Armando Salguero reports that the Dolphins have not spoken to any team regarding a Mike Wallace trade at any point this offseason.
- La Canfora mentions that NFL teams are currently doing homework on Wallace, however, his contract makes a trade difficult.
- La Canfora adds that some people around the league have wondered if a Mike Wallace for DeSean Jackson trade would make sense for the two teams.
Wallace, 27, is entering just the second season of his five-year, $60 million contract that included $30 million guaranteed. He has a staggering 2014 base salary of $15 million and will count $17.25 million against the team’s salary cap.
Jason Fitzgerald mentions that the Dolphins may have to eat between $8 t0 $9 million of Wallace’s contract in order to trade him.
The Eagles have reportedly run into issues trying to trade WR DeSean Jackson due to his current salary, so it’s hard to imagine the Dolphins finding a taker for Wallace at this price.
Wallace almost certainly would not rework his contract to facilitate a trade. We’ll have to see if anything comes of this in the next few weeks.
