Mike Wallace unsure if he'll return to Dolphins next year
Tuesday December 30th, 2014

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace said he is not sure if he is going to be with the team next season.

Wallace was benched for the second half of the season finale, a 37-24 loss to the New York Jets. Wallace says he wasn't upset with the coaching staff and did not get into any arguments with anyone despite being targeted only once and not catching a pass in the first half.

Wallace did not show up to answer questions after the game, instead wide receiver Brandon Gibson took questions for him.

On Monday, Wallace spoke up for himself and was asked about his status for the 2015 season.

"I'm not the general manager or anything, or the head coach," Wallace said to the Sun-Sentinel. "I'm not sure."

BANKS: Fallout from a busy Black Monday

Next season will be Wallace’s third with the team after he signed a a five-year, $60 million in 2013. He caught 67 passes for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. He is scheduled to make $9.85 million in base salary next season, with a $5.2 million salary cap hit if the Dolphins decide to release him.

Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin did not answer questions about the team’s plans for Wallace next season.

"Nothing has changed right now," Philbin said. "I haven't spent one second thinking about 2015 yet."
