    2.611M - 1st round compensation*

    I would pick this one. Maybe it lures someone in to swipe him away for a first round pick. Brown becomes our deep threat considering he is about a gnats azz slower then wallace and has better hands. We pick another WR in the mid rounds and bring in some UDFA from smaller schools to compete in camp. Use the 1st round pick on OL.

    Didn't Wallace's peers in the NFL who play against him just vote him to the Pro Bowl along with fans from across the country? Didn't we hear from former players who are now on networks commenting about how other teams gameplan against Wallace, did hear that about Brown???? Guess they all know nothing.

    I love both Wallace and Brown because together they are synergistic on what they cause to happen on the field. The attention Wallace gets has allowed Brown to be successful. Don't kid yourself though by thinking Brown would get the same deep threat coverage and attention that Wallace does. Brown is a move the chains type of guy with great after the catch ability. If you take one away there is nothing equal to make that equation the same and that threat the same.

    If you want a team that can get into scoring battles with other teams like Green Bay, New Orleans and New England you would not let Wallace go anywhere.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    You would, however, get rid of Bruce Arians! Guess we will have to rely on our D to prevent those teams from scoring quite as much like we normally do when playing playoff caliber teams.

    Honestly, the only 'shootout' I can EVER remember the Steelers winning was the game Ben put up 500+ yards passing vs. Green Bay a few years ago. That is really the ONLY time I can remember something like that.

    I may not like his weaknesses but I love his strength(s)
    +1.... it might not be so much about the plays HE is making as much as about the plays others are. Still a 1000 yd WR....could do far far worse. But somebody will likely offer him crazy money....then will need to make a decision. The crazy money needs to go to Brown.

    An actual on-field opponent thought Brown was a better receiver than Wallace, and this was said at the beginning of November, before Antonio really took off and before Wallace really tailed off.

    Lardarius Webb thinks Antonio Brown is better than Mike Wallace

    Steelers receiver Mike Wallace has become one of the great young wideouts in the NFL. But Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb thinks there’s even a greater receiver.

    On the same team.

    “Every time somebody asks me [a question], they’re always talking about Mike Wallace. But they have a guy No. 84 in Antonio Brown who is better than 17 [Wallace] in all aspects of the game,” Webb said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. “He’s a great returner, a great wide receiver.”

    Re: Is Wallace worth his big pay check?

    You know what team would love to have Wallace and has picks to burn?

    Cleveland

    They could easily land Wallace. The one thing that would prevent this is they would not want to give the Steelers two high picks this draft.

    However, he is just what their offense needs to go with Greg Little.

    RGIII, Greg, Little, Mike Wallace, Josh Cribbs is much better than what they had this year.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    And I wouldn't be surprised to hear people saying similar things about Manny Sanders soon.

    I predicted Brown would be the best WR back when many were screaming about Wallace.

    Anyway.... just about every Steeler fan was on the Wallace wagon until Brown changed our mind.

    If someone offers crazy money Wallace has to go.... but I would love to keep him if possible. Let Mend go...

    However, if they tendered him a contract as an RFA, and we had the highest tender on him (requiring 1st and 3rd round compensation), they would have to give up their own 1st round pick (#4 overall) as opposed to the 1st rounder they got from Atlanta (#22 overall), so they would not be able to have both Griffin and Wallace.

    Too true. What if they offered a straight up #22 for Wallace. Would the Steelers accept?
