Mike Wallace played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins before being traded to the Minnesota Vikings in his short NFL career to date.
That gives the wide receiver the distinction of having played with brothers Maurkice and Mike Pouncey, centers for the Steelers and Dolphins respectively. Unfortunately for Wallace however, neither of the brothers rate the Vikings new recruit that highly whatsoever.
The Pounceys appeared in an interview with CBS Miami that will air later today, and proceeded to call Wallace a 'coward'.
"First of all, in my opinion, he's a coward," the All-Pro Maurkice Pouncey told CBS Miami. "I never want a guy on my team like that, man. To walk out on your band of brothers."
Pouncey is referencing a Dolphins game last season against the New York Jets where Wallace seemed to get into an argument with coaching staff and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and then refused to come out for the second half of the game.
Mike Pouncey, who played with Wallace the more recent of the two, was far more diplomatic when talking about the talented but disruptive wideout.
"Obviously our organization felt that way about some guys, and they got those guys out of our football team," he said. "I think it was the right move for everybody."
Wallace responded to the comments on Twitter, playing them down by saying that he is still friends with the two Pouncey's and that he has never walked away - or refused to get off the bench - from teammates.
