Barry Jackson usually has good sources. I think if Wallace has another year like last year where Tannehill can't hit him deep and where Wallace doesn't have the skillset to fight for a pass then these rumors will come true. He then would just not fit our scheme.
Another thought is that if the Dolphins do draft a good WR that can stretch the defense deep then they may want to get rid of his cap burden. Tannehill will be due a big contract at some point if he continues to improve as he has his first two years.
I expect to see a breakout season from Wallace this year.
Here's where RotoWorld got their information.

### Several Dolphins have wondered among themselves why Miami has been looking so closely at first- and second-round receivers, and their suspicion is that the Dolphins want to replace Mike Wallace in a year or so. Several players believe some of these coaches aren’t big fans of Wallace, and “Joe Philbin is running that place,” one prominent agent said.
But Wallace will have a big cap hit whether he's here or not in 2015. If Wallace is on the team in 2015, his cap hit would be $12.1 million. If he’s cut, it would be $9.6 million. If he’s traded, it would be $6.6 million.
