Dolphins training camp: Deep-threat Wallace ready to prove worth
DAVIE, Fla. -- Mike Wallace's jersey was soaked, sweat rolled off his forehead like a small waterfall, and the thick, cut-it-with-a-knife humidity hung in the air, even though we were under the cover of shade from the hot, afternoon Florida sun.
"You mind if I kneel down?" Wallace asked as we readied to chat.
Wallace, the Miami Dolphins' speedy receiver, looked beat. He had just spent the afternoon running deep routes, crossing routes, slants and many other routes, working hard to overcome that dreaded label he has been given:
Waste of money.
When Wallace signed a five-year, $60-million deal with the Dolphins in the spring of 2013 as free agent, he was expected to become a star receiver, a Pro Bowl player, maybe even a potential All-Pro.http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/writer/pet ... rove-worth
