The Pittsburgh Steelers do not plan on franchising receiver Mike Wallace and will allow him to enter free agency. According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSportsline.com, the Steelers are unwilling to meet Wallace’s demands in the 10 million to-11 million range. Wallace will attract a lot of attention on the open market due to his blazing speed and young age. Wide receiver needy teams will jump to sign Wallace though he had a sub par 2012 campaign, but his upside is still considerable. The Steelers feel comfortable letting him go after the development of fellow receiver Antonio Brown, and the fact they committed long term to Brown, while never getting a deal done with Wallace. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • Good, get rid of this head case. Wallace has always had a poor attitude. He is one dimensional at best. He cannot block and he definitely does not go across the middle. It is one thing to talk about getting a contract like Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald and another playing like you are in that ball league. Which you are not! It is about time the Steelers bring in players that understand the Steelers way. Wallace does not.
  • Do the players, coaches, management and fans want a player who really doesn't want to be there?

    Can you imagine Wallace helping to renegotiate his contract down the road to help the team sign or keep a key player? Me neither.

    If any team in the league epitomizes TEAM, it's the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Wallace is on the wrong team.

  • The Steelers should offer Mike Wallace a francise. A COLD francise, since that's about the only thing he caught this past season.
