Fins’ Wallace Takes To Twitter To Clarify Remarks

Mike Wallace took to Twitter this week to make it clear that while he has been very vocal about how comfortable he is with the Miami Dolphins, he’s not out to bash his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

On Monday he tweeted: “I want it to be known that I have nothing but love and respect for everybody” on the Steelers. He said the Steelers players “are my brothers for life beyond football so to all the people who think I take shots at them it is totally misleading.”

Since joining the Dolphins, Wallace has said Ryan Tannehill can be as good as his Ben Roethlisberger, creating headlines by comparing the second-year quarterback to the Super Bowl-winning veteran. He also recently said the Dolphins have a “college mentality” and are “hungry” due to the team’s youthful roster, different than the veteran roster he left in Pittsburgh.

Wallace wanted to make it clear, however, in his tweets that he is thankful for his time in Pittsburgh and is “forever grateful for everything they have ever done for me.”

Meanwhile, with Wallace’s departure, Antonio Brown steps into the No. 1 receiver role in Pittsburgh.

While the rest of his teammates worked out in black shorts during organized team activities on Tuesday, the fourth-year wide receiver darted through traffic in yellow football pants even though the first live practice won’t come for another two months.
