More than a year later, Wallace is still waiting for that opportunity.
Despite having five touchdown catches already, the former Steeler hasn't cracked 100 yards yet this season and has had fewer than 60 yards in three of his last four games, which prompted him to say this on Tuesday, on the heels of another dismal offensive performance against Jacksonville:
"We didn't do nothing," Wallace told reporters. "Our offense was (expletive). We've got to do better."
"That's what I do; I'm built for that," Wallace said, continuing to show some visible signs of frustration.
Though he must have expected some growing pains after leaving Pittsburgh to play with an unestablished quarterback, it certainly seems like frustration is mounting for Wallace. Who will end up paying the biggest price? Wallace or Tannehill?
