NFL free agency news: Eagles, WR Mike Wallace agree to 1-year deal

The Eagles have every intention of returning to the Super Bowl next season, as made clear by a bevy of offseason moves that includes the signing of veteran wide receiver Mike Wallace on Thursday.

Wallace, 31, caught 124 passes for 1,765 yards and eight touchdowns in two seasons in Baltimore. Prior to his stint with the Ravens, Wallace made a name for himself as a deep threat with top-end speed in Pittsburgh, Miami and Minnesota. He has three seasons of 1,000 receiving yards or more, and 19 of his 57 career touchdowns have been 40 yards or longer.

Philadelphia traded Torrey Smith to the Panthers earlier this month, so Wallace will likely move into a familiar role responsible for stretching the defense.
