In somewhat of surprising news today the Baltimore Ravens have interest in former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Mike Wallace. Wallace was recently cut by the Vikings earlier this week after spending one season with the team after being traded from the Miami Dolphins. The Vikings received 11.5 million in additional cap space by cutting him.
Ravens clearing cap space... told they'd like to add a tight end. And looking seriously at Mike Wallace too. If the price is right.— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) March 9, 2016
Wallace is known as a speedy receiver but with a bit of inconsistencies. Wallace on his career has 414 receptions for 6,307 yards and 49 touchdowns. Wallace certainly has familiarity with the AFC North as he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2009. During his four seasons with the Steelers, Wallace had two 1,100 yard seasons and averaged 17.2 yards a catch.
Since leaving the Steelers, Wallace hasn't reached 1,000 yards receiving and hasn't averaged anything above 12.9 yards a catch since.
If Wallace were to sign with the Ravens, he would be added to the wide receiver depth chart which consists of notable players such as Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken, Breshad Perriman, Jeremy Butler and Michael Campanaro.
