Dolphins WR Mike Wallace Takes To Twitter To Clear Air About Recent Quotes

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace has taken to Twitter Monday evening in attempt to clear the air about several comments that he made this past week to the local media that were easily perceived to be shots at the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Wallace, as you can see in the attached tweets, wanted to make it known that he is forever grateful for the opportunities the Steelers organization gave him and that he still feels as though the players on the Steelers roster are his brothers.

In his most recent comments, that were reported by the Miami Herald, Wallace suggested that his new team is much more hungrier than the team that he was on in Pittsburgh and that he had a bit of the short-timer disease last year in addition.

These were not the first comments that Wallace has made since signing with the Dolphins in March that could be taken as him taking shots at his former team, however, as just a few weeks ago Wallace suggested that his new quarterback Ryan Tannehill could possibly throw the ball down field further than his former quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could.

Is this all much to do about nothing? Yes, it certainly could be, but Wallace should be informed that he has not been very good with his choice of words. There is absolutely no reason for him to speak about his former team or teammates unless it is 100% edification. Using the Steelers or his former teammates as a means of comparison to his new team or teammates should be avoided by Wallace at all cost.

I would suggest that Wallace only use the standard professional athlete clichés moving forward as anything else that is likely to come out of his mouth or Twitter account will only wind up getting him in trouble.
