I do not hink so but the second to last scenario that I think could happen with Mike Wallace has finally come about.  I was wandering where Peyton would sign and how it could affect Wallace.  Peyton has chosen to go to Denver according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.  Of the three teams that Peyton was looking to join I thought Denver would be the least likely that Wallace would consider. If Manning went to Tennessee that would have been intriguing to Wallace.  The Titans have a great ground game with Chris Johnson.  Their best receiver is Kenny Britt who spends half his time in trouble.  Wallace could be the go to guy for Manning in Tennessee.  I am glad Manning did not choose Tennessee. Now that the Broncos are negotiating with Manning will they have enough money to bring in Wallace?  The Broncos were around $24 million under the cap as of the end of February.  That was not counting the Restricted Free Agents.  They only have 2 though and they both got  the lowest tender offer. Manning could take up a very large chunk of that if he does not take an incentive laden deal.  The Broncos have also signed a couple of Free Agents already in linebacker Joe Mays and safety Mike Adams.  The rumors are already swirling about Manning’s old teammates joining him in Denver as well.  The market for Wallace could be tight.  He is going to need around $10 million in year one to ensure the Steelers do not get him back.  The Broncos could be close to that number.  It could put them right on the verge of being able to sign Wallace. Does Wallace even want to be in Denver?  He has made known he wants to play for a contender.  The addition of Manning and the good young defense the Broncos have makes them a contender.  The Broncos also play in a weak division in the AFC West.  They will always be able to make a run at the playoffs. Wallace would be across from Demarius Thomas at receiver.  They would be a good compliment to one another.  The Broncos also have a very good running game.  It will keep teams honest and will give Wallace more one on one coverage.  That is like stealing candy from a baby.  If Wallace gets one on one he is going deep and Manning will find him. Wallace is averaging 1068 yards per season with Pittsburgh.  As a starter the past tow seasons he is averaging over 1200 yards and 9 touchdowns.  Those are some very good numbers.  Wallace and Ben Roethlisberger work well together.  They are on the same page.  They missed more often after Roethlisberger was hurt the second half of the season but in the beginning of the year Wallace was on pace for huge milestones. Wallace should have some questions of Manning as well if he is thinking about Denver.  How long can Manning play for?  How healthy is he?  If Wallace stays in Pittsburgh he will have Roethlisberger for the bulk of his career.  He may only have Manning for 3 more seasons.  Then he will have to start over again with a new quarterback a third time.  That may not be something Wallace wants. There are pros and cons for Wallace.  I do not see him leaving for Denver.  I did not see Manning headed to Denver either with the cold but it happened.  With allt he crazy findings in the NFL who knows.
