The Miami Dolphins are vying to become relevant in the AFC East and challenge the New England Patriots. Jeff Darlington of NFL.com reported on Tuesday that the Dolphins have reached an agreement with former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace.
Wallace was the top free agent wide receiver in this year's free agent market so the Dolphins are winners so far in the early bidding wars of NFL free agency which begin Tuesday at 4 p.m. Wallace is expected to sign the contract when he visits the Dolphins' facility at 6 p.m. ET.
This gives the Dolphins a down the field threat for 2nd year quarterback Ryan Tannehill and adds to a receiving crop that includes the recently re-signed Brian Hartline. The Dolphins are expected to remain active as they are one of a few teams with some money to spend.
In 2012 with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Wallace brought in 64 receptions for 836 yards and 8 touchdowns. This move will definitely help a Dolphins offense that will lose RB Reggie Bush.
