Dolphins sign wideout Mike Wallace to five-year deal
Miami, FL, United States (4E Sports) – The Miami Dolphins achieved their number one priority this offseason by signing free-agent wideout Mike Wallace to a five-year, $60 million deal.
The Dolphins bolstered their receiving corps by inking the 25-year old Wallace, who’s entitled to pocket $30 million in guaranteed money.
Wallace, the 84th overall pick in the 2009 Draft, was selected to his first Pro Bowl game in 2011 when he racked up 1,193 receiving yards with eight touchdowns.
Wallace entered the free-agency period as the top wideout available this offseason, drawing the attention of several teams. However, the Dolphins, who also signed Baltimore Ravens linebacker Dannel Ellerbe to a five-year, $35 million contract Tuesday, continued their spending spree.
Ellerbe emerged as the Ravens’ best defensive player during their Super Bowl run last season. He recorded 89 tackle and 4.5 sacks for the NFL champions in 2012-2013 campaign.
