so let me get this straight...
Mike Wallace is worth more than Anquan Boldin and Wes Welker put together?
Vikings releasing wide receiver Mike Wallace

Once upon a time, Mike Wallace was one of the prizes of the opening days of free agency.
Today, he’s unemployed.
According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, the Vikings are releasing the veteran speedster, who has failed to live up to his potential in two cities since his big contract.
The Dolphins traded him to the Vikings rather than continue to pay him, and he responded by catching 39 passes for 473 yards last year. That didn’t mesh with the nearly $12 million he was owed this year.
The Dolphins gave him what was billed as a five-year, $60 million contract in 2013, but since leaving Pittsburgh, he’s never gotten come close to being a 1,000-yard receiver like he was with the Steelers.

Some serious deflation going on with "Young Money." But hey, if he's willing to work hard and adapt his game, maybe he can catch on with some team (for a modest contract) as a 4th-5th receiver/ST player like DHB.
Lets resign him for the vet minimum

Why would we want the bum? Two teams, two failures. His fan boys can't blame two separate QBs can they?
The reality is he is athletic but limited in WR skills. Ben made him look better than he ever was and we all now know that AB helped him far more than he ever helped AB as some tried to claim.

If Wallace had balled out in his last year, he would be welcomed back...but, he didn't, so he isn't...
Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.
It's been fun watching Flipper's career go nowhere since he left. Especially if, like me, you were correct about his value all along.
