Baltimore Ravens: Grading The 2016 Free Agents
Mike Wallace had a fantastic start to his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2009-2012 but tapered off when he followed the money to other destinations. He had two unsuccessful stints with the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings, but ultimately found the Ravens.
He signed a 2 year, $11.5 million deal with the Ravens last summer. The move was a risk/reward situation, but one that could have a good payout. In my opinion, I think Wallace was worth the money last season. He eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark and provided a speedy target for Joe Flacco. He even got to burn his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, with a 95 yard touchdown reception in November.
While I thought Wallace had a good year, he seemed to disappear at times. One game he would be flying down the field for a touchdown and another game he would only have 1 catch. There is a chance he might not be back with the Ravens next season. The team could dump his salary to free up cap space. If he comes back, the consistency needs to be better.
