Five best fits for Mike Wallace
Why Mike Wallace struggled last season and where he could land in 2013
- AP Photo/Joe HowellMike Wallace struggled last year in Pittsburgh. Where could he wind up in free agency?
Mike Haynes being traded from the Patriots to the Raiders in 1983. Charles Haley's trade from San Francisco to Dallas in 1992. Deion Sanders signing with the 49ers in 1994 and then agreeing to terms with the Cowboys in 1995.
What do all of these moves have in common? They were the rare types of personnel acquisitions that, although quite costly, were worth every penny because they turned those clubs from contenders into Super Bowl champions.
Roster opportunities of that caliber don't come around very often, so when they do, it behooves the top teams to do all they can to close the deal.
That should be the mindset of many organizations when it comes to acquiring the services of unrestricted free-agent wide receiver Mike Wallace. This might seem like hyperbole because Wallace didn't even finish in the top 30 in the league in receptions or receiving yards last season, but the facts are that he has an extraordinarily rare skill-set level that can vault a passing offense into the statistical stratosphere.
