Free agency is less then 24 hours away amd there are more rumors flying around then ever. The biggest is Mike Wallace will be soon joining the dolphins. There are a lot of reports that people around the league see Wallace going to the dolphins. That is both good and bad, Wallace wants to go where it is warm and get paid. Miami offers both, and so far is the best candidate. But the Dolphins were in this same spot last year with Payton Manning last year, it didn’t take long until a dark horse came out and Payton then landed in Denver.
Wallace, should end up in Miami though, Ireland knows he can not drop the ball anymore and he NEEDS to join the Dolphins. Miami has not had a true number one wide receiver since Brandon Marshall was traded last offseason. Wallace does something Marshall could not, he makes the players around him better. Marshall could not make any other player around him better. Wallace has the ability to open up areas for a Brian Hartline or Davone Bess to catch passes underneath.
The receiving core could also changing up more when free agency begins. Slowly talks are starting to heat up about the Dolphins possibly signing another receiver, Gibson from the Rams or Even Wes Welker who the Dolphins traded away just a few years ago. But to gain one of these it would be highly likely that Davone Bess may be on his way out of Miami.
Everything we have heard up to this point has been nothing but speculation. Nothing is going to happen until 4 o’clock eastern time. From then on Jeff Ireland will start his plan to make the Miami Dolphins a competitor in 2013.
