there was no info concerning this and Im sure Wallace will try his best to create a bidding war unless we offer way above what people think. The headline is misleading
Give me more than this. Not saying it will not happen, but people are using sites and sources I have never seen or heard of.
this site said nothing and I doub its true at this point. I think it could very well happen but I dont think anyone has this info yet and I doubt Wallace has made up his mind
I think the article is only assuming this
This source is from a steelers website off aol.com news. Its already a done deal. The contract is 6 yrs for 60 million. Tuesday Mike Wallace will be a Dolphin!!
I prefer to wait until Tuesday at 4:00 PM to be convinced. News articles are not always the most reliable sources around. When I see the local/national news coverage of him actually being named the Dolphins new WR, then I'll celebrate.
The Breaking tag has been getting raped lately
HIIIIGHLY doubt he'd already accept a 10mil/yr offer when he was initially asking 12 mil. He'd wait longer and try to get
the most money possible IMO.
yay................:baghead:Ted Ginn III has arrived.
That's funny, but wrong, lol.
Not true at all, lol.
Plus, I like Ginn. He made far more plays in his time than Hartline ever has. The issue w. him was where he was drafted and what he was being paid. If he came at the right price, Miami would do well to pick him up right now... did you see how Baltimore FEARED to punt to him at the end of the SB? Flacco even asked the team to leave the sideline and tackle him if need be, lol. He made some plays in the SB that no one on Miami can make, right now.
But Wallace is a more complete WR than Ginn. So never fear, lol.
Can I break your neck if this proves false?
Mike Wallace To Sign Contract With Dolphins On Tuesday!!
You seriously use that flacco quote? End of the game there could of been a rolling beer can back there and flacco would of said that.
Please read the article before starting a thread. It's all assumptions. That said, lets do it
dont even wanna think about how refs decided to not call pass interference on the ravens late in superbowl straight bs.
Not to get off topic but from what I remember there was quite a bit of pushing off on Crabtree's part as well
Rewatch the play the defender was holding him and Crabtree then tried to push off because he was straight being held for the whole play. I hate the notion in games that you dont call penalties at certain times, they had no problem calling pass interference on SF when they had them stopped on 3rd down.
I will just wait till tuesday for my news............
Well this wasnt news anyway more bs
I want Jennings but will settle for Wallace
I'm not sold on him at all.
Folks, lets be fair. Mike Wallace is very good receiver. If you don't think he is a top 5 guy... fine. If you don't think he has the fit of Jennings...fine. If you think he is making too much...fine. However, don't tell me he sucks. He will change the complexion of each game he plays.
with all the holes on this team, why give 75 million to one player when you can sign a Jared Cook or Dustin Keller...then draft a Tavon Austin and possibly Zach Ertz in the 2nd round...and still be able to sign an Eric Winston and possibly Andy Levitre.
Wallace is good, but the Steelers didnt go to far with him this past year.
In his first four years in the nfl he has 4042 yards with 32 td's. yea he really sucks. This guy will immediately make our offense considerably better. Also reports are th pats wan him so to get him now is twice as good. So people stop complaining about the money. It's not your money and the price is what th market dictates. We just paid 6mil a year to a guy that caught 1 td. So 12 for a guy who catches 8 sounds about right.
The name of the game is moving the chains, NOT making an occasional big play. Hartline is twice the player Ginn was (or ever will be). If both were the only 2 UFA available on Tuesday, Hartline would be receiving all the interest, NOT Ted Ginn. Real GM's recognize productive players far better than you ever could. Being uninformed and sarcastic is a bad combination.
"IF" true.....And "IF" hes getting that much,I'm afraid we're sacrificing too much on "1" player....by not being able to spend $$$ shoring up other needs.I'd rather draft either Patterson,Allen,or Eifert. And then be able to get Guys like Cook,Winston,and maybe Goldson(also pricey).
I like Keller and Cook as athletic weapons, but they are both ****ty blockers.
I didn't like him because of his price tag. I don't really mind the guy as a player, he's a fast guy that can get past some corners in this league. I just hope my friend (steelers fan) was wrong about him disappearing in the 4th quarters and dropping 3rd down conversions... He said he was a staple #2 receiver in their offense. He also told me Antonio Brown has always been the better more reliable receiver between the 2. This pretty much got me to watch some games and sure enough there was Wallace dropping balls in the later quarters. He's a monster for deep balls though (when he can hold on to the ball).
6 years 60 million is what? 10 per year? Hope we won't regret this like the Marshall fiasco :rolleyes2:
The answer to the question "Jared Cook or Dustin Keller?" is "Tyler Eifert or Martlellus Bennett".
If you are the #1 FA why the hell would you sign on the first day. Gonna be a bidding war.
I'm his defense SB Nation is a solid website for teams (I read the Fins team page often) and this is specifically the Steelers page so I Imagine the writer has some kind of connections, HOWEVEVER it still seems to me that it's his opinion this will happen nothing heard from sources. Although it can't be bad that someone plugged in with the Steelers (job is to write about team) feels we land Wallace.
I want Wallace but will settle for Jennings.
For me, it's how it should be when you get in that area of the field. They had 3 tries before that. Honestly I doubt they get in even if they had 5 downs.
Odds are where ever Wallace signs he will do so within the 1st hour, maybe even the 1st minute of Tuesday 4 PM. He and his agent have been very busy negotiating this deal for at minimum weeks now, at least since the NFL combine. We know for a fact they've been doing so since 12 AM Saturday morning.
Because you're the number one free agent. You're the first one everyone calls and its not like the offers are going to get better as teams sign everyone else. Also, as noted, they've had at least a week to hear pitches and the whole offseason so far to look over their options.
The way the NFL free agency market typically works, the longer you're out there, the more you and your agent get worried.
Albert Haynesworth signed his monster deal shortly after FA opened. If Wallace knows he can lock down a contract that NO ONE else is gonna offer, he will absolutely sign shortly after 4 PM on Tuesday.
I hope this does not turn into “Peyton Manning Part Deux”
did you ever think that maybe, just maybe wallace really wants to be a phin?
That would be weird. Last I heard, no one wanted to be a Dolphin. Then again, maybe that was overblown and, anyway, if the money is right a player will go almost anywhere. Even Buffalo.
You shouldnt be able to hold a player for almost 5 yards esp in that end of the field where it would benefit the defense more to hold. Thats a part of the game though refs are human but I seriously think they went with the idiotic NBA mentality. A flag to me is a flag at any point of the game esp when its that flagrant.
The fact that you even consider Ginn to be a receiver is a joke. Hartline has made plenty of plays for us, whereas Ginn would bolt for the sideline on the rare occasions that he actually made the catch.
And I agree if you take that attitude that a flag is a flag then there should have been TWO flags thrown on that play, they both were holding. For me the WR initiated the contact, he ran into the DB. The DB had every right to defend his space. IMO that's what the REF's saw and simply made a judgement call. I have zero issues with it. I really dislike when REF's insert their calls to decide games. NBA officials do it way too often, and I hate it.
