And Ross is going to insist on overpaying for Mike which will ultimately come back and bite them in the ass because from what I've seen, Tannehill doesn't have a great deep ball. If there's one thing that has come out of this year for Wallace, it's that he can only run deep in straight lines. If Tannehill can't hit him deep, then Ross is going to be crucified for overpaying for him.

Regardless, those TDs will be missed.
Agreed - but the Steelers made their investment in the WR position when they signed Brown - the $$ simply are not available to sign Wallace and he performed last year like someone who knew he was getting out (topped off by not playing the last game after the Steelers were eliminated)

There are all sorts of intrigues regarding how the WR position was utilized, such as why Montgomery resigned as WR coach to return to Duke. Bouchette of the P-G initially speculated Montgomery was encouraged to leave, but know speculates Montgomery wanted out because he did not like Haley's offense (another leak, this one involving a shot at a coach rather than a player - Tomlin needs to say that shit stops now at the first meeting this spring)

Source close to the situation says could be to the tune of $12 mil a year . . .

I'd like to see him stay, but if he does leave, at least it's not to the Taperiots or Ravens.

We do play against Miami this year. Anybody think he'll get shut out or will he have a big game?

if he does go to Miami - its a home game for our guys - I'd say he has a chance to burst a short catch for a long TD run - but, that would be the extent of it.

I would relish the chance to see him get booed and creamed by our secondary

If we lose at home against Miami - we're in for a long season again.

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.

There's no doubt that at times we'll feel the loss of Wallace.

Whether you want him back or not his talent is proven.

But he's gonna be signed for big bucks.

Personal ego and management miscalculation got us here.

Pick up the pieces at WR and move on, Draft a replacement. Sign a FA.
