Titans signed WR Roberto Wallace, OG Casey Studdard and WR Michael Calvin to reserve/future contracts.
Wallace has an intriguing 6-foot-4, 225-pound frame, but couldn't crack the Dolphins' talent-deficient receiver corps coming out of camp. He'll have a hard time breaking into Tennessee's far more crowded unit next summer. Mon, Jan 14, 2013 05:23:00 PM

Free agent WR Roberto Wallace worked out for the Bucs.

It's Wallace's first-known workout since he was waived by the Dolphins. Wallace has ideal size at 6-foot-4, 225 pounds, but has consistently struggled to create separation since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2010. The Bucs are likely just updating their emergency list.

Dolphins waived WR Roberto Wallace.

Anyone who watched HBO's Hard Knocks saw this one coming. The coaches referred to the former undrafted free agent as "ankle weights Wallace," a reference to his lack of speed and separation ability.

Roberto Wallace operated as the Dolphins' fifth receiver "at best" in the team's third preseason game.

He had no catches, and the Miami Herald now suggests Wallace may not make the final 53 after playing behind Julius Pruitt and Marlon Moore, among others. The Dolphins' staff was initially intrigued by Wallace's physical tools, but he's proven to be an underachiever. Feel free to drop Wallace in Dynasty leagues.

Starting in place of the recently released Chad Johnson, Dolphins WR Robert Wallace caught just one pass for 11 yards in Friday's exhibition game versus the Panthers.

Recently dubbed "ankle weights" by the coaching staff on HBO's Hard Knocks, Wallace struggled to separate from Carolina's cornerbacks. Although he's allegedly put together a strong camp, "No. 1 receiver" Legedu Naanee has been invisible through two preseason contests. With the exception of Davone Bess in PPR formats, the Dolphins' passing game is hands-off in fantasy leagues.

WR Roberto Wallace was ripped by the coaching staff during Tuesday night's episode of "Hard Knocks."

Wallace ran with the first-team offense following Chad Johnson's dismissal, but the coaches aren't happy with him. "He doesn't seem to be moving forward at the same rate that the other guys are," receivers coach Ken O'Keefe said. "It doesn't seem like his legs are underneath him, he's not separating." During a film session, the coaches refer to the former undrafted free agent as "Ankle Weights" Wallace. We'd pump the breaks on any deep-league sleeper talk.

The Dolphins rewarded WR Roberto Wallace for his four-catch, 71-yard preseason opener by placing him with the first-team offense in Sunday's camp practice.

Largely a special teamer his first two NFL seasons, Wallace is emerging as a serious sleeper for a starting job in Miami. For some background, Wallace went undrafted out of San Diego State in 2010 despite running a 4.48 at his Pro Day at 6-foot-4 and 223 pounds. He only had 73 catches in his college career. Wallace has more talent than Legedu Naanee and is on the deep-league radar.

Roberto Wallace caught four passes for 71 yards in Friday's preseason debut.

Coming off a strong offseason, Wallace entered in the second quarter, catching a 21-yard pass from starter Matt Moore. All four of Wallace's catches went for at least 13 yards. Limited to special teams last season, the 6-4, 225-pound wideout could carve out a role in Miami's muddled receiver corps with a strong preseason.

Dolphins WR Roberto Wallace has stood out during offseason practices.

"Roberto is going to be a pretty good receiver in this league," David Garrard said. "When he puts it all together, he can be a big talent." Signed as undrafted free agent in 2010, Wallace has impressive size and speed, but has been mostly limited to special teams work so far. He has a chance to earn plenty of reps in the Dolphins underwhelming wide receiver unit.

Dolphins placed WR Roberto Wallace (quad) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Wallace was a special teamer and No. 5 wideout. The former undrafted free agent is under contract cheaply through next season, but will likely have to impress a new regime to stick.

Dolphins declared WR Roberto Wallace, CB Vontae Davis, LB Ikaika Alama-Francis, OL Ryan Cook, DE Tony McDaniel, TE Will Yeatman, and DE Phillip Merling inactive for Week 3 against the Browns.

Davis is the biggest loss. He'll be replaced by Nolan Carroll in what projects as a big downgrade in terms of talent and cover skills at outside corner. McDaniel is coming off an injury. Merling is shaping up as a draft bust.

Dolphins WR Roberto Wallace was limited by a knee injury last season.

Wallace was mainly a special teamer as a rookie, catching just six balls for 62 yards in 12 games. The former undrafted free agent has an interesting size/speed skill set, but the drafting of Edmond Gates says that the Dolphins don't see Wallace as their deep threat. He'll be on the roster bubble.

Dolphins declared third QB Tyler Thigpen, WR Roberto Wallace, TE Mickey Shuler, OT Matt Kopa, OT Lydon Murtha, DE Clifton Geathers, CB Nate Ness, and S Tyrone Culver inactive for Sunday's Week 10 game against Tennessee.

LT Jake Long, TE Anthony Fasano, and LB Karlos Dansby will all be active after being listed as probable. Brian Hartline will be the primary third receiver with Wallace out. Culver was only a limited participant in practice this week with an ankle injury. Recently signed CB Al Harris will be active for the first time this season.

Undrafted rookie Roberto Wallace played the "Z" receiver for the first drive in Week 8, meaning he was on the field for three wide sets.

He and Brian Hartline will compete for time behind Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess, greatly diminishing both of their fantasy values. Stash Wallace's name in the back of your mind for the future.
