While the Cleveland Browns left roster gaps this off-season, I’m pretty happy they didn’t go chasing Mike Wallace. According to The National Football Post, Mike Wallace refused to talk to reporters following the Dolphins big road win against the Browns in Cleveland yesterday. The report states that Wallace was “visibly angry.” Tom Reed’s game recap had some nice non-quotes from Wallace as well. It’s good to have personal standards and to want to play well for your team, but in a complex game like football, sometimes you’re the distraction so your team can expose other weaknesses. You know, the kinds of weaknesses that result in nine catches and 114 yards and a touchdown for Brian Hartline against a combination of Buster Skrine and Chris Owens. Even if the Steelers had gobs of cap space it’s hard to imagine they would have been chasing after this kind of guy. Such is often the case when the Steelers use up a young player’s early success before allowing him to take his diva receiver attitude elsewhere. Just ask Santonio Holmes. Anyway, maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that this is the feeling that Joe Haden gives opposing wideouts. And I guess I shouldn’t be too hard on Mike Wallace. At least he wasn’t suspended for the game yesterday. [Related: Cleveland Browns missed a big opportunity with first impression]
