After hearing of Mike Wallace being tendered at a first round level there was speculation that the Steelers could lose him. We have not heard much about any moves for Mike Wallace though this offseason. We may have just gotten the reason why. Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee is reporting that the 49ers had interest in Wallace until they found out the price.
Wallace was apparently looking for a Larry Fitzgerald type of deal. If that is the case he is looking for something in the range of 8 years and $120 million. That is insane.

If this is true it is both good and bad for the Steelers. Good that no one in their right mind would sign Wallace for that kind of money. Bad that we will also never pay him that kind of money. He will be gone after next season unless we franchise him. We will not be put...

A player’s value in the NFL is a very subjective matter. What one team would pay a player, another may not. Of course, players think they have an idea of their real value, but they truthfully don’t. All they can do is compare themselves to other players of their caliber to try to get an idea of their value.This approach works for some, but it fails for those players that mistakenly...
