What's next for Mike Wallace and the Miami Dolphins?

The veteran wide receiver ended last season on an ugly note after he pulled himself from the lineup during a Week 17 loss to the Jets. Wallace's clashes with the coaching staff and exorbitant price tag has fueled speculation that player and team are headed for a divorce.

In what could be a sign of the two sides trying to move forward together, The Miami Herald reported Saturday that Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey recently had a meal with Wallace, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.

The Dolphins believed they were getting an elite playmaking receiver to pair with Ryan Tannehill when they signed Wallace to a five-year, $60 million contract in 2013. Wallace tied a career high with 10 touchdowns this season, but has failed to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards in his first two seasons in Miami.

Wallace -- due $9.85 million this season -- hasn't performed up to expectations, but he was easily Tannehill's best receiver last season. Unless Miami has a trick up its sleeve in free agency, Wallace makes sense to return in 2015 -- assuming everyone can play nice.
