Re: Lions/Calvin Johnson help Steelers
I have pretty much accepted the fact that Wallace is gone. First he and his agent know what his value is, and with other teams signing Wideouts to huge salaries you can expect them to what the same kind of deals. Next unless the Front Office pulls a rabbit out of the hat we have no cap space to sign any player to a huge deal.
While we may be able to hold him this year, (teams not willing to pay a huge salary AND give up a first round pick), and even franchise him the next year and even the next year, I believe it will cause animosity between Wallace and the FO. This could turn into a DeSean Jackson type of season. I am sorry but I see no way out of a sticky situation. If the Steeler FO pulls off a long term deal then they will have earned the title of miracle workers.
