Post Steelers, Mike Wallace continue to make progress on new deal

I thought this was worth it's own thread...



The time to sign players tendered a franchise tag has come and gone, but the pink elephant that is Mike Wallace still remains in the Steelers living room, with Wallace potentially holding out of camp, unhappy with his $2.72 million tender.

CBSSports.com's NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports Thursday that the parties are in "close contact" and that the two sides continue to make progress on a new deal.

"The sides have remained in close contact and continued their dialogue and are expected to maintain a steady pace with the start of training camp looming," La Canfora reports. "There has been some movement and though no deal is imminent and work remains to be done, the situation has certainly improved since early this offseason. Both sides are motivated to complete a long-term contract."

Yep. Certainly seems worthy of it's own to me, as this contract situation may be coming to a close!

Now with Jonathon Scott gone, we've freed up 2.2 million. That makes a deal even more likely to happen.

Seriously, no one runs a sports team like bosses better then the Steelers. Maybe the Lakers but the Steelers might be the baddest ones of all. Pretty much told Mike Wallace, hey brah, you need to wait your turn and chilax. Finally, he submitted and now the deal is close. BOSS!

This really is the best Front-Office in football, and the mere fact that we're almost ALWAYS in the playoff hunt as a football team, makes you proud, does it not? I'm just proud to be a fan of the team that NO ONE wants to play in the playoff's, and now i'm proud to be a fan of a team with an excellent front office. I don't need a Mike Wallace contract to label this FO as one of the best. The draft did that for me.
