    Thanks for the clarification of Hosack, Singer. Sad to hear about Craig Heyward.

    HUNTINGTON -- It didn't take long for Butchie Wallace's World Bowl performance to pay dividends.

    The former Marshall University running back signed a two-year, $650,000 free agent contract with the Atlanta Falcons on Friday, according to Wallace's agent, Harold Lewis. Wallace earned World Bowl MVP honors on Sunday after rushing for 143 yards and a touchdown in Frankfurt's NFL Europe title game victory.

    Wallace spent two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings before being released. He joined Frankfurt during the regular season and became an offensive focal point down the stretch.

    "He's kind of a combo back and I guess that worked really well in NFL Europe," Lewis said. "He dominated."

    NFL teams took notice and Lewis received numerous inquiries early this week. The Miami Dolphins called as late as Friday, but Wallace had signed with the Falcons, where he'll join former Thundering Herd teammate Chris Crocker.

    "We got solicited pretty hard after that," Lewis said. "But with the Atlanta Falcons, there are going to be some changes in the backfield. And when you look at the offense they run, it fits perfectly. He's not like (undersized back) Warrick Dunn or (power back T.J.) Duckett, but he's right in between."
