It appears as teams didn't want to give up that 1st rounder as Wallace has been pretty much completely ignored thus far.
There is no rush to bid for a RFA unlike signing an unrestricted FA - now that the (inflated) market rate has been set Wallace and potential bidders (pretty much down to the 49ers now that they lost a receiver and Patriots - i cannot imagine Mike Brown will pay those prices to bring Walace to the Bengals) see what a long term deal is worth.

Steelers will not be able to match what Wallace will take as a long term deal this year - the question is whether paying that amount of $$ and a first round pick for what it will cost to sign Wallace is worth it.

Just like the shark in Jaws. The New England Patriots are waiting very quietly with no news of visits by Brandon Lloyd or anyone else.



What are they up to?

I believe Wallace talks start at 10 mil per year period. And we know the Steelers aren't going anywhere near that, so say goodbye to Mike Wallace if not this year then next year for sure. If Santonio Holmes makes 10 mil per then Wallace is going to want at least that. Santonio still hasn't made a probowl.

I assure you when Vincent Jackson's playing careeer is over he will not have averaged 5.5 mil per year.

Bus Cook's phone message in regards to Mike Wallace.
Want to talk contract with Mike Wallace? Don't even bother us if your not willing to start at 10 mil per year.

He doesn't drop many passes at all. I think most Steeler fans have short term memory.

I don't remember many drops from Mike Wallace at all . In fact the only one I can recall is the drop in the super bowl on 4th down that ended the game. He really doesn't drop many.

i believe in the shark theory. some people say the patriots would NEVER give up a first AND pay 2 wr's top money. but then again, people were certain the patriots would bring in brandon lloyd by now. if nothing else, the patriots are gonna make wallace an offer to atleast force us to match and strap us with the cap hit. we arent getting wallace for 2.7 mil this year. aint gonna happen.

unfortunately (fortunately for us, i guess if we wanna keep wallace for another year) teams only seem to go stupid when trading for other teams.

seattle gave up a first for deion branch. cowboys gave up 2 firsts for joey galloway. cowboys also gave up a ransom for joey galloway. tampa bay gave up 2 firsts for keyshawn johnson.

we practically had to give away sb mvp santonio holmes (who we traded a significant amount to move up in the draft to get) and it appears we cant even get teams to sniff wallace.

people even laughed at the patriots trading a 2nd round pick for wes welker and now they look golden. then again, the patriots can do no wrong and can pretty much trade any player they want for what ever ransom they want.

We have a new definition for the top end of the market

The Detroit Lions signed star receiver Calvin Johnson to a seven-year extension Wednesday, the team announced on its Twitter account.

An NFL source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the contract is worth $132 million and includes $60 million guaranteed. Johnson's contract is the richest deal ever for an NFL wide receiver, exceeding the $120 million deal Larry Fitzgerald signed with the Arizona Cardinals last year.

I cannot guess what the market rate will be ($35 million per?) when the next round of contracts for franchise level QBs are negotiated
