Head coach John Harbaugh expects Wallace to remain with the Ravens in 2017, Ryan Mink of the team's official site reports. "But my anticipation is that Mike Wallace will be a part of our team, and I know he's working to be a part of our team, and I'm planning on having him back next year," Harbaugh said Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Last offseason, Wallace landed in Baltimore on a two-year contract, which included a lofty $8 million team option for the 2017 campaign. Considering he topped all Ravens receivers with 1,017 yards, including 415 yards after catch, last season, the organization clearly deems the 30-year-old worthy of a roster spot. There's no indication whether the front office is seeking a restructured deal with a more team-friendly salary cap hit. However, after Steve Smith's retirement, quarterback Joe Flacco likely prefers to have a modicum of continuity within the passing attack, which may include Wallace in addition to wideout Breshad Perriman and tight ends Dennis Pitta and Benjamin Watson (Achilles), among other holdovers, in the fall.
