Re: Steelers won't use Franchise-Tag on Wallace
Why would the Steelers let it be known they are not going to franchise him and not wait to the exact last possible moment? Why would the Steelers' Kevin Colbert say last week that Wallace is just scratching the surface of his potential? Are the Steelers hoping for a #1 pick? Is that what they really are after? Seems those two bits of information do nothing but get other teams interested in him.
If he stays as a restricted free agent then he may be knocked down a peg or two and accept a more reasonable offer from the team long term or he becomes an UFA next year and we lose him and get nothing but a low compensatory pick.
