Report: Wallace' last year in Pittsburgh
 
Trade deadline approaching. Do you make a move? Get a couple picks and you could speed up the defensive rebuilding.

No.

Use him for #7... and then franchise him.

Eh. We're 0-for-Wallace in Super Bowls. Not like he's the straw that stirs the Lombardi Cocktail. And we're way over the cap next year, so paying him that much might not be a prudent move when we need more help on defense.

Anything less than a SB victory this year and we lose him for nothing is a huge waste.

With him is more of a chance than without him.

I say let him play this year, and "worst case": he walks.

As far as franchising him goes, I've mentioned, a few times, about using the cap space on offense, and the draft for defense. I won't bore you with it (again), but if the Steelers could keep this offense together, for a few years... until BB retires, they could be dynamic!!!

[Note: Two years out of Wallace, for about $13 million is a bargain: this year $2.7 million, plus franchise $10 million, equals total: $13 million.]

I give this 25% he takes a price cut and stays, vs 75% he goes elsewhere for pay far higher than he deserves. Can we even afford to franchise him at this point? We restructured a lot of big contracts, and those are coming due.

Winning number 7 this year would put Big Ben in the hall of fame and put the Steelers in a category unmatched in the Super Bowl Era. 7 Super Bowl wins, 9 appearances. DIZAMN.

A lot of dead money will be up in the air, but cutting a bunch of the old guys will save cap space. You're looking at the last seasons of Harrison, Hampton, and Keisel at least. There's a possibility of more than that, though. Guys like Batch, Leftwich, Mendenhall and Redman probably won't be brought back either. Granted, they aren't exactly soaking the cap but with 7 - 8 guys off the cap, we're suddenly well below it.

We won't franchise Wallace because he'll resign. All of this garbage is ridiculous. He's said he wants to stay here and I believe him. All of these "reports" from guys like Sessler and Rapoport are bogus and are clearly writing for headlines. These are the same guys writing that Haley and Roethlisberger have a feud and are fighting constantly.

My best guess would be a 5 year 52.5 million w/ 28 million in guaranteed money. This guy is a lot more talented than people are giving him credit for.

If he doesn't, he'll be franchise tagged and signed to a long term deal in a couple of years.

LaCanfora needs to check his facts better...

Wallace is not playing under the franchise tag, he's playing under the restricted free agent tender.

That would be a ridiculous contract. I hope Colbert and Rooney are smarter than that.

Pouncey will be coming up in a couple years. And we need help on defense.

With Brown and Sanders, we're fine at 1-2 WRs. The rest can be added on the cheap.

Speaking of which, I'd take Holmes back in a heartbeat. He's a true big game receiver.
