    well this is the weekend where things like that come to fruition..agents and teams exchange numbers and get a good feel for whats available to their players...but getting them on the plane means you are in their market the main thing though is once they are there getting them to sign obviously...and that doesn't always happen

    I don't like this guy for the $12m per he will probably demand. However, if Cleveland and Miami get into a bidding war, Miami dominantly has the upper hand. Miami and Cleveland city-wise are incomparable and in completely different leagues. I could see Wallace accepting $1.5-$2m less just to come here over Cleveland. I have been wrong before, but we'll definitely see what happens. This man will likely not last a week into free agency.

    No reason to get too excited until a deal is done.. See Eric Winston or even QB Alex Smith....

    LOL Cleveland would hate us if we got Wallace over them. It's the Decision all over again!

    The same as I do now. In fact I would be suprised if he wasn't on a plane to Miami sometime during the first week of FA. All that means is he is coming to discuss business, think of how many players/coaches that have visited Miami and left without a deal getting done.

    I'll be excited when the breaking news is "Mike Wallace and the Miami Dolphins have come to terms on a blah blah blah deal worth blah blah blah dollars"

    I would have 3 of miami's finest show Wallace what he can have. Offer him $10M per season and tell him he can keep the girls for motivation.

    It's not my money so I could careless about the contract.

    My first thought would be "**** yeah Ginger man!"

    My second thought would be "it's a shame I can't buy his jersey. ****ing Mike Dee".

    And lastly " please don't pick #19"

    It would feel like we're desperate to fill that need because we don't want to take the chance of doing so in the draft. To have that need filled gives the FO a ton of flexibility with those 5 early picks, imo, have the new regime really make their mark on the whole roster. We're in a precarious position with a young QB who has no one to stretch the field. But Wallace's recent production does not warrant 12mill/year. I understand the thinking (that we kinda feel like we have to reach), but I wouldn't be crazy about paying him that.

    I'd be all about it. I'd be extra pissed if he left without a contract and signed with the mother****ing Browns.

    I would be very happy and feel Ireland is finally opening his wallet and hopefully this will be the start of a great offseason.

    Have no faith that him coming to visit would get anything done but at least that would be better than ireland's epic fail with Peyton manning

    Why not, everyone else goes there for a nice little vacation, oh yeah and talk about posibily playing for the phins. But the problem lately is that they all leave and go sign somewhere else. It can't be just the money, so what are they doing to scare people off?

    I'd be excited...but can i ask one thing? Can we NOT flip the F#$% out if he leaves Miami without a deal? I totally expect him to visit different teams, and to be honest i don't know if i want him coming here first. I want him signed, but the business is what it is and he WILL make other stops to shop his services.

    I just hope the Dolfan Universe can keep its cool and not meltdown. I definitely think the media freaked Peyton Manning out.

    I'm not getting my hopes up anymore. If it happens it happens. More then likely it won't.

    i have a feeling if its not one of those midnight deals where he agrees to the terms at midnight on the plain here to sign that its not going to happen. If he leaves here he aint coming back to sign. We either have to land him early or its time to get jennings.

    I would feel that the team is taking a step in the right direction and not being "Dave Wannnstedt" about free agency, rather, they were showing some balls and going after what they want/need!

    It would be an improvement over "Dan Marino has personally asked Mike Wallace to meet with the Dolphins front office, as a favor to him." And then watching our guys fly to Cleveland for a meeting, only to get a backhanded "I'll think about it."
