Albeit this year’s draft class is loaded with depth and talent at wide receiver, the Dolphins—which have $44 million in cap space (currently third most in the NFL)—are expected to strongly pursue one of the three big-name players at the position on the open market. Given his past with Joe Philbin in Green Bay, Greg Jennings would seem to be a logical option.  However, at 29-years-old and coming off an injury-plagued season, Jennings may not be the best decision. Dwayne Bowe (also 29) is from Miami and has previously expressed interest in returning home, but he may not fit the ‘Phins bill as a true field-stretching receiver that will open things up for the rest of the offense.

Dolphins quest for speed starts with Steelers receiver Mike Wallace

It’s no secret that the Miami Dolphins are looking for a true number one receiver, and Pittsburgh’s Mike Wallace fits the bill.
