Wallace, Kruger reportedly close to deals


NFL free agency is almost a half-hour old, and two AFC North players are already close to changing teams, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace is negotiating a five-year deal with the Miami Dolphins that one source familiar with the talks said is "very, very likely" to get done. This isn't a surprise because the Dolphins have long been considered the frontrunners for Wallace.

Also, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Paul Kruger is on the verge of reaching an agreement with the Cleveland Browns. It's been assumed that the Ravens didn't have the cap room to keep Kruger, who led the Super Bowl champions in sacks this past season.
