I don't . NE thrives on everyone doing their job to perfection, not raw talent. Wallace is the opposite. He will just piss off Brady and the hoody.

I was saying the same thing in another thread: Wallace... or Bowe.

Interestingly, immediately after Brady resigned, BB restructured... and I mean IMMEDIATELY.

Why? Well, BB has stated that "his" priority is to get Wallace re-signed. I've predicted that BB would give up some of his own money, to ensure that his favorite target gets resigned. And thus, the timing suggests that once BB saw that Wallace would not only leave, but go to the hated Taperiots, he immediately volunteered to restructure.

I still think that Wallace wants too much money for either the Steelers or Taperiots to "comfortably" pay; whereas, the Dolphins have lots of disposable cash. BUT, now that the Taperiots have the funds, the also have the ability (if they so choose) to indeed sign Wallace.

BB hasn't restructured.....yet. The Steelers just start to talk with him about restructure. That's the right time to start the talk if they want to get it below the cap. And the Steelers may wait until last minute to finalise the restructure anyway. So the franchise tag QB cap hit doesn't get lower and helps the Ravens.

BB and the FO are waiting for the Flacco deal to finalize before any numbers are discused. Both sides are in agreement the contract will be restructured, but there is no concenses on the final numbers, and possible extentions.

Me, while we are at it, I'd offer an extention now as opposed to later so we can spread the cap hit over a longer period of time. I'm pretty sure even with all the griping posted here about Ben, nobody really wants to see him go. We may as well keep him for the duration of his career.

Patriots to target Mike Wallace?

February 26, 2013 by Paul Jackiewicz

Not only did Tom Brady’s new contract free up some cap space to potentially re-sign Wes Welker, it could also help the Patriots finally acquire the deep threat they’ve been looking for.

As Ian Rapoport of NFL.com points out, Wallace “has always garnered” the praise of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.

Belichick and the Patriots know Brady doesn’t have a lot of time left in the NFL as he gets ready to turn 36 this year, they might be willing to overpay for a player like Wallace to try to get at least one more Super Bowl title.

It will be interesting to see what happens once free agency kicks off on March 12th.

Wallace may get that 2000 yards he talked about if he goes to New England

Restructuring 9 times out of ten helps the player more. I'd love to see someone " really " give up money to help the team.

I agree with you, 2000 is out of his reach. But he will make that offense a lot better if that's were he ends up.

There's only one receiver in the NFL capable of 2000 yards right now and his name is Megatron. We're kidding ourselves if we think anyone else could do it.
