The Miami Dolphins are poised to go on a bit of a shopping spree, once the March 12th Free Agency period opens.  As of this moment, the Dolphins have roughly $45 million to spend on resigning their own free agents and acquiring free agents that will hit the market on March 12th.  We can only guess as to what the Dolphins plan for the upcoming offseason will be, but we are beginning to hear rumblings about what the team is thinking.

If Stephen Ross and Jeff Ireland have made one thing clear this offseason, it’s that they plan on being aggressive and won’t be afraid to spend money.  That’s why I can see the Dolphins doing whatever it takes to sign Wallace.  We’ve known for some time that it would likely take a deal, similar to the one Vincent Jackson received last year, to sign Wallace this offseason.  Last year, Jackson signed for 5 years/$55 million with the Buccaneers.  Peter King of SI.com said this morning that he wouldn’t give Wallace as much as Jackson.  If the market agrees and Wallace signs for less than $10-11 million per season, great. (cont’d on page 2, click here)
