Given the stats that he's put up over the last 4 years, there is no doubt in logical minds that the Steelers got the most out of the relationship. Wallace earned every penny he got and more.
i agree year 1-3 for sure. But, that doesnt give him a pass for his performance in 2012. Dropped passes, half a$$ed run routes, minimal efforts on passes he had to go all out for. He played poorly and its a what have you done for me lately league.

i can live with drops, cant live with poor efforts.

now, i totally get it, steelers DO NOT show loyalty to any players , if in the eyes of the organization a player is done or asking too much they are gone. so, i understand Wallace making business decisions.
