Is Mike Wallace worth a $60 million contract from the Dolphins?

Multiple sources tell the Sun-Sentinel Steelers receiver Mike Wallace, who won’t be given the franchise tag by the Steelers this offseason, is the team’s top target.

And much like Miami’s pursuit of Jim Harbaugh, Jeff Fisher and Peyton Manning, everyone inside the NFL knows Dolphins owner Steve Ross is a big spender, and expects him to set the bidding market high.

Considering Wallace turned down an offer from Pittsburgh that trumped the five-year, $55.5 million deal Vincent Jackson got from Tampa Bay as an unrestricted free agent last offseason, expect a contract being placed on a table that pays Wallace in the range of $60 million or $12 million a season during unauthorized contract negotiations at this week’s NFL combine.

If the sticker price for this two-time Pro Bowler scares you, please calm down and consider the Dolphins paid Jake Long that type of money ($57.5 million over five seasons), and he didn’t even score touchdowns.
