I’ll be honest, I was never sold on Mike Wallace on a number one wide out worth paying over $50 million. I especially didn’t think it made sense for the Minnesota Vikings who will reportedly play two of their next three seasons outdoors.
I know that Wallace did well playing outdoors in Pittsburgh, but Pennsylvania’s winters are a far cry from what one will see in Minnesota, and the Vikings need to invest in their vertical game, but I don’t think investing that much into one player would have been wise.
News broke almost immediately, however, that Wallace signed with Miami which was the expectation all along.
As a result, the Vikings are being rumored to be chasing every wide out in the world, other than Percy Harvin, of course. From Larry Fitzgerald to Victor Cruz to Sidney Rice to Danny Amendola to… well, the list goes on and on.
We’ll keep you updated when things grow legs longer than just a Twitter rumor. I’m here with you all night.
