Re: Steelers To Extend Brown?
But the fact is with the market the way it is for WRs we are going to lose Mike Wallace if not this year then next for sure. Because any contract with him is going to start at 10 million per year bottom line. And the Steelers will not pay that.
If Brown a 3rd year player is offered a long term deal this summer for even I believe 6 million per year he would take it. I don't think he would put off a nice signing bonus and guaranteed money with the uncertainty of the future and having to play this year and then the year after that as a RFA before he could sign for any significant guaranteed money. Figure he would earn maybe 3.5 million the next 2 seasons or get like 12 or more million for that same amount of time.
Would be ironic for Wallace though playing for 2.7 million and seeing Brown sign for 6 mil per.
