Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace won’t play in Sunday’s season finale against the Browns because of a hip/hamstring injury.
There’s a good chance that Wallace has played his snap for the Steelers now that he’s scheduled to become a free agent once the new league year begins in March.
I can’t imagine Wallace returning to Pittsburgh next season. Even though...
Nate Ulrich at The Akron Beacon Journal this morning is throwing former Colts interim coach and current offensive coordinator Bruce Arians’s hat into the ring for the Cleveland Browns head coaching job.
“Banner has harped on how important it is for a head coach to possess desirable leadership qualities. Arians, 60, obviously isn’t lacking in that category, and now he has proof...

Offensive tackle Mike Adams and cornerback Curtis Brown also were shut down a day before Sunday’s season finale at home against the Cleveland Browns. Wallace sat out practice this week with a hip injury after...
