Default Re: Mike Wallace turned down $10 million a yr deal from Steelers

Will the Pittsburgh Steelers Regret Letting Mike Wallace Test the Open Market?

March 7, 2013 by Dan Parzych

As much as the Pittsburgh Steelers would like to bring back Mike Wallace for the 2013, it’s basically impossible at this point considering how much they’re already struggling to get under the salary cap. Of course, the main question that will most likely be in the back of their minds until the regular season gets under way–will they end up regretting the decision to not give Wallace a long-term deal last year when they had the chance?

Over the last three years, Wallace has proven to be one of the most dangerous and effective receivers in the NFL as he’s caught 196 passes for 3,286 yards and 26 touchdowns. Clearly, Wallace is the type of receiver that any team would be lucky to have and whatever team does end up signing him–it’s safe to say he’ll play a big impact when it comes to how well they perform during the 2013 season.

This is one of those unfortunate situations for Pittsburgh considering they would love to provide Wallace with the long-term deal he’s fought so hard for, but it’s just impossible to make happen at this point in the offseason. If the Steelers really wanted to keep him around for the long run, they would have put more of an effort to make sure he stuck a round for the long run last offseason when he was holding out of camp for a new contract.

Hopefully, the Steelers don’t look back at their situation and regret not signing Wallace when they had the chance. Otherwise, Pittsburgh’s passing game could be in for a long season in 2013.
