- According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Mike Wallace has turned down a five-year, $50 million deal from the Steelers.
I?m sure Dwayne Bowe wishes he had this problem. The Steelers historically have not negotiated with holdouts and this was more than the Steelers just extended Antonio Brown for. There was no word as to how much was guaranteed (remember this is football and not baseball) so this move was very well a PR move. The fan base now knows that the front office has tried to work with Wallace and this development paints him as being selfish. If I had to guess, something will get worked out sooner rather than later for the speedy Wallace.
- Tony Moeaki made it through his first practice without any restrictions.
I?d feel much better about Moeaki had the Chiefs not signed insurance policy Kevin Boss in the offseason. When on the field, Moeaki showed tremendous upside with the ability to make acrobatic-like catches. Unfortunately, the ?when on the field? part has...

The first week of training camp for the Pittsburgh Steelers is now in the books with week two set to begin on Tuesday. It is now time to recap some things that took place in week one both on and off the field. Feel free to add your own observations from the first week in the comments.
Where's Wallace? - One week down and Mike Wallace has not budged. I figured he might miss the...
After extending Antonio Brown earlier today, news came out that the Steelers would not be giving Mike Wallace an extension and that he would either have to play out the season on his restricted tender, roughly 2.7 million, or be traded. Some speculated that Wallace, if he signs his tender, would be franchised next offseason. However, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed...
Just a couple of months ago there was a report that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace was looking for Larry Fitzgerald money. Now that doesn’t seem to be the case.
According to Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Wallace is looking to make about as much money as Vincent Jackson received from the Buccaneers. The Steelers have made it clear...
Yesterday, it was reported that the Steelers had signed Antonio Brown to a five year, $42.5 million extension. The extension is a mixed bag of tricks for Steelers fans. It means they'll retain Brown's services beyond this season, but it also leaves little room for negotiations with Mike Wallace.
Mike Wallace is set to make $2.7 million via his restricted free agent tender...
As humidity at the initial training camp practices reaches near-suffocating levels, things in Latrobe just became much stickier.
Wide receiver Mike Wallace has refused to sign his one-year tender as an unrestricted free agent. As training camp neared negotiations for a long-term deal began progressing, but when Wallace failed to report for training camp, the Steelers promptly...
There has been many a worry this week about the wide receiver who was going to sign an extension with the Steelers. Many were worried if Mike Wallace would sign his deal and report to camp on time. That did not happen and the Steelers stopped negotiations with Wallace until he returned. While Wallace was missing camp the other big receiver for the Steelers signed his extension...
After Antonio Brown signed an extension yesterday and the Steelers said they would no longer be discussing an extension with Mike Wallace, speculation picked up quickly that Wallace would be traded. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, GM Kevin Colbert is denying that Wallace is available for trade. That may be true, but it may also be the Steelers trying to drum up a false report so...
The Steelers were on their way to another Super Bowl less than two years ago behind a strong passing game led by Ben Roethlisbeger and a group of young receivers led by Mike Wallace. Behind Hines Ward was the “Young Money” crew headed up by Mike Wallace and also including rookies Antonio ContinueThe post Emmanuel Sanders Could be the Antonio Brown of 2012 appeared first on SteelBlitz.
The Steelers made a surprise move today by extending a wide receiver, but not the wide receiver many would have expected. With Mike Wallace still holding out and ownership refusing to negotiate with him until he reports, the Steelers turned their attention to Antonio Brown, who was set to be a restricted free agent, much like Wallace is now, next offseason. Brown was given 42.5 million...
Mike Wallace apparently didn't want it, so the Steelers turned around and gave the big contract extension to Antonio Brown.
Dwayne Bowe and Marshawn Lynch are among two players fantasy owners should be weary of drafting.
We got all this talk surrounding fantasy football sleepers, rankings and good old fashion fantasy football advice, but we’ve seemingly forgotten about those players and/or situations you should avoid in 2012. Knowing who to stay away from in fantasy is just as important...
