to add about 20lbs and he is good to go
I wonder if this is indicative of the perceived strength of this year's WR class...teams like Miami and Philly trying to unload these huge contracts with the hope that a suitable replacement can be found in the draft.

People called me crazy when I said this dude was a one trick pony. Very good #2 or #3 WR, but shouldn't be getting paid anywhere near like a #1.

This + buyer's remorse
Already? LOL. So Dolphins and Buccaneers sign huge contracts to Wallace and Revis and after one year, they regret it.

Will we still see webzone posters begging the front office to sign big stars in free agency?

Boom. Nailed it.
