The veteran wideout provided the Ravens with big-play ability and stretched the field over the last two years in Baltimore. Wallace hauled in 124 passes for 1,765 yards and eight touchdown receptions while playing 31 of 32 games, averaging 14 yards a catch.
The Eagles now get another veteran wideout to the nest that can get verticle with Torrey Smith’s departure. While Wallace could slide into the number two role “place holder”, the Birds could also look to the draft as well. Philadelphia also has second-year players Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson as their vertical threats in training, but could look for more competition for the position.
Wallace is another solid addition by GM Howie Roseman and should be an upgrade over Torrey Smith’s production in 2017 for the Birds.
