Wallace has gone downhill the past 1.5 years. Nobody else in the league thought he was worth a #1 last year, and he has worked hard to prove them right. He'll test the waters, and sign a deal about the same as the one Brown took with us to stay here, because that's all he'll get.
Wallace was not worth giving up a #1 pick and
a big contract - someone will pay the big $$$ without having to surrender the pick at a number too high for the Steelers to meet given their other needs
Who knows with Mendenhall - I am stunned Tomlibn activated him after Mendenhall blew off teh San Diego game
With Mendenhall, Wallace and Ben being unhappy about either $$$ or a departed coach, the attitude of this team was awful all season - I am glad it ended without a blowout playoff loss
