Ravens Pick Up WR Mike Wallace’s 2017 Option

Jeff Zrebiec reports that the Ravens have exercised WR Mike Wallace’s option for the 2017 season.

There was some talk that the Ravens could move on from Wallace and take the cap saving. However, it appears as though he’s still part of their plans.

Wallace, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Steelers back in 2009. He spent four years in Pittsburgh before signing on with the Dolphins in 2013.

Wallace was later traded to the Vikings before the cut him loose after one season. The Raven later signed him to a  two-year, $11.5 million contract that included a $4.75 million signing bonus.

In 2016, Wallace appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens and caught 72 passes for 1,017 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
