The Miami Dolphins have added wide receiver Mike Wallace today, signing the former Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowler in free agency. The move gives the Dolphins a number one wide receiver alongside Brian Hartline and Davone Bess. Here's a look at the team's potential offensive depth chart following the Wallace signing:

Offense (27 Players)

First

Second

Third

Fourth

Wide Receiver

Brian Hartline

Rishard Matthews

Jeff Fuller

Left Tackle

Jonathan Martin

Jeff Adams

Andrew McDonald

Left Guard

Richie Incognito

Chandler Burden

Center

Mike Pouncey

Josh Samuda

Right Guard

John Jerry

Right Tackle

Will Yeatman

Tight End

Charles Clay

Michael Egnew

Kyle Miller

Wide Receiver

Mike Wallace

Davone Bess

Armon Binns

Brian Tyms

Quarterback

Ryan Tannehill

Matt Moore

Pat Devlin

Halfback

Lamar Miller

Daniel Thomas

Marcus Thigpen

Jonas Gray

Fullback

Jorvorskie Lane

Obviously, Wallace will take the number one wide receiver position, with Brian Hartline sliding to second and Bess to the third slot. Most likely, the Dolphins will do what they did last year and list Bess as a third starting receiver with Wallace and Hartline. Behind those three, the depth chart is a mass of players, all of whom could claim a role on the final roster in September, could find themselves on the practice squad, or possibly find themselves looking for a job.

As the roster stands, Rishard Matthews and Armon Binns will likely be the fourth and fifth wide outs, with Jeff Fuller and Brian Tyms looking to secure the final roster position. I give the nod, slightly, to Fuller because of his connection to Tannehill and offensive coordinator Mike Sherman when all three were at Texas A&M.

Miami will likely add additional receivers in the draft next month.
