Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger believes that Mike Wallace is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL.

Ben Roethlisberger has said that Mike Wallace is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL.

The 26-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Miami Dolphins last month, ending a four-season stay with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers quarterback told TheFinsiders.com: "Mike is way more. It's to Mike's credit. Mike is really focused on becoming a better receiver. So he's focused on his route running.

"He's focused on running out-routes, and curl-routes, and in-routes and doing all the little things that's required to become a great wide receiver.

"That's why he, to me, is one of the best in the league, because he not only has that speed, he can run by anybody, but he can [run] routes and he can get open."

Wallace's contract makes him the third-highest paid wideout in the NFL.
