Re: Steelers won'y use Franchise-Tag on Wallace
It's not that the FO feel's they can't move on without him, it's just they're not going to cough up nine million a year for a receiver with a lot yet to prove. He isn't worth that kind of money, and i'm sure other team's understand this. I'd be shocked to see him go anywhere, although i'd like that extra first round pick, just not at his expense.
But, with that being said, i'd rather have Wallace than a First rounder, and that's likely what's going to happen. The fact that he's open to free-agency mean's nothing. Teams will laugh at what he "thinks" he's worth, and i'm sure his opinion of his worth differs from that of the teams in interest, including us. If Wallace is going, it'll be next year. That's MUCH more likely, in my opinion.
