WR Mike Wallace optimistic about fit in Vikings offense
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Vikings burner Mike Wallace has been in search of an offense that best fits his skill set since leaving Pittsburgh. He believes he has found one.

Wallace was stuck in a West Coast system in Miami, which resulted in two seasons with weaker numbers than he produced in his heyday with the Steelers. His 12.8 yards-per-catch average with the Dolphins was a far cry from the 17.2 he achieved previously. He caught 12 passes of 20-plus yards in Miami after snagging 44 in four years with Pittsburgh.

For a receiver that was clocked at 4.33 in the 40 in 2009, those statistics in Miami are unworthy of his speed. He is seeking a quarterback that can fire the ball downfield and will be given the freedom to do so. He is hoping it's Teddy Bridgewater. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner is vowing to cut the offense loose, which pleases Wallace.

"I think it's more so [like] my first four years, he told ESPN. "It's a vertical offense, [rather] than a short, West Coast offense. You go down the field a lot more here, more what I'm accustomed to."

Vikings WR Mike Wallace on his speed: Nobody can run with me
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Vikings wide receiver Mike Wallace was not shy in expressing confidence in his speed, reports the Pioneer Press.

"Without a doubt, I'm the fastest player in the NFL," Wallace said. "If somebody feels foggy about that, we can [race]. I'm never going to back down from competition."

Wallace was recently acquired in a trade with the Dolphins. He struggled to connect on the deep ball with Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill during the last two seasons, but he expects that to change with the Vikings.

"The last couple of years I haven't been able to showcase my separation, but I'm positive that it will happen now," Wallace said.

Dolphins' Ross says Mike Wallace apologized to Hickey, Tannenbaum
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After sitting out the second half of the season finale over reportedly getting into a halftime argument with coaches, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said Monday that Mike Wallace apologized to general manager Dennis Hickey and executive vice president Mike Tannenbaum, reports the Miami Herald.

Despite apologizing for his actions during the season finale, Wallace was still traded to the Vikings for a fifth-round pick.

Dolphins trade Mike Wallace to Vikings
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Mike Wallace landed a $40 million deal with the Dolphins two years ago. 

Failing to live up to expectations with two consecutive seasons below 1,000 yards, the Dolphins have traded Wallace and a seventh-round pick to the Vikings for a fifth-round pick, CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora confirmed. 

ESPN was the first to report the story

Wallace will now join a receiving group that already features Cordarrelle Patterson and will have second-year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater throwing him the ball. 

La Canfora also reports that no changes are expected to Wallace's contract upon arrival

Wallace caught 67 passes for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014. He signed a five-year, $60 million deal with the Dolphins in 2013.

Report: Dolphins again trying to deal Mike Wallace
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins are again looking to trade WR Mike Wallace

Earlier in the offseason, the team looked into trading the receiver, who was benched for the second half of the season finale after a halftime argument. 

Unable to reach a deal with another team, it appeared Wallace would stick with the Dolphins. However, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Friday's trade for Kenny Stills has put Wallace back on the trading block. 

The Dolphins have room under the cap to keep both Stills and Wallace.
