Once upon a time, everyone had Mike Wallace pegged for Indianapolis.

As Ben Savage of Colts Authority points out, the fit is no longer there.

Savage takes the time to break down Wallace's game on tape and does a good job illustrating that he likely won't fit as snugly in Pep Hamilton's offense as he would have in Bruce Arians.

The change not only in offensive coordinator but possibly in direction and tone to the offense makes one of the popular preseason matches an awkward fit now that free agency is nearly on us.

There are a lot of ways Wallace still makes sense if it weren't for the big money he'll likely demand. He'll be 27 next year, which means whoever signs him is getting a player who has averaged over 1,000 yards a season for his career in his prime.

It's not easy to find a 1,000-yard, eight-touchdown guy, and that means someone is going to overpay to get him.

Given increased focus on the defense and offensive line, however, that someone isn't likely to be Ryan Grigson.
