Ed Bouchette On OTA’s, Wallace’s Contract Negotiations

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – 93.7 The Fan Steelers Insider, and Post-Gazette beat writer, Ed Bouchette joined the Fan Morning Show on Monday morning to preview this week’s OTA’s.

Willie Colon informed us that he will be moving from tackle to guard this season, which opens the door for newly drafted tackle, Mike Adams to start the season at right tackle. Ed tells us that Marcus Gilbert will remain at left tackle.

Ed reported that Mike Wallace will not report to OTA’s because of his contract negotiations. Ed believes that is not a big deal, as long as he doesn’t miss training camp. However, the wide receiver is allowed to sit out nine games before his contract year is foregone.

Running back is an area of concern for the Steelers, and Ed reminds us that there isn’t a high draft-pick among them with Rashard Mendenhall missing time early on this season.
