Mike Wallace turned down $10 million a yr deal from Steelers
 
Report: Mike Wallace turned down $10 million a yr deal from the Steelers

by Pro Football Zone:

According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, it looks like the Steelers and wide receiver Mike Wallace will part ways with one another this offseason after he turned down a five-year $10 million contract offer last year. They gave him their best offer last year, reportedly averaging $10 million annually over five years, and he turned it down.

They stopped negotiating with Wallace once camp started and he did not show up, and quickly turned their attention to (Antonio) Brown. He signed a five-year contract for $42.5 million that included an $8.5 million signing bonus.

Itís pretty shocking that Wallace turned down such a generous offer. I would love to know how much money heís looking for. I canít imagine Wallace getting over $10 million per year deal from any team.

Must be a slow day at his office, yawn. He's been reporting this absent details of the offer since the summer.

he didn't want to be here. I'll be surprised if any teams going to give him a better deal after the way he played this year

Well he would have made 50 million with the Steelers through 2016. Which means to equal that he needs to make 47 million in the next 4 years as he made around 3 million last year as a RFA. Will a team pay Wallace 11.75 million a year?

Fat chance.

He'll get 5 year 60 million from someone. If Vincent Jackson gets 55 million Wallace will get more imho. His skill set of world class speed and the numbers he has put up is making some OC out there salivate. I am thinking MIA will be leading the charge and they can't be topped money wise. They need a true number 1 to go with Hartline and help young Tannehill. IF not there, there are another handful of teams with the money to lure him. He will go, we will miss him though not as much as we would if our QB had a good deep ball.

Ed Bouchette article. Grain of salt.

Vincent Jackson is a way better WR than Mike Wallace is, compare their 2012 stats:

Jackson 72 rec for 1384 yds 19.2 avg and 8 TDs
Wallace 64 rec for 836 yds 13.1 avg and 8 TDs

I'm glad he did. Will miss the speed, not the attitude or lack of effort. He rubs off bad on Brown, anyway.
