With the money they have I don't think Wallace is a bad signing. They really didn't have any kind of threats on offense.

You do realize teams have a minimum they have to spend
Actually, they don't. The Cap Floor is not a hard floor like the Salary Cap is a hard ceiling.
If you look up Article 12, Section 9 of the CBA (page 84) you will see that it is actually an equation that works out to be 89% of the Average of the salary cap over a 4 year span. And, any difference is only paid out after that 4 year span is up.

I think that we head of Lloyd, Colvin and Bodden and many others.
Besides, the issue with Thomas was that he was awful AFTER his injury. We should never pay big bucks for a player who will be injured.
We didn't hear of Colvin prior to his being signed. Same with Rodney Harrison.
Lloyd was a different animal all together because of the McDaniels factor. And Lloyd wasn't signed immediately nor was he signed for big money. Neither was Bodden for that matter. Bodden's extension was where Bodden got big money.
Come on, MG. It was clearly implied that we were talking about BIG MONEY free agents.
Back to the topic at hand - Ellerbee and Wheeler are merely good LB's, there's nothing great on record from them. And the truth is we don't really know about Ellerbee yet, take him off that Ravens strike machine and who knows what he'll look like? $12M+/yr for two good/unknown quantities - that's straight out stupid.
$30M solid for Mike Wallace borders on lunacy also. He's an excellent WR, a difference maker, the kind of guy we need on the Pats. But he doesn't strike me as a dominating player, he's more of side show type, incredible as that show may be. And what will Tannehill say in two years when he's up for the $$ - um, Wallace got $30M, that means I get $40M! And if he hasn't been good enough to ask for that kind of dough then the whole Wallace thing is dud anyway.
