Dolphins' Wallace faces former team Sunday

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace says he wants to avoid getting caught up in too much hype about this week's game against his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Wallace spent his first four NFL seasons with the Steelers and helped them reach a Super Bowl, then became a free agent and signed a $60 million, five-year deal with the Dolphins. Pittsburgh is 5-7 without him, Miami is 6-6 with him, and both teams are scrambling for the AFC's final wild-card berth.

The Steelers deemed Wallace too expensive to keep. He held out during their 2012 training camp in an unsuccessful bid for a long-term extension. He has said only nice things about his former team since joining the Dolphins, but expects a cool reception when he returns to Heinz Field.
