After the Dolphins traded away Brandon Marshall last offseason for 10 cents on the dollar, they were left with a bunch of No. 3 receivers, but no real No. 1′s. That may change in 2013. The Dolphins’ top free agent target this offseason is Mike Wallace, according to the Miami Sun Sentinal. Wallace could be demanding a contract in the 5-year, $60 million range, according to the report. Wallace signed a franchise tag with the Steelers last offseason and held out for much of training camp. He caught 39 passes for 756 yards and six touchdowns. The Ole Miss product’s best season came in 2010 when he had 60 receptions for 1,257 yards and 10 touchdowns. Greg Jennings has hinted multiple times since becoming a free agent that he would like to reunite with his former Green Bay offensive coordinator and current Miami head coach Joe Philbin. The Dolphins may not be able to sign both star receivers, but they do have tackle Jake Long coming off the books, and he’s unlikely to be re-signed. Miami’s No. 1 receiver last season, Brian Hartline, is also a free agent. Hartline emerged from that aforementioned group of No. 3-type receivers to have 74 receptions for 1,083 yards and one touchdown. Slot receiver Davone Bess is signed through 2013. It looks like second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill will have a lot more help in 2013 than he did in his rookie year. Tannehill was overshadowed by Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson as a rookie, but he turned in a respectable season with 3,294 yards passing, 12 touchdowns, 13 interceptions and a 58.3 completion percentage.
