Depends on who's ready to play. If there are two starting quality O lineman, especially guards, snatch them up. If there is only one, get him and look for an ILB.

Denver hasn't contacted Wallace, let's take it easy

Definitely. We need to lock him up now if we're going to, but he doesn't budge, chances are that won't change next year. If this is the case, i'd be hoping for someone to make an offer so we can get the first round pick in return. Something is better than nothing.

How do you know if he budges or what he's asking though? There hasn't been any numbers spoke of or any current comments from Wallace or his agent.

A punter and a kicker no doubt. We could use both. (and if anyone takes that seriously, you have no idea what sarcasm is)

You still have to go BPA and I don't believe trading up or down is an option in this draft. I would imagine one of the picks instantly becomes Hightower as he will probably be BPA and apparently the Steelers became more impressed by him at his Pro Day. Other pick would probably be Oline unless everyone is gone (unfortunately I think this will be the case), in which case I would guess it would be either Ta'amu (a bit of a reach) or Mark Barron (a better prospect but a lesser need).

As much as I don't want to trust Brown and Sanders as our only top two receivers heading into the season, I trust any receiver in the first two rounds not named Blackmon or Floyd even less.

Do we know that for sure? None of us have spoken to Wallace's agent so anything's possible and Peyton just committed this morning.
Do they have the cap room for Wallace and others after Peyton's reported $95 million payday?

I don't know what's going on behind the scenes in the Steeler offices between them and Wallace's agent, but you would think we would have inked something by now. The more we wait, the more the WR price is going up, up, and up and Wallace isn't going to sign for peanuts "just to stay with Pittsurgh". Won't happen. The push and decision will be 90% agent.
Man, we don't even have rumors at this point. It's getting frustrating. Someone will likely come in and put a big offer on the table while we do nothing. Don't be surprised if SF (if they can make amends with and sign Alex Smith) comes calling for Wallace now that Manning's gone.

Well, it just seems to me, based on his actions, that he's interesting in the money at stake. Players that wanted to come back let it be known quite fast, and Antonio Brown strikes me as a player who would do that pretty quickly himself. Wallace on the other hand hasn't spoke much about it at all, and when he has, it was an article I remember that had a very "farewell" tone to it that had quite a lot of fan's worried.

This whole Wallace situation just strikes me as a hyped young gun receiver looking to cash in, and not a talented receiver looking to cement a legacy. I just have a feeling that if we don't sign him to a deal this off-season, he'll have green flying at him next year from around the league and will be on the first flight out of the Burgh.

Manning isnt going to get a boat load of a signing bonus than have vets min. Those antics the commish has halted. He is going to count significantly against the cap as he will want a big ass pay day when he finds out his neck cant take a hit and has to retire. In addition, its highly doubtful an insurance company will underwrite anything guarrantteed against injury for him so he will want some significant upfront dough.

They will have to front load a Wallace deal against 2012 cap, of at least 12-16million to be sure the Steelers won't sign him. Thats not a signing bonus, thats year 1 cap hit.


This is not a 1 year rebuild for this team. They only bright spot they have is they play in a shit ass division, which is why Manning went there.


The contract they're working on for Manning is 5 yr - $95 million
