Report: Dolphins allegedly looking to trade WR Mike Wallace

Mike Ehrmann

Whether it's just a message being sent to the top prize in 2013 free agency or there's a legitimate feeling in Miami it's time to move on remains to be seen.

Buyer's remorse is allegedly creeping through Miami, as Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting, again, the Dolphins are looking to deal 2013 free agent acquisiting Mike Wallace.

How serious those talks is up in the air, but with Philadelphia allegedly looking to deal Desean Jackson, it's an interesting thought whether Wallace would get jettisoned back to the state of Pennsylvania.

The thought of Wallace dealing with Eagles fans and Philadelphia media is entertaining, to put it mildly.

A big part of the reason neither Wallace nor Jackson are likely to have teams lining up is because of the size of their contract. They're unwilling to restructure a deal as part of a trade unless they're being traded to a team of their choosing.

In Wallace's case, he allegedly turned down more money from the Minnesota Vikings to play in Miami - a city he was known to visit frequently, based on Tweets he sent out the last two years.

It wouldn't seem he'd be all that interested in restructuring his one-year-old contract, especially considering he has a snowball's chance on South Beach of getting that same kind of money again - not to mention the fact the Dolphins would take one of the largest salary cap baths in history if they did trade him.

Let's just consider this a new general manager in Miami sending a message to his extremely expensive wide receiver.
