Wallace acknowledged that he's lost "maybe just a step, a half a step" of speed after running "about 10,000 post routes and go routes" since joining the NFL in 2009. He's certainly gained his share of doubters, though, after crumbling to earth with the Vikings last season, posting career lows in catches, receiving yards, yards per catch and touchdowns.
"There's a reason why he was one of the best wide receivers in the league a few years ago," said Ravens safety Eric Weddle. "Because he's talented, he can run fast, he's committed, he's eager. He's eager to prove himself, he's motivated. You get a guy like that, it makes for a great season for him and for this team."
With coach John Harbaugh noting that "you can do anything" with Wallace on the field, it's apparent Baltimore -- in need of stability at the receiver position -- will use its new pass-catcher in ways that could mirror his old role with the Steelers. If he clicks with Flacco, Wallace is well positioned for a comeback campaign in 2016.
