It would be different if we had a probowl Running Back and a solid offensive line. We Don't. Are passing offense is are offense. Without wallace are offense will be marginal at best. Yeah I love brown too. But he isn't wallace. He will be getting double teamed without mike. Sanders has show some flashes but that is it. He reminds me of Willie Reid. Alot of promise but can't stay heathy. If we lose wallace yeah it's not the end of the world. But the offense will suffer. Anyone that doesn't think so is out of there mind. Or just blind.

Default Source: 49ers, Moss agree to deal - one less slot for Wallace

The San Francisco 49ers and receiver Randy Moss have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

One less team to chase Wallace

Default Re: Wallace or First round pick?????

Get used to figuring out who to draft with the first round pick from New England

This from Peter King

I think Pittsburgh wide receiver Mike Wallace is one of the best bargains ever in restricted free agency history. Remember this about the Steelers: They've cut to the bone on the cap already. Wallace is down to make $2.74 million on a one-year deal in 2012. And staring the Steelers in the face next season is another restricted free agent the Steelers like very much -- wideout Antonio Brown. Let's say one of the teams low in the first round with some cap flexibility and a receiver need -- San Francisco, New England -- makes Wallace a front-loaded offer with a big 2012 cap number. I could see the Steelers letting Wallace go and taking the first-round pick as compensation.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...eagency/3.html

And this from ESPN Grantland

New England Patriots

Top priority: Getting Mike Wallace


Is there a better fit between player and team this offseason than Mike Wallace and the Patriots? New England's passing offense is already very good, sure, but their inability to stretch the field without a healthy Rob Gronkowski cost them in the Super Bowl. Gronkowski's ankle will be fine come 2012, but he only fell to the second round of the 2010 draft because of his injury woes in college, so counting on him to always be healthy is dangerous. Wallace is a vertical threat beyond compare, and at just 25, the Patriots would be getting him for the prime of his career. It would cost a first-round pick, but the Patriots have an extra first-rounder thanks to the Mark Ingram trade with the Saints last year, so that wouldn't be an enormous hindrance. The Patriots would also be taking a key player away from their perennial rivals at the top of the AFC. Honestly, if you're a Patriots fan and you're not picketing on Route 1 for this to happen, you're not doing your job.

It'll be the Patriots to make our life a living hell. Still, I believe we can survive without Wallace.

Well the Niners will take a step back this year. A locker room cancer who doesn't have a QB to throw to him anyway, can't see how this makes them better, but I hate the niners anyway so who cares.

Who says they don't also get Wallace? I believe they have the room.

Default Re: how long do teams have to sign Wallace

i agree. everyone is saying that we will still have great WR's but i dont see it. Sanders is always hurt and hasnt made a full season yet so what happens when he goes down? Ben gets blitzed into next week.

Default Re: how long do teams have to sign Wallace

I would love to keep Walace, but I just don't see it happening. Furthermore, now that Brucie is gone, it might not be an absolute necessity to have five starting-caliber wide receivers. Maybe having Brown, Sanders, Cotchery, Heath and Mendy/Redman for Ben to use might just be enough. I can't see why it shouldn't be, especially if we devote some high picks to the offensive line.
