Solid relationship forming between Minnesota's Mike Zimmer, Mike Wallace

BY foxsports • June 16, 2015

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Wallace is fond of a potential star of his offense, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling.

"I like Mike Wallace," Zimmer said. "He’s got some fire and he comes up to me all of the time and says, 'You can’t stop me today,' and stuff like that. Hey, I like those guys that are competitors. He works extremely hard. I think he’s developing a good relationship with everybody on the football team and not just Teddy (Bridgewater)."

Wallace must now build upon his solid first impression. Before the wide receiver was traded to the Vikings, he was having trouble replicating his Steelers success with the Dolphins. Wallace hasn't had a 1,000-yard season since 2011, his second-to-last year in Pittsburgh.

Now, with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and running back Adrian Peterson also in the mix, Wallace could be part of one NFL's most dynamic offensive trios in 2015.
