The converse to that is that he's now playing lights out and in a Super Bowl, and if he wins, he's got them by the balls. Flacco will want paid like a top 5 QB and it will cost the Ravens the opportunity to re-sign some of their other important guys.
exactly. Lots of Ravens fans down here think this is the beginning of something - while I think the Ravens will always give us a hard time - if/when they break the bank for Flacco - you'll see a couple of other play makers gone. Add their only leader retiring plus potentially having to have the SB Champs target on their backs - next season could be really ugly for the Ravens. Aka - a prime opportunity for our Steelers to play with some more passion and nothing to lose attitude.

Yeah, I can see a Ravens Super Bowl hangover next year. Lewis will be gone. Ed Reed will be one year older. They will lose a couple of guys to free agency. I could see their center Matt Birk retiring. It'll be tougher for them to return next year for sure.

I think that Reed may retire after this year as well if they win it.

He was on the radio a couple of weeks ago in Baltimore saying he would be playing next year. I could see him changing his mind if they win it all though. He's always hurt and getting old. He's been chasing this ring his whole career with the Ravens and I could see him leaving if he gets it.

The patriots would be a natural fit
Welker is probably done there (he's made a few crucial drops in the playoffs the last two years) but they have the best TE in the game with a pretty good backup one too, a deep threat would help their offense a lot.

I think Baltimore would make a major push for him.

They will have to pony up quite a bit of cash to keep Flacco now whether it be via franchise tagging him or signing him to a new long-term deal. They also have key defensive players heading to free agency in Ellerbee and Kruger. We can rest assured we won't be seeing Wallace in purple and black next year I think.

I can definitely see him with the Patriots or Browns next year. I'm sure Belichick would love to have a deep threat for Brady that they haven't had since Randy Moss. As Steelers5895 said, it's probably the one thing holding them back from another Super Bowl appearance.

The Browns could seriously use some WR help to put around Weeden (or whoever ends up being their starter next year). Don't forget that their new owner Jimmy Haslam came from the Steelers organization and would have quite a bit of familiarity with Wallace as a player. He could come out aggressive in free agency and try to prove to the fans in Cleveland that he's serious about turning things around there by signing some big name guys like Wallace.
Browns a possibility as per what you said. The Bengals are another one. They certainly could use a receiver to complement A.J. Green. Coincidentally, those two teams are in excellent cap shape. Same for the Colts. They need another receiver instead of Avery.

Wallace, being from the south, New Orleans, and playing college ball at Ole Miss, might prefer some warmer weather, other things being relatively equal. It’s not all that warmer in Indy, but you do have that retractable roof. I’d think about Arizona and Arians seriously if that team was in better cap shape.

You wonder what effect good buddy Keenan Lewis and where he goes will have on Wallace’s decision, if any.

Miami will have upwards of $40M in cap space, Indy will have a lot, too.

I'm guessing he's going to take his talents to Souf Beach.
