Wallace hopes Brown's home cooking isn't poison


Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace will be back at Heinz Field for the first time since his move south this past offseason, and he's looking forward to some facetime with his former teammates and coaches.

His ultimate plan, though? Make it to Sunday's coin flip without a trip to the hospital.

"I have to have a good game on Sunday, I don’t want any poison," Wallace joked to Pittsburgh reporters this week, via the Phinsiders, when asked about his dinner plans with Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown.

Wallace said he has plans to meet Brown at what sounded like a privately prepared meal at Brown's house before Sunday's matchup, where the former Steeler is fully prepared to provide for both himself and his opponent.

"Wherever they want to go, I got to bring my own food though," he said. ". . . I’m coming to my guy’s house. AB (Antonio Brown) may not let me pay for it though. He’s going to feel like I’m a guest, he’s going to feel like that’s his house.

"He’s probably going to want to pay for it, but I’m up for it."

The 27-year-old Wallace is currently second in receiving yards with his new team behind Brian Hartline, having pulled in 56 catches for nearly 750 yards to this point. But Wallace said that based on Brown's 1,100 yards and six touchdowns this season, he's willing to eat whatever's fueling his friend's production.

"I’m pretty sure AB has a good healthy cook for us man, he’s always eating healthy so I’m pretty sure he’ll have a nice meal for us," Wallace said. "I don’t know how good it’ll taste, he’s a little weird when it comes down to his food but he’s having a great season so I’ll take whatever, some of what he’s got."
