In Sunday's 13-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills, Wallace proved he can still perform in the right role. The 30-year-old caught three of six targets for 91 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown.
"A lot of people wrote me off," he said, via ESPN. "They think I don't have it, but I've got something for them. I told you all that from Day 1. They better get ready, because I'm coming."
Miscast in Miami and Minnesota, Wallace landed in the ideal spot in Baltimore. His 66-yard TD is his longest reception since an 82-yard TD in Week 6, 2012 when he was a member of the Steelers. It's not a surprise Wallace got back in the deep-ball action now that he finally hooked back up with a quarterback known for his bombing precision.
Wallace might have lost a step over the years, but he still can burn.
"If you have a safety on me," he said, "he's dead every time."
Wallace's touchdown keyed the victory, but a spectacular grab by Breshad Perriman -- who missed his entire rookie season -- helped spur the action.
"I feed off the other guys," Wallace said. "Breshad had just went over the top of the other guy for the first down and a big play. I was like, 'All right, it's time for me to get one.' We have bets over who's going to get a 40-yard touchdown first, so he kind of owes me right now."
