My apologies to anyone who is offended by my opinion on this internet forum.

You might as well save yourself the trouble and put your disclaimer in your signature, no?

That article was written by a blogger, not someone with any insight into the negotiations. To the best of my knowledge, no one knows what Wallace has asked for or what the Steelers have offered. Hopefully, there's not too big of a gap in what he wants and what they're able and willing to pay.

Wallace is only hurting himself and his teammates at this point. I'm extremely disappointed in how Wallace is handling this situation. Bottom line, he's scared. He knows Brown is going to outshine him this year and he's trying to get paid before it happens.

Wallace had 800 yds and 5 TD's in the first 8 games of last year. Wallace only had 393 yds and 3 TD's during the last 8 games of the year.

Antonio Brown had 431 yds and 1 TD in the first 8 games of last year. Brown had 677 yds and 1 TD during the last 8 games of the year.

Now, I'm not sure the Steelers are looking closely at this and asking themselves "who do we give the big contract?" but they might be.

I just think Wallace is being selfish and hurting his team at this point. He has to know there is nothing he can do.

Ricardisimo: El-Gonzo Jackson frustrated with Wallace contract status threads

In a less than shocking revalation, Steelersfever curmudgeon El-Gonzo Jackson has become frustrated with the obsession with Mike Wallace and threads about his contract. GM Kevin Colbert has said publicly that he believes they can sign Wallace long term. Wallace has allegedly tweeted to his followers not to believe everthing they read in the media and that things are fine. Yet, many on the message boards have taken to bashing or defending Wallace.

When reached for comment, Jackson said: " I cant wait for training camp to start" and " I'm out of preparation-H and these hurt".

Thank you. He also tweeted that he will be with the Steelers this year (as thought there was any question of that).

Ike Taylor believes Mike Wallace will show up for camp

JUN24, 2012 WRITTEN BY PAUL JACKIEWICZ



Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor told the New Orleans Times-Picayune that he believes that his teammate, wide receiver Mike Wallace will show up for training camp.

“He’s going to be there (training camp),” Taylor told Albert Buford of The Times-Picayune on Saturday. “They’ll get it done. When you talk about that kind of money, it’s not an overnight type of deal. By the end of the day, I think for sure he’s going to get that thing done. Both sides are working together, so that’s a good thing.”

I don’t see Wallace staging any type of long hold out. At the end of the day if a deal doesn’t get done, he’ll sign his restricted free agent tender and show up before the regular season.
