To little surprise, Mike Wallace has agreed to a contract with the Miami Dolphins, according to various reports.
ESPN's John Clayton reports the five-year deal is worth "up to" $65 million with $30 million of that guaranteed. He played last season for the Steelers for a salary of $2.7 million.
Wallace officially became an unrestricted free agent at 4 p.m. at the start of the NFL's 2013 calendar year. The 524 pending free agents, though, were allowed to negotiate with teams since Saturday under new league rules.
Wallace played four seasons for the Steelers since they drafted him in the third round in 2009 from Mississippi. He caught 235 passes for 4,042 yards and 32 touchdowns.
