Report: Dolphins not interested in trading WR Mike Wallace

Scott Halleran

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that Mike Wallace is not concerned about any trade rumours involving himself, because as far as he knows they are untrue. The Dolphins are vehemently denying any attempt to shop Wallace.

A week ago, CBS's Jason LaCanfora reported that the Miami Dolphins had resumed efforts to try and trade wide receiver Mike Wallace at the NFL owners meetings.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Wallace is not concerned about the trade rumours because as far as he is concerned there is absolutely no truth to them.

In addition, the Dolphins have been linked this off-season with trade rumours concerning not only Wallace, but Dion Jordan and Cameron Wake also.

They Dolphins are vehemently denying that they are shopping any of their players, including Wallace, but LaCanfora is sticking to his guns on this one.

Wallace was not the player the Dolphins hoped he would be last season when they signed him up to a mega bucks deal in 2013 free agency, gaining only 930 yards and 5 touchdowns. The receiver appeared to lack chemistry with second year quarterback Ryan Tannehill, most noticeably on those deep balls which Wallace is so well known for.

It seems unlikely the Dolphins would want to move on so quickly from Wallace, just one year after signing him to a 5 year $60 million deal. It would also be prohibitively costly for the Dolphins, as releasing Wallace would result in a large chunk of dead money counting against the Dolphins cap.

Jackson also notes that whilst Tannehill has been throwing to receivers the past two weeks, Wallace has been "out of town", however he has intimated that he wants himself and Tannehill to work on their chemistry over the off-season.
