Sometimes it is the signings you do not make that help build a team

The Minnesota Vikings' one-year run with wide receiver Mike Wallace is over.

The Vikings released Wallace on Tuesday, parting ways with the receiver a year after they sent a fifth-round pick to the Miami Dolphins for him. The team had hoped Wallace would become a deep threat in Norv Turner's offense, but the 29-year-old caught just 39 passes for 473 yards and two touchdowns, as the team's downfield passing game never materialized.

By releasing Wallace, the Vikings will recoup $11.5 million in cap space for 2016....

Wallace, who averaged 17.2 yards per catch during his first four seasons with the Steelers, hasn't eclipsed 13 yards a catch since.

Imagine if the Steelers would have worked it out with Wallace, which would have led to AB leaving after his first contract

That really was a blessing looking back on it. So thanks Mike for being selfish and thank you FO for seeing what you saw in AB.

can't believe it took me most of that first year of AB as the #1 WR to see that he had what it takes to be the man.

That is one of only two times in my life I've been wrong, but according to the courts I'm not allowed to discuss the other time.
