Miami Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace has been labeled the fastest receiver in the league, but also labeled a one-trick pony by some, a label that some teammates jus don't see. "It's not, 'If I can't get the deep ball, I can't do anything else,' " cornerback Brent Grimes said, via The Miami Herald. "He has good hands, can run other routes. He's not a one-trick pony." Quarterback Matt Moore also is one that thinks Wallace is much more than just a deep ball threat. "What was impressive to see was what he can do with the ball (on short patterns)." "Everyone talks about the deep routes, but Ben Roethlisberger would sometimes get him the ball quickly and just let him go," Moore addded. Per Chris Wesseling  of NFL.com: ' ESPN analyst and ex-NFL coach Herm Edwards recently parroted the canard that Wallace is a one-dimensional receiver who needs to learn routes, leading film buff Ron Jaworski to retort, "He can run patterns!" Dolphins cornerback Richard Marshall attested that Wallace "runs better patterns than some might think." Before Todd Haley installed a quick-hitting, dink-and-dunk offense with the Steelers last season, Wallace was fourth in touchdown rate and first in yards per reception among all receivers over the past decade. As one of less than a dozen NFL receivers capable of drawing double teams and still producing elite numbers, Wallace could be the most important pickup of the 2013 offseason. '
