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.

Wallace Expendable To Steelers?

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.

Randy Moss is going to court, but not because he’s doing drugs or beating a police officer

Randy Moss made an unexpected push to get back on the field last week. It was shady. The guy was out of football for a year, “retiring” before last season. It didn’t take long. He spent exactly one year away from the sport, and much like those guys who live in the corn in Field of Dreams, he just reappeared. After a couple workouts, he signed a one year deal with the 49ers...

Randy Moss to 49ers: Fantasy Impact

Future Hall of Famer Randy Moss has agreed to a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. This was a surprising move by the 49ers but coach Harbuagh should have the personality to reign in the historically mercurial Moss. This is an excellent signing for the 49ers offense which now has two elite deep threats in Vernon Davis and Randy Moss. We are not sure Alex Smith will be able...
