    Say what you want about our receiver core, and I agree with a fair amount of the objections towards it. However, I'm glad that none of our guys are this selfish (or at least, openly so).

    This guy was a total idiot in Pittsburgh, and I found many of the comments last offseason that "we'd be strongly looking at Wallace" to be some of the most amusing comments I've seen on the board in years. The odds of Belichick thinking for one second about paying 12m per year to a WR like Wallace were about as good as him having Wilfork play QB.

    Wallace is a fine choice for 1/2 that money at 6m per year. A possible argument could be made for 7-8m like Victor Cruz, but even that's pushing it. Anything over that just points to teams being idiots, and fans playing too much Madden on their playstations.

    Perhaps you saw this beauty? :D

    OP - Patsfan2: "I think we should Break the Bank for this guy he is a proven WR already beat us in a SB. We Drafted his buddy in the Third the same year he came out. I think Nicks would be Super paired with Edelman and Dobson. Until we get Elite players on Offense who can stay Healthy we will NEVER win another forget about winning...make it to another SB. The Time is running out on Tom Brady"

    That article is such ****:

    So it's not completely crazy but it's extremely unlikely? Sounds contradicting to me. So Wallace thinking that he could catch 20-25 TDs a year (being modest about it) isn't "completely crazy?" Since 2010 his YPC has gone down every year (from 21 to 16.6 to 13.1 to 12.7 last year). He doesn't have the height to win the jump balls routinely although he does have speed to get behind a defense. But when that's your only strength, it can be accounted for. And easily in the NFL, assuming you have a decent safety playing deep.

    I'd say 5 more making for 10 just like he did in Pittsburgh he's far from a complete receiver like he's being paid for.

    I'd just say besides him there's far greater problems in Miami so it'll be interesting to watch them next year.

    He's not elite, either, but don't tell that to really insightful posters like that guy.

    If Mike Wallace was as good as he think he is, he'd be Calvin Johnson. Wallace is an undisciplined, one trick pony. He was a perfect fit for playing school yard football with Roethlisberger where he would hold onto the ball forever until Wallace got open. He is not a good fit any other system.

    And there were people here screaming that we should sign him, if I remember right.

    I'll take Antonio Brown or Manny Sanders.
