Default Could Wallace hold out?

If he gets no offer sheets and is forced to play on a one-year deal for 2.7 million, I just don't see him going for that. The dude seems to be really looking to cash in, but I don't get the sense that the Steelers are that interested in giving him a long-term deal for the kind of money he's chasing. I could easily see him holding out in that situation.

Sure can, but than it just carries over to next year. Than how will it look next year if he turns into someone who doesnt go with the system?

Probably would cost him quite a bit more money to play that game. I don't see a hold out as the problem. If no offers are given to him, his value obvioously dimenshes to a point. but it doesnt go down to 2.7mill, lol

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

Moss went for a paycheck.

49ers didnt meet the criteria anyway. Wallace said a top tier QB, not a guy who had 1 good year after how many shitty years? Plus Wallace would never catch a 50 yard bomb as the QB cant throw that far.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I thought that the tender was for 2.7, so if he doesn't get any offer sheets, that would be his salary for the upcoming year, assuming that he and the Steelers don't agree to a long-term deal.

I think if he wanted, he could hold out until week 10 and still get credit for playing the year. Even if he doesn't hold out, they could have a Desean Jackson situation on their hands where you have a malcontent in the locker room.

I think they changed the rules where a player has to report by week 6 or so or he loses that credited year. Holdouts are very rare in today's game. Mostly they miss training camp because they hate camp. If you've followed the Steelers over the years they absolutely do not negotiate one second if your holding out and they don't negotiate once the regular season starts, so that would get him nowhere except maybe traded like Mike Merriweather. Probably not for a number 1 though.

So it's just better to lose him for a #1 now then go through a probable holdout and probable loss of him in 2013. One thing I would do for sure this summer is sign Antonio Brown long term before he becomes a Restricted free agent next year.

He'll prolly have a year like he did at the Titans....

The best year in the history of the league for FA Wide Receivers and they sign Randy Moss.

If nobody puts dibs on Wallace, I think he and the Steelers work out a long term deal in the neighborhood of 5 years, $35M

Default Saints aid the Steelers

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/76...on-5-year-deal

Colston 5 year 40million.

So between Johnson and Colston one would think the area is set. Colston is no slouch, and teams do not seem to be going huge for their #1 WR, huge meaning 9-10million plus, lol.

Wallace can't be expecting to go over that number, and the Steelers can't be expecting to get him for 2.7mill.

Someone always will over pay if they want a player badly enough, although i doubt New England would do so.

Downside to the Colston signing is that is one less free agent WR whom a team might sign over Wallace

IMO Wallace is gone or the Steelers already would have signed him to a long term deal
