According to Garafolo’s source, the Dolphins are expected to make Wallace an offer on Tuesday that will be in his price range.
Wallace is believed to be seeking as much as $12 – $13 million annually in his next contract.
Garafolo adds that they also met with free agent Brandon Gibson as well, but he’s seen as more of a “fallback option.”
We have him listed as the No. 1 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald is “deeply encouraged” that the Dolphins will sign free agent WR Mike Wallace.
Owner Stephen Ross wants to add another playmaker to their offense and clearly Wallace could provide them with the deep threat that they’ve been without.
Dan Pompei of the National Football Post writes that “those who should know speculate” that Wallace could average as much as $13 million per season in his next contract.
Salguero adds that WR Wes Welker could be another option for the Dolphins to consider as well.
Alex Marvez of Fox Sports reports that a source has informed him that the Miami Dolphins are the “lead dog” to sign free agent WR Mike Wallace next week.
Wallace, 26, reportedly prefers to play in warm weather climate and the Dolphins have more than enough money to get him under contract.
“He prefers warm weather,” said the source.
Many have had Miami as the favorites to sign Wallace for awhile now, so it’s hardly surprising to hear that they could be in the lead right now. The Vikings and Patriots have come as other speculative options, but the odds appear to be in favor of the Dolphins.
