NFL trade rumors: Mike Wallace trade from Miami Dolphins to Philadelphia Eagles?

NFL trade rumors suggest a Mike Wallace trade by the Miami Dolphins to the Philadelphia Eagles could take place. NFL trade rumors about Mike Wallace are nothing new, but it seems that the Dolphins really are pushing hard to deal him before the 2014 draft takes place. According to a report from CBS Sports on Wednesday (March 26), a problem with any deal has been the "hefty" contract that he has. The Dolphins definitely paid him a lot to come over from the Pittsburgh Steelers, but now action is being taken to end that relationship.

One of the teams that keep getting mentioned is the Eagles, as the team might be looking to replace DeSean Jackson at wide receiver. He had a great year in 2013, but appears to have rubbed people in the organization the wrong way. Enter Wallace, who could be an easy replacement on the roster, especially since he is used in a very similar fashion. There is also chatter of having both guys on offense, giving Nick Folk another weapon to work with in the 2014 season. That might be tough to work financially though.

There are other teams popping up in NFL trade rumors that involve Mike Wallace, but it doesn't seem that there are any serious contenders to take on that $15 million he is guaranteed next year. It seems that when the Miami Dolphins inked him to a five-year, $60 million deal the front office didn't seriously consider the impact it would have on them financially. At the end of the day, this is a situation that probably won't change much and fantasy football owners will likely still be watching Wallace as a member of the Dolphins for the next few years.

On the surface, it seems like a big mistake by Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey to shop a guy with so much money still owed to him. It would really take an act of desperation by another franchise to deal for a wide receiver that is getting paid top-tier money but who hasn't reached 1,000 receiving yards in a season since 2011 with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
