Former teammate calls new Viking WR Mike Wallace a 'coward'

Star Tribune Sports - Tue, 03/17/2015 - 15:09
Things did not end well in Miami for wide receiver Mike Wallace, which is presumably a good part of the reason the Vikings were able to trade for him last week in exchange for a fifth-round pick. Per the Star Tribune story after the deal was made: Wallace reportedly was on the trading block after wearing out his welcome with Dolphins coach Joe Philbin. According to the Miami Herald, the situation came to a head in the 2014 season finale when Wallace asked to be removed from the game. However, both Wallace and Philbin denied that report, saying that Wallace’s second-half absence was a “coach’s decision.” Wallace created an awkward scene in the locker room after that 37-24 loss to the New York Jets, asking teammate Brandon Gibson to speak to media while he stood silent. Well, things apparently are still not OK even though Wallace is gone. Miami teammates Maurkice and Mike Pouncey had some choice words for Wallace in an interview with Miami’s CBS affiliate. Here’s a link to a quick taste from an Instagram video. Below are the quotes tweeted out by the station: Maurkice Pouncey tells .@CBS4Sports former Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace. “He’s a Coward. I would never want somebody like that on my team” — CBS4Sports (@CBS4Sports) March 17, 2015 Mike Pouncey tells .@CBS4Sports about Dolphins Receiver Mike Wallace”I thought it was the right move for everybody,Glad we moved on for that — CBS4Sports (@CBS4Sports) March 17, 2015
