Mike Wallace Disses Teddy Bridgewater, Praises Joe Flacco

Mike Wallace seems to be really happy right now, as he recently signed a deal to join the Baltimore Ravens. The deal is reportedly worth over $11 million for two years.

During introductory press conference, Wallace appeared to take a shot at his former quarterback, Minnesota Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater, while praising Ravens QB Joe Flacco.

"When this process started, I knew I wasn't going back to Minnesota. I was like, 'I need a good quarterback,'" Wallace said, via ESPN. "I need a quarterback who is proven and can get things done. Flacco has always been that guy."

Wallace originally started his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, so he played against the Ravens twice a season. Now, it's different for the 29-year-old being on the other side of the rivalry.

"I told coach, 'It feels weird being on the other side, but I'm all for it,'" Wallace said. "I just have to switch my whole mentality. I used to hate purple. Now, I love purple."

After stellar seasons with Pittsburgh statistically, Wallace's have dropped since 2013 with teams like the Vikings and Miami Dolphins.

With Flacco and Ravens, Wallace hopes to see a resurgence.

"We just have a couple of months to wait and see. I'll show everybody," Wallace said. "I've been taking a lot of heat for about three years in a row. I promise I'll get the last laugh."
