DAVIE, Fla. - Mike Wallace walked out of the Miami Dolphins locker room and into the off-season Monday carrying two footballs under one arm and a helmet in the other.Theyll serve as souvenirs if hes not back in 2015.Wallace has three years left on a $60 million, five-year contract. But his futures suddenly in doubt after coach Joe Philbin benched his star receiver for the second half of Sundays season-ending loss to the New York Jets.Following the game, Wallace acknowledged having an argument with the coaching staff. He backtracked Monday, saying he wasnt upset about anything, and didnt refuse to play.Teammate Brandon Gibson said Wallace was frustrated after being targeted only once in the first half. The frustration has been building since last year, Gibson said.He may have not had the best team thoughts at one point, Gibson said. He just wants to contribute.In the postgame locker room, Gibson spoke for Wallace, which created a weird scene as they stood side by side.Sometimes people arent able to express themselves the right way, Gibson said Monday. I didnt want him to get in front of the media and say something he was going to regret that made him sound like a selfish guy. Thats not his character.When Wallace was asked Monday if he was shocked, disappointed or angry about being benched, he said yes. But he said he still likes Philbin.It was coachs decision, so I went along with it, Wallace said. He did what he felt was right, and I stand behind him.Philbin shed little light on what happened to trigger Wallaces benching.I had a conversation with him during the game and made a coaching decision, Philbin said.So whats next? The Dolphins, who went 8-8 and missed the playoffs for the sixth consecutive year, would take a big salary-cap hit if they released Wallace. Hes the cornerstone of a receiving group already expected to undergo a shakeup, with Gibson and Brian Hartline uncertain to return.Wallace said he wants to be with the Dolphins in 2015, but its unclear whether the team believes the relationship can — or should — be repaired.When asked about the episode altering Wallaces status with the team, Philbin said: Nothing has changed right now. ... I havent thought about whos playing what position in 2015.Quarterback Ryan Tannehill said he wants Wallace back, and said any rift can be repaired before the start of off-season workouts.Theres a lot of time between now and April, Tannehill said. Theres a lot of time to heal and get back on the same page. ... I want to be on a great page with Mike. Hes a heck of a player. He made some great plays for us.The speedy Wallace tied a career high with 10 touchdown receptions, but averaged only 12.9 yards per catch, well below his career average of 15.6. He and Tannehill have struggled for two years to click on long passes.He scored a lot of touchdowns, and well look to increase that, Tannehill said. We want to hit more deep balls to him. Thats his forte. Were going to take a long hard look at reasons we didnt, and correct those over this off-season.Wallace was asked if he was underused this year.Im not sure, he said.And do Sundays events affect his chances of remaining with the Dolphins?Im not sure.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Steve_Wine Cheap Basketball Jerseys .

"I feel like I can do almost anything football related," said Manning, who took most of the snaps during the workout. "Im not going to take any time off. This is the second day, and I want to see how its responding. There is no swelling, no discomfort, no issues. Im able to go about my business." Manning had ankle surgery in early April after enduring the worst season of his 10-year NFL career. He threw 27 interceptions with just 18 TDs and was sacked a career-high 39 times. The Giants finished 7-9. The ankle bothered Manning for most of the season and knocked him out of the final game against the Washington Redskins, the first time Manning went to the sideline because of an injury in his career. "My goal was always to be back for the OTAs," Manning said. "The doctors said that I needed seven weeks after surgery. They didnt tell me that I wouldnt be ready, but I had it in my mind that I should be ready. After three weeks, I knew I was feeling pretty good." The Giants are installing a new version of the West Coast offence under the guidance of new offensive co-ordinator Ben McAdoo. "It has been a learning experience for me and for everyone, learning the new offence," Manning said. "I like it. Everything about it makes sense. Weve made some good plays over the last two days. Its still the early stages, but I like where were headed." Giants coach Tom Coughlin isnt surprised by Mannings progress. "When he first started, we tried to slow him down," Coughlin said. "But he wants to go. We thought the progress would be slow, but hes so far ahead. There may be a day where hes a little sore, but he hasnt shown it yet. " Manning believes that he made the right decision having the surgery. "It feels a lot better than it did," Manning said. "Its why we went ahead and hhad the surgery.dddddddddddd Theres no discomfort. Im running and doing drills. I dont want to have to worry about the ankle. I thought I might miss some time, but I didnt want to. "After a while, I was able to do certain things without pain. After three weeks, I was able to do about 15 to 20 drops and I felt good. I thought I could be here. I wanted to be smart and not rush it if I wasnt ready. The goal now is not to have any setbacks. Ill continue to monitor it, rehab it. I still have some work to do." Hes not the only Giant player making a comeback from surgery. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul spent the off-season rehabbing a shoulder injury after back surgery last June. Having lost 20 pounds down to 275, Pierre-Paul feels fit and ready to return to his All-Pro status. "I feel great," said Pierre-Paul, who had only two sacks in 11 games last season. "Nothing is bothering me. Its all behind me. I know I wasnt at 100 per cent last year. Its a new season, a team with a lot of new faces. Im ready to go out there and show everyone what I can do." Running back David Wilson had neck surgery after the first-round pick out of West Virginia played five games in 2013, collecting only 146 yards. Doctors said at the time that his surgery was possibly career-threatening. "The doctors are worried about me bumping into someone or falling down," said Wilson, who is still prohibited from enduring any contact until his next MRI on Wednesday. "I feel great, but its out of my hands. I just have to rest." Wilson participated in some light drills Thursday. "Hes out there running and hes looking good," Coughlin said of Wilson. Safety Stevie Brown, who had left knee surgery last fall after tearing it in preseason, wore no brace. "One of the first things I did when I first started rehab was not having to rely on any brace," said Brown, who was second in the NFL in interceptions with eight in 2012, before missing all of last season. "I did things slowly without a brace." ' ' '
