You're right...my bad. I was thinking of the fact that he had to sign the tender and play or he can't achieve full free agency. The rookie contract is over, but he still has zero leverage and would be a fool to sit out.
"I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.
"Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

I become less and less enamored with Wallace as each day passes; I wish the front office could find a sucker, I mean another team and make a trade with them for their first, hell, I'd take a second for him at this point.
He's a typical Diva wide receiver that believes he is worth more than his performance dictates, trade him, be happy, move on and don't look back.

I think talking about recievers as #1, #2, #3, #4, etc is oversimplifying. He was probably satisfied with the expected and potential roles placed in fron of him by coach Tomlin. Seeing this at the same time as Wallace threatening to sit out....well, i just lost a notch of respect for Wallace. Just get out there and play dude. Dont you love the game?
Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.
Here we go Steelers! Here we go!
This is a negotiation. Of course, Wallace won't sign his tender and will make it look like he intends to sit out. That is really his only play if he wants a contract from the Steelers now. Just like when a car salesmen starts out with sticker price. He knows he likely won't get it, but he might as well try.
Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
