Default Re: Steelers, Mike Wallace continue to make progress on new deal

Very informative all though I still don't completely understand it. Im not sure if a deal that on the high side would be $40 mil with the guaranteed money paid out in smaller payments will be enough to get Wallace for 5 years. IMO the Vincent Jackson deal gave Wallace a credible argument for more money. Of course a FO like ours doesn't "have to" match what any other team pays anybody else, but I would think that Wallace would at least be asking for the amount that Vincent Jackson got, as Wallace is a MUCH better WR IMO. Reading this article gave me a pretty good idea on where we stand with the salary cap right now, and unfortunately I am less confident now that the FO will reach a deal with Wallace, but somehow they always work wonders so all is not lost with the Wallace situation.
