With the recent rumblings that a bunch of teams are interested in trading for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette doesn’t see it happening.
I agree with Bouchette, the Steelers won’t go out of their way to trade Wallace. Even though he doesn’t plan on signing his restricted free agent tender, he’ll be playing in Pittsburgh in 2012, unless a team is willing to sign him as a restricted free agent and give the Steelers a first round pick in return. And that likely won’t happen either.

According to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, there are a handful of teams that are interested in trading for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace.
It was just reported yesterday that Wallace won’t be showing up to next week’s OTA’s. So to me, this sounds like his representatives trying to push the Steelers along in getting a long-term extension done...
It seems that the Steelers Mike Wallace is doing everything in his power to force the media and the blogging nation to continue writing about him this offseason. While I would imagine that isn’t his primary intent, it’s an indirect result of the media circus surrounding him and his contract status going forward. Don’t get me wrong, we here at Steeler Addicts will always report...
Wide receiver Mike Wallace reportedly refuses to sign his one-year tender of $2.7M with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Wallace wont be able to participate in OTAs if he doesnt sign the tender, and could ultimately end up being a holdout in Training Camp, as he covets a lucrative long-term deal. It is still too early to consider red flagging...
The market for restricted free agents is pretty soft, but Steelers WR Mike Wallace is the clear gem. With the deadline for RFAs to get offer sheets from other teams, the interest has been slim across the league. Plus, was a parting shot at Tim Tebow in Denver deserved?
Don’t bet on disgruntled Steelers WR Mike Wallace changing addresses via restricted free agency. It’s a reminder of how agents have very little regard for the restricted free agent market.
