To Wallace or not to Wallace? That is the ?
 
Make your prediction and state your preference with any points you'd like to make. Thank you.

I'll say I prefer losing him for a #1 draft choice only if we draft a receiver with that extra first round pick. Antonio Brown is more important to this team and he is the receiver that should stay for the long haul. Paying Wallace 8-9 million a year and seeing him double covered all game may be good for Brown and Sanders but you don't pay a WR to draw coverages their way, you pay him to beat the double coverages. Wallace's lack of production the 2nd half of last season is also alarming and could be a trend.

I however predict we sign him to an outrageous contract extension. Which is still good for the team as Wallace will make his big plays no doubt, but just hope that new TV money comes into play in keeping Brown too.

I vote to keep him. It's an expensive gamble but I want Haley to have a crack at utilizing Wallace as a part of our passing game.

Pay hime unless a top 15 team wants to sign him, lol.. But I dont want a high 20's pick.

So pay the man. Just dont kill the team. hopefully all the reports that are out are true and there won't be much interest in Wallace, or at least as much that we have to overpay to keep him.

My heart says to keep him and TRY to come up with a matching number to atleast flirt with Wallace's services if another team makes a move, but my gut is telling me he is a goner and to be ready for whoever's #1 draft pick at a needy position in this years draft, or use that money to bring in a needy Free Agent that we could afford (Jarred Gaither comes to mind.)

It would really suck losing Wallace and I'm sure Ben is sick and tired and losing his favorite guys, but that's always the risk playing on a contender every year.

Atleast losing Wallace won't be from a lack of effort, we're doing EVERYTHING we can. Maybe that will play a part in Mike choosing us, but I doubt it. He may be a goner, but there's still hope.

I agree with this.
