Those of you fantasy footballers out there (there are more than a handful) looking for a possible first receiver pick might've taken a chance and chosen this guy, but his lady is off limits. Mike Wallace's girlfriend Vanessa Cole is a former model turned realtor and the mother of Wallace's three-year old daughter Malihh.
Mike's girlfriend Vanessa attended some of his games at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, but now that he's just signed a fat contract for 60 million bucks, she'll be relocating to Miami and the new house that Wallace bought after signing. She'll likely be looking for a new realtor job in Miami (she previously worked in Houston). I've heard Miami is a pretty intense real estate market despite the ocean levels rising and flooding parts of the city regularly. Vanessa also has taken a liking for the music of Sam Smith, attending one of his shows in May and posting about how excited she was to see him. I wonder what Vanessa thought of her boyfriend's ignorant comments about homosexuals: "All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH." Apparently Mr. Wallace has never heard of genetics?
Vanessa Cole comes from quite the family. Her first cousins is R&B singer Keyshia Cole, who was formerly married to NBA journeyman Boobie Gibson. Her uncle is designer Kenneth Cole. In her own words,
I am very fortunate to be related to these wealthy people… but what can I say… I’m blessed… haha sike… yeah… I’m a tad bit goofy!! but anyways…I have so many goals that I am trying to accomplish, but it is only a matter of time before i reach them!! I love the lord and life itself, also my parents and friends, because without them, then who would I be?
The big news recently about Wallace was that he turned down $76 million from the Vikings to sign his $60 million contract with the Dolphins. Wallace's girlfriend Vanessa may or may not have freaked out about said decision, though I always scratch my head any time someone signs to go and live and play in Minnesota. Minneapolis is a beautiful city in the summer, but the weather up there is next-level arctic unfriendly in the winter. The other news is that Mike has been nursing a hurt hamstring the past few weeks, and he didn't play against the Buccaneers but should be good to go for their next game on Saturday.

Richie Incognito is a jerk.
Richie Incognito is a racist.
Richie Incognito is a bully.
Richie Incognito is a scourge on society and is threatening the American way of life as we know it.
By now we've heard it all about Richie Incognito (ok, maybe that last one is a stretch),... but let's turn to the woman once known as Richie Incognito's girlfriend, Madison Yates, who tells a different story:
“Richie was nothing but kind to me and a great friend,”
Madison Yates uttered the somewhat surprising descriptor that to Gossip Extra before finishing with: “I have not further comment.” Yates and Incognito recently split after being together for a few years. According to Gossip Extra, the two originally began dating when Incognito was playing with the Rams, and continued into his days in Miami. The couple has recently split, and while they originally reported it was due to Richie's abrasive and disagreeable personality, Yates made it clear via email to them that this was not the case. Though the two are no longer together, rumor has it that Yates continues working in Fort Lauderdale as a nightclub waitress.
It will be interesting to see how many other girlfriends come out of the works in future days to side with or against Yates. We'll keep an eye out on this one as it develops.

Hell of a week for Miami football, huh?
Very few people know that quite as well as Miami Dolphins' GM Jeff Ireland. Shrapnel exists amid the Dolphins bullying controversy, and there are sure to be guys losing their jobs as the stories continue to trickle out. With rumors swirling that Jeff Ireland suggested that Jonathan Martin punch Richie Incognito in the face as a method of solving their issues, Ireland may very well wind up unemployed by the time this is all said and done. Fortunately, Jeff Ireland's wife Rachel Ireland will be waiting patiently to help support her husband when Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is done clearing house.
No matter what the final outcome is from the Incognito/Martin saga, Jeff and Rachel Ireland have made positive contributions throughout the Miami community. The Ireland's have been publicly acknowledged for their positive contributions to the autism community South Florida. Jeff and Rachel Ireland were married in 1995 and have four children together; their 18-year-old twin daughters, Haley and Hannah, were diagnosed with autism at the age of 2. In working with the Dan Marino foundation, the Ireland's have helped to raise nearly $2 Million towards the cause since 2011.
