According to Peter King of SI.com, if the San Francisco 49ers end up losing quarterback Alex Smith in free agency, they would end up saving about $8 million dollars in cap room. In that case they might decide to go after Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace.
The 49ers would likely have to pay Wallace around $8 million a season and give up the 30th pick in this year’s draft, but it might be worth it, especially if they land Peyton Manning.

As Steelers fans know WR Mike Wallace is a restricted free agent. “Wallace Watch 2012″ may be the second biggest story of the NFL Off-season behind “Manning Watch.” However, it seems as though many fans do not understand how restricted free agency works. With tenders and draf Continue
Quarterback Peyton Manning has now handed out his free agent bachelor rose to the Denver Broncos, and with the flurry off big named free agency signings now behind us, the full force speculation will now turn back to Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace, and if the Broncos will pursue him with a large front loaded offer sheet and their first round...
As many of you probably know, Mike Wallace is a restricted free agent. The Steelers and their fans love this guy, and they won't him to stay in Pittsburgh, but it's still possible for a team to swoop in and sign him. The downside for that team is that it would cost them a first round pick.
As Alfie Crow correctly pointed out at BCC, the compensatory pick that is given...
The Steelers have tendered restricted free agent Mike Wallace a sizeable chunk of money with a 2.7 million dollar offer that i hope leads to Mike getting a deal done. The Steelers really need Mike, because he’s got the one thing you can’t coach, speed. You are right when you say that Mike needs to [...]
The Pittsburgh Steelers and WR Mike Wallace have had a nice partnership for the past three seasons. The Steelers took Wallace in the third round (84thoverall pick) of the 2009 NFL Draft, a pick that has proven to be a wise one.
In his rookie season, Wallace led the league with a 19.4 yards-per-catch average. He totaled 756 yards and 6 TDs on 39 receptions. The Mississippi...
Alfie Crow at BCC pointed out today that a team cannot trade down in the first round and use that new, lower pick to compensate the Steelers for Mike Wallace. Compensation must be with the signing team's highest original first round pick.
The Denver Broncos convinced Peyton Manning to choose signing with them over the Tennessee Titans, San Francisco 49ers and countless other teams who pursued the future Hall of Fame quarterback. John Elway has demonstrated that he is all in for the team to get back to the Super Bowl, as they made a tremendous upgrade at the most important position on the field.
Terrence Howard once sang “It’s hard out here for a pimp “ , well it’s much harder to be a Dolphins fan with Jeff Ireland calling the shots.
Whether it’s your friends on face book, Yahoo writers, Peter King, Mike Freeman it seems everyone is taking their best shot at Jeff Ireland and the Dolphins organization.
SI’s Peter King said “In the history of NFL general managers...
Before we get on to the topic at hand we should note that with the 49ers signing of free agent Mario Manningham, there isn’t much left for the Steelers Mike Wallace. The hoopla at the start of free agency, with all the suitors that he would have banging down his door at 4pm on March 13th; is all just an afterthought now. The Steelers appear, for the time being at least, pretty...

With NFL free agency continuing on, the fallout from quarterback Peyton Manning’s pending decision could reportedly land veteran play-caller Matt Hasselbeck in Cleveland as a member of the Orange and Brown.
Per Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, if Manning opts to return to Tennessee, this time as a professional, an uprooted Hasselbeck could be the next Jake Delhomme.
So in one of the more strange, weird, wacky QB free agency shuffling going on right about now, the Seattle Seahawks may have struck first as the NFL waits for Peyton Manning to make up his mind already. Peter King, among many, is now reporting that Matt Flynn has agreed to a 3-year, $26 million dollar deal with the Seahawks, but only $10 million of it is guaranteed. And per...
As much as it pains Peter King and myself that the latest Peyton Manning developments have diverted attention from the oh-so harrowing Jim McMahon “Outside the Lines” interview, it’s impossible to disregard a worldwide pant-sh*tting of the highest order. And such it has been with the Peyton news fallout.
Vegas has already installed the Broncos at 10:1 odds to win the Super...
