Miami still 'top dog' in chase for Mike Wallace

Chris Trotman

The Miami Dolphins are considered the front-runners to sign free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace.

Apparently no one told soon-to-be-former Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace it was plenty warm during training camp.

Wallace held out of training camp this past year in protest of his first-round restricted free agency tag. He had declined a contract offer from the Steelers, and elected to sit out instead of risk injury.

Now, the latest is the Miami Dolphins are the "top dog" for Wallace's services next season. Some of that is due to, as Fox Sports' Alex Marvez wrote, "he prefers warm weather."

So, in other words, the Steelers never had a chance last year anyway. That was fun, thanks for coming, be sure to tip your waitresses.

We'll send some love to our friends at The Phinsider, they do seem genuinely excited about the impending arrival of Wallace. And maybe it'll be a good thing for them there.
