Ravens Hosting WR Mike Wallace For A Visit, Could Still Return To Vikings

Update:

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports confirms reports that free agent WR Mike Wallace is scheduled to visit with the Ravens tonight and into Tuesday.

  • According to La Canfora, the Ravens have “real interest” in Wallace.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that it’s still possible free agent WR Mike Wallace could return to the Vikings, despite releasing him earlier in the week.

  • Rapoport adds that Minnesota treated Wallace well upon cutting him loose.
  • Tom Pelissero mentioned that the Vikings didn’t think he played poorly for them last year, and actually wanted to have him back, but not at his previous price.
  • According to Rapoport, the Ravens have been the most interested team in Wallace since he became available.

Don Banks of SI.com reports that the Ravens are bringing in free agent WR Mike Wallace for a visit on Monday.

  • According to Banks, the Ravens’ interest is contingent on Wallace accepting a “low-budget” deal.
  • Banks wonders if the Steelers could have interest in Wallace following the news that Martavis Bryant is facing a possible year-long suspension.
  • However, Banks mentions that the Ravens are unlikely to get into a bidding war with anyone for Wallace.
  • Banks adds that the Ravens view Wallace as vertical threat similar to what they had with Torrey Smith a few years ago.
  • Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Media previously reports the Ravens were “looking seriously at” Wallace if the price is right.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Wallace to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.

Wallace, 29, was in the fourth five-year, $60 million contract that included $30 million guaranteed when he was released by the Vikings in a move that freed up $11.5 million in available cap space on Tuesday.

In 2015, Wallace appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and recorded 39 receptions for 473 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 96 receiver out of 121 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 2016 Free Agents list.
