    The Dolphins finally got the guy they wanted. After striking out with Peyton Manning, Jeff Fisher the Dolphins targeted a guy and were able to deliver. Today the Dolphins took a major step forward in bolstering their receiving core. A team that sorely needed speed and playmaking ability signed one of the leagues fastest playmakers. RT @SedanoShow: Mike Wallace has signed with the #Dolphins!!!!@560WQAM The deal is set to be a 5 year deal with the numbers to be confirmed. The Dolphins knew Wallace wouldn’t come cheap and did everything they thought they had to in order to bring the wide out to Miami. Mike Wallace has the ability to make big plays, find the end zone and brings a dynamic aspect to this offense that was sorely missing. Wallace’s deep ball ability helps the defense respect the big play and opens up other options for this offense that struggled making plays last season. Wallace who ran a 4.33 40 yard dash at the NFL scouting combine is viewed by most as the NFL’s fastest WR. Wallace is coming off 2 3286 yards 26 touchdowns in his past 3 seasons.  Wallace’s signing could also lead to a change in culture from a team that was afraid to throw the deal and was run forces and now is finally catching up to the rest of league. Wallace has also average 17.2 yards per receptions a very respectable number. In 2 games against the Dolphins Wallace piled up 2 touchdowns and 117 yards. The first and biggest piece of free agency is now settled, there is still plenty of work left to do with this roster however this is a move many thought had to happen. Credit to Ireland for finally closing.
