The Miami Dolphins burst into free agency Tuesday by agreeing to terms with high-profile wide receiver Mike Wallace, the top free agent on the market and one of the best deep threats in the NFL. Wallace agreed to terms on a five-year contract worth $65 million, with $30 million guaranteed. Wallace more than fulfills the Dolphins' stated goal of wanting to get play-makers this offseason. The speedy free agent from the Pittsburgh Steelers, provides the downfield big-play threat Miami’s pedestrian passing offense has been missing for years. Last season, he had 64 receptions for 836 yards and eight touchdowns. Two years ago, he had 114 receptions for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns. The fact that Wallace agreed to terms with the Dolphins on Tuesday, the first day teams were able to sign free agents, also speaks volumes of the job general manager Jeff Ireland was able to do in recruiting the four-year veteran.
