Default Mike Wallace turned down more money with Vikes?

The Miami Dolphins handed Mike Wallace the richest contract among this year's free agents, good for $27 million in guarantees and $60 million over five years.

To hear Wallace's father tell it, the speedy wide receiver's pay day could have been even higher. Mike Wallace Jr. claims his son actually turned down more money from the Minnesota Vikings. The St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks were among the teams that also showed interest, according to Wallace's dad.

A native of New Orleans, Wallace has had designs on heading south since the Pittsburgh Steelers neglected to meet his long-term contract demands last offseason.

"The (Vikings) had come to the point where they were telling him, 'You don't have to live here, just be here during the season,' " Wallace's dad recently told The Miami Herald. "He wanted to get out of that snow and cold weather."

The mutual attraction between Wallace and the Dolphins was the worst-kept secret heading into the free agency period.

Miami doesn't have state taxes, right?

I hope he enjoys the warm weather as Darrelle Revis is holding him to 0 catches.

I don't blame him. At least Tannehill has an arm, I lost count of all the open receivers Ponder missed downfield last season.

Ponder without Peterson is just a mess.

revis is coming off a broken wheel. wallace will eat his lunch and then leave him in the dust. that match-up is nothing more than the qb getting him the ball out front.

"revis" island will look like gilligans island if they dont have safety help over the top.

in other words "revis island" is more like revis penensula with the skipper there to help.
