The Steelers appear, for the time being at least, pretty comfortable with the situation as it is with him.  He'll sign his first round tender at some point and with any luck they'll be able to get a long term deal done with him before training camp is over.

Why the Jaguars won't sign Mike Wallace

As many of you probably know, Mike Wallace is a restricted free agent. The Steelers and their fans love this guy, and they won't him to stay in Pittsburgh, but it's still possible for a team to swoop in and sign him.
