Change is coming for the Dolphins at the receiver position. Miami was ranked 17th in passing with 233.1 yards per game last season, and the immediate futures of several veterans are in question. Starting receiver Brian Hartline and slot Brandon Gibson could be salary-cap casualties due to their $5.95 million and $3.26 million salaries, respectively. The Dolphins must also decide what to do with No. 1 receiver Mike Wallace, who is due $9.9 million. Wallace was benched in the second half of Miami’s Week 17 loss to the New York Jets due to venting his frustration. It remains to be seen if both sides stay together or part ways. Either way, the Dolphins need to have a strong group of receivers around quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is entering his fourth season.
Fellow wideout Brandon Gibson told reporters that Wallace was frustrated with "not being involved as much as he wanted" in the offense. But will he be involved at all going forward?
Wallace told reporters Monday that he wants to return after signing a five-year, $60 million contract in 2013, but he isn't certain the team wants him around.
"I'm not the general manager or anything, or the head coach," Wallace said, per the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "I'm not sure."
Coach Joe Philbin -- who will be back -- was noncommittal about the future of his top pass-catcher, saying Monday: "Nothing has changed right now. I haven't spent one second thinking about 2015 yet."
Wallace enjoyed his best season in Miami under play-caller Bill Lazor, piling up 73 catches for 930 yards with five touchdowns. He went out of his way, though, to voice displeasure with the scheme after calling out Mike Sherman's attack the previous season.
