A few years ago, a wide receiver from Florida International made waves by tearing through the Louisville Cardinals defense en route to a career season for the Panthers. He was overlooked until the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, and Monday, a lot of personnel people look very dumb for passing him over.
When the Miami Dolphins went looking for dynamic playmakers last offseason, they targeted the biggest one in free agency, wide receiver Mike Wallace. But with nearly half the season over, Wallace is looking like a bust in his first year in Miami.
The Miami Dolphins have struggled to put a winning team on the field in recent years and 2013 is no different. The Fins have problems across the field with rookies, but the veteran struggles continue a growing and troubling trend for the Fins.
The Miami Dolphins brought wide receiver Mike Wallace in to blow the tops off of defenses with deep passing maximizing his speed. Through four games this season, Wallace hasn’t been able to use his speed and the Fins are struggling with the deep ball.
The Miami Dolphins hit the practice field again Wednesday and were at full strength in the wide receiving corps as Mike Wallace returned to the lineup, according to NFL.com.
Injuries are a part of every NFL training camp, but the Dolphins are starting to see injuries pile up at the position the team spent the most free agent money on this season, wide receiver.

If you’re looking for a Miami Dolphins rookie who may make an immediate impact on the team, you might want to focus on fifth-round draft pick Mike Gillislee out of the University of Florida.
Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland and the rest of the front office staff put together quite a package to land receiver Mike Wallace, but the numbers for that contract reveal just how much the Fins expect of Wallace.
While it’s been assumed that Davone Bess would remain the Miami Dolphins’ slot receiver; that may or may not be the case. According to the New York Daily News, the Dolphins and Jets are currently pursuing wide receiver Brandon Gibson.
