This is true...except that our #1 producing WR was actually Brown.

First off, Ben needs to restructure his monster contract! Then you tell M17 to take a 3 year $8million contract and tell him if he continues on this track he'll get an even bigger contract! He knows he is the best DEEP threat in the NFL but he also knows he needs to improve his shorter route running to get where he wants to be!!!

When Ben is reading the routes the first place he looks is Wallace! That makes him the #1 WR...

You are right, he's the first read. However, I agree that Brown's our true #1 receiver. He's an all around receiver who can make plays anywhere. Wallace is a deep-threat, and a scary one to cover.

Truth. And unless Haley throws a curve ball, I'm betting we no longer see every other play being an attempted 30 yard bomb to Wallace this coming year. Brown is the real deal, a multi-dimensional offensive weapon. He makes the clutch short and mid range catches, he can pick up some hard fought yards, and is a good return man, too.

I'm liking Sanders as well. He made some catches in the Bronco's game if i'm not mistaken. He's a lot like Brown.

Got this about restricted free agent:

Mike Wallace (PIT) - Restricted - No receiver in the league forces safeties back like Wallace. His deep speed is second to none on the perimeter and he capitalizes on it with the ability to run those vertical routes proficiently. He's improving in other areas of his game and is an extremely valuable piece to the Steelers' offense. Keep in mind the highest Restricted tender would only net the Steelers a first round pick, which Wallace is certainly worth.

There will be no 1st and 3rd or any other pick! It's only a 1st.... In my opinion, there is no pick in the draft woth it!

I wouldn't do it, but he's worth a first round pick, no lower than top 15 however. I don't think it matters, we'll get a deal done.

And with that 1st round pick, who are you taking? And who you brining in to take MWs spot?

Promote Sanders, draft lineman with the first round picks to keep Roethlisberger alive. Maybe draft a wide-receiver later on, but I don't think it'll matter, Wallace likely isn't going anywhere. He sure as hell better put in the work if he comes back next year, he gave up on a lot of plays in the second half last year. I'm assuming Bruce Arians may have played a part in that.
