trust you?

why?

plenty of people have said that no team will give up a first rounder for him, yet nobody can answer why teams have recently given up so much (and much more) for joey galloway, roy williams, deion branch, and keyshawn johnson.

wallace may not get offered the tender value (teams seem to know the steelers are intent on matching it) but it wont be because his is not AS GOOD as you suggest.

plus youre wrong on a technicality. teams can offer wallace whatever they want and he STILL wont be gone for another 7 days.

He'll be gone in 2013. I was hoping some team would take him so the Steelers would get something of value in return.

...or our most expensive lineman (who also happens to be our most neglected ball catcher), heath miller, is gone.

Pay him or pay the price
this guy could be lights out for the next 7-8 years
Haley's new offense could hurt his numbers though
He is not yet Calvin Johnson/Fitzgerald

But he is getting there
I'd say he is a B+ receiver right now but withthe potential to be an A
A+ is Calvin Johnson/FItz
he will always be a notch below them

we wont have the money to tag him. yes the cap will go up but so does everybody's contracts because of them dropping it this year to get us under the cap.

Sorry tony for my bad technicality. What i meant to say was; if he was worth giving up a first rounder plus all the cash(contract) a team will have to give up for him; do you not think a team would have put an offer sheet for him alredy??? Look buddy; i dont want to argue with you; but you suggest that teams are not offering him a contract because the steelers will match it. How are the steelers gonna match it with there cap the way it is?? Bottom line is the steelers put the 2.7 on him because it was a smart business descision and they will not fork over 8 to 9 million for this guy because he isn't worth it. And other teams are not gonna give up there first rounder to grab him. Why??? he isn't worth it. Cheers !!!!

They will have the money to tag him next year and the year after. It doesn't matter that "everyone" else will have cap space next year and the year after. It matters that the Steelers have the cap space, thats it.

As I stated before the Steelers have about 15million left in reworks they can do if needed. Finding cap space isn't an issue. Agreeing to match a high contract is the issue and sacrificing something else dwn the road.

Fins now are agaisnt the wall, they are out of it, plus their pick is way to high for Wallace anyway. 49ers, out, pats out.
Unless Manning goes to the Broncos they dont meet the current criteria Wallace said he wanted. Even with Manning I don't think they will go after Wallace and give up a pick.

This years pace on Wr's definately shows Brown is probably safe next year as well. All plays out well for the Steelers.
