The Pittsburgh Steelers and WR Mike Wallace have had a nice partnership for the past three seasons. The Steelers took Wallace in the third round (84thoverall pick) of the 2009 NFL Draft, a pick that has proven to be a wise one.
In his rookie season, Wallace led the league with a 19.4 yards-per-catch average. He totaled 756 yards and 6 TDs on 39 receptions. The Mississippi product improved on all of those numbers in 2010, becoming one of the top receivers in the AFC with 60 catches, 1,257 yards, 10 TDs and a 21.0 Y/R average.
Wallace got off to a great start in 2011, before his production dipped in the second half as Antonio Brown became Ben Roethlisberger’s go-to guy. Still, Wallace accumulated 1,193 yards and 8 TDs.
So why aren’t Steelers' fans in general expressing more panic over the possibility that Wallace might not be wearing black-and-gold next fall?
The answer is simple: because the Steelers have shown over the years that good (or even great) WR are repla...

As Steelers fans know WR Mike Wallace is a restricted free agent. “Wallace Watch 2012″ may be the second biggest story of the NFL Off-season behind “Manning Watch.” However, it seems as though many fans do not understand how restricted free agency works. With tenders and draf Continue

We are moving closer to the NFL Draft, and closer to the conclusion to the Mike Wallace speculation. Once Wallace signs his tender or new contract with the Steelers, or once he signs with another team, the direction of the Steelers in the draft will become clearer. For now, considering all of the releases, other roster moves, and external factors such as player visits...
Quarterback Peyton Manning has now handed out his free agent bachelor rose to the Denver Broncos, and with the flurry off big named free agency signings now behind us, the full force speculation will now turn back to Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace, and if the Broncos will pursue him with a large front loaded offer sheet and their first round...
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. The downside for that team is that it would cost them a first round pick.
As Alfie Crow correctly pointed out at BCC, the compensatory pick that is given...

After the San Francisco 49ers took a flier on Randy Moss early on in free agency, and now the New England Patriots now signing Brandon Lloyd, the Pittsburgh Steelers are all but certain to retain Mike Wallace for the coming season at his lowest RFA salary.
Now the focus for the Steelers shifts from the immediate future, to locking Wallace up for the long-term.
The Mike Wallace market looked to get a little slimmer yesterday. The New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers both signed free agent Wide Receivers. That should fill both of their rosters at Wide Receiver. Adding Wallace to either team could cause a log jam at the position.
The Patriots signed Brandon Lloyd yesterday. Lloyd wanted to remain with Josh McDaniels who is...
According to Peter King of SI.com, if the San Francisco 49ers end up losing quarterback Alex Smith in free agency, they would end up saving about $8 million dollars in cap room. In that case they might decide to go after Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace.
The 49ers would likely have to pay Wallace around $8 million a season and give up the 30th...
The Steelers have tendered restricted free agent Mike Wallace a sizeable chunk of money with a 2.7 million dollar offer that i hope leads to Mike getting a deal done. The Steelers really need Mike, because he’s got the one thing you can’t coach, speed. You are right when you say that Mike needs to [...]
Before the start of free agency there was plenty of speculation that the Pittsburgh Steelers could end up losing WR Mike Wallace despite the fact that he was a restricted free agent. The Steelers were way over the cap but managed to get that in order before teams could start throwing offers at the receiver. ESPN Bostons Mike Reiss mentions that the Patriots signing of Brandon...
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...
Alfie Crow at BCC pointed out today that a team cannot trade down in the first round and use that new, lower pick to compensate the Steelers for Mike Wallace. Compensation must be with the signing team's highest original first round pick.
Hines Ward went out with a great press conference today. One nugget he left with was that he is urging Mike Wallace to remain with the Steelers. Ward knows from experience and is hoping Wallace stays in the black and gold.
“I told Mike you may get a chance to go other places but there’s not another place like Pittsburgh,”
Wallace is a restricted free agent who has had a...
The Denver Broncos convinced Peyton Manning to choose signing with them over the Tennessee Titans, San Francisco 49ers and countless other teams who pursued the future Hall of Fame quarterback. John Elway has demonstrated that he is all in for the team to get back to the Super Bowl, as they made a tremendous upgrade at the most important position on the field.
The Pittsburgh Steelers took a calculated risk by not franchising wide receiver Mike Wallace and placing a first-round tender on the receiver. Thus far it has worked. But Peter King of SI.com thinks if Peyton Manning rejects the 49ers and they lose Alex Smith, they would sign free-agent quarterback Josh Johnson and if the Niners save $8 million a year by not signing Smith and by...
Before we get on to the topic at hand we should note that with the 49ers signing of free agent Mario Manningham, there isn’t much left for the Steelers Mike Wallace. The hoopla at the start of free agency, with all the suitors that he would have banging down his door at 4pm on March 13th; is all just an afterthought now. The Steelers appear, for the time being at least, pretty...
