Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported a while back that Dolphins wanted to trade wide receiver Mike Wallace. This clearly never happened and now Wallace says he wants to return kicks.
“I might get back there for kickoff returns,” Wallace told Sky Sports. “I just want to be on the field making an impact for my team. I’ve always wanted to return kicks ever since I’ve been in the NFL.”
But returning kick offs is a dangerous jobs and Wallace is one of the Dolphins highest paid receivers.
“My coaches in Pittsburgh let me do it in the preseason but they didn’t want to chance anything during the regular season given that I was playing a lot on offense,” Wallace admitted. “At this point of my career, I just want to get the ball in my hands and make some plays.”
