After a quite week or so of free-agency for the Philadelphia Eagles, they slip in a move today at the wide receiver position by adding veteran Mike Wallace, per Peter Schrager. The deal is reportedly worth up $4 million total for one year.
Wallace, age 31, is doing very well for his age, statistically. Last season he received 52 receptions for 748 yards and four touchdowns. He was originally drafted in the 3rd round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. He ended his rookie year with an impressive six touchdowns, only to receive ten touchdowns the following year. Mike Wallace doesn’t suffer many injuries. He’s never gone a year with less than two touchdowns.
The last two seasons he was with the Baltimore Ravens and registered a total of eight receiving touchdowns to his stats. Obviously, Wallace is looking to continue his spectacular year as an Eagles’ starting wide receiver whom is to partner with Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor.
Eagles are giving former Ravens’ WR Mike Wallace a one-year deal worth up to $4 million, per source.
