    Wallace will not sign tender...Wants long term deal or he plans on sitting out

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace has no plans to sign his contract tender, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
    Wallace, a restricted free agent, received a tender from the Steelers of $2.742 million earlier in the offseason.

    The 25-year-old will sit out the teamís offseason activities if he doesnít get a new deal, according to Schefter. The two sides have had a hard time finding common ground on a contract, Schefter reported.
    Last season, Wallace recorded 72 receptions (a career high), 1,193 receiving yards and eight touchdowns for Pittsburgh en route to his first Pro Bowl selection.
    The Steelers did reach an agreement on a two-year deal to retain wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery. He is expected to compete with Emmanuel Sanders for the No. 3 receiver spot.

    I don't blame Wallace. Millions of dollars are at stake.

    He's a free agent. Not a big deal. Yet. It's not like he had a SIGNED contract and refused to go to work.

    I don't think it's a big deal either, he'll sign at some point. What if he signs that tender and gets hurt? God forbid obviously but say it's a injury that may take away some of his speed. He'd be screwed. I don't blame him for wanting a long term deal and believe the Steelers will get one hashed out.

    I had a feeling that these contract negotiations are not going well.

    I'm sure Wallace was offered a long-term deal. But, since it wasn't Fitzgerald money, he won't sign it

    Sounds like agent-speak...chances are the deal is being worked out & the agent is making a play for a bit more money on top.

    That said, great reporting. Zero evidence, no quotes- just Schefter's opinion from the look of it.
