Well duh. If Mike Wallace didn't have straight line speed he'd be in the Canadian football league. His other wide receiver attributes are average at best.
Mike Wallace can't hold Santonio Holmes jock.
Will I miss the speed? Yup.
Replace it with decent speed, good hands and good route running (can be found through free agency or the 2nd round of the draft) and won't miss him.
Read this guys bio
He's a free agent, 6'3" and his attributes and cons remind me a lot of Mike Wallace.
Difference? Guy can probably be had for 2-4 million a year and he's 2" taller than Mike.
I understand but honestly the negatives they are saying anyways, outweigh the additional 2 inches. He has problems in tight coverage and holding onto the ball with big hits - thats a problem we've already had to deal with. I dunno - he certainly couldn't be any worse.
