Baltimore Ravens: Learn About The Newest Ravens
- Everything You Need to Know About Mike Wallace
Mike Wallace began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wallace was a player the Ravens had a hard time containing back in his Steelers days. His speed and Ben Roethlisberger’s cannon arm were a lethal combination. He had two seasons with the Steelers with over 1,000 receiving yards. In 2013 he signed a big contract with the Miami Dolphins.
Wallace’s days in Miami were not bad, but the Dolphins never got what they expected out of Wallace. Wallace put up some decent numbers. In two seasons he had racked up 137 receptions and had scored 15 receptions. The biggest problem the Dolphins had with Wallace is that they didn’t throw the ball deep enough to get the most out of him. This is a problem the Vikings would have with Wallace when they signed him in 2015.
Wallace had the worst statistical year of his career in 2015. He grabbed just 39 passes for 473 yards and three touchdowns. Wallace was critical of Vikings quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater. The moral of the story with Wallace is that he needs to be taken care of.
