We're dreaming here anyway. The Steelers will wait until the dust settles and grab the next Memo on the cheap.
2013 4th, 7th - 2014 3rd would grab Tate. There's no hope in hell I'm giving Wallace to an AFC team, either. I honestly think that if we got a guy like Tate and had a change of pace guy behind him like Rainey, our back situation is fixed for years to come.
