Mike Wallace is no longer a Miami Dolphin after getting traded last week to the Vikings and it appears the Pouncey twins — both former teammates — are applauding the move.
In a snippet from an exclusive interview with CBS Miami set to air during Tuesday’s newscast in the 6 p.m. hour, Maurkice Pouncey delivered an uppercut to what appears to be his former Steelers teammate.
“First of all, in my opinion he’s a coward, Maurkice said. “I never want a guy on my team like that man, to walk out on your band of brothers.”
Although the full context isn’t clear, he’s likely referring to the Week 17 fiasco when Wallace reportedly would not check back into the game after being told to do so by coach Joe Philbin. Meanwhile Mike Pouncey, Wallace’s more recent teammate, doesn’t seem sad to see Wallace and some others go.
“Obviously our organization felt the way about some guys,” the Dolphins offensive lineman said. “They got those guys out of our football team and I think it was the right move for everybody.”
Update: Mike Wallace has responded.
