Report: Mike Wallace might actually end up returning to the Vikings
Apparently, the Vikings' separation with Wallace was amicable enough for him to consider returning.
The Vikings cut Mike Wallace on Tuesday, but they didn't sever all ties with the receiver. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, there's a chance Wallace ends up back in Minnesota after testing free agency.

The Vikings, who traded for Wallace just last March, seemingly had enough of his contract and lack of production (39 receptions, 473 yards, two touchdowns) when they released him. So, why would they bring him back? Furthermore, why would Wallace want to come back?
Even if the two sides had an amicable ending to their professional relationship, even if they can work out a cheaper deal this time around, they're just not a good fit for each other. Wallace has one particular skill: He goes deep. The Vikings and Teddy Bridgewater aren't very good at that aspect of football. There's a reason why Wallace pieced together disappointing statlines in Miami and Minnesota after thriving with the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger.
