His contract is out of control. Having said that the dude was burning people right and left last season. He always seemed to be open but Tannegarbage would throw it way too late or not at all. Not sure why I watched so many Dolphins games last season but before most of you talk s**t about the guy maybe you should go watch him play. His contract makes him unattainable but he's a better receiver than he gets credit for. He's more than just a speed deep threat.
I have to disagree there. He's a straight-line vertical threat, that is pretty much it. For what it is worth, he's very good at it, but he's not a #1 WR by any means, not a complete wide receiver, would be a nice complementary piece to go along with a guy like Dez Bryant, Calvin Johnson, even Michael Crabtree.
He'd be a perfect fit on the 49ers for what they need, but at the half the salary...at best. His hands aren't overly reliable, he is a lazy route runner, gives a half-hearted attempt when it comes to run blocking. He's inconsistent at best and not a Top 10 WR, even if he's being paid like one.
For Pittsburgh, Antonio Brown is a better overall receiver, not as fast as Wallace, but better in pretty much every facet of the game besides "going deep."
