Wallace's future with Dolphins in doubt after benching

The Associated Press

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Mike Wallace has three years left on a $60 million, five-year contract, but his future with the Miami Dolphins is suddenly in doubt.

Coach Joe Philbin benched Wallace for the second half of Sunday's season-ending loss to the New York Jets.

Following the game, Wallace acknowledged having an argument with the coaching staff. He backtracked Monday, saying he wasn't upset about anything, and said he didn't refuse to play.

Teammate Brandon Gibson said Wallace was frustrated after being targeted only once in the first half. The frustration has been building since last year, Gibson said.

When Wallace was asked if he was shocked, disappointed or angry about being benched, he said yes. But he said he still likes Philbin.
