If you trade a player on which you have applied the first round tender, does the tender get traded with the player? Meaning, does the team you traded with only have to pay him the tender salary for the one year and then negotiate a new contract? Or, are the Steelers the only team that can retain Wallace's services for the 2.7 million for this year?
1.25) Artie Burns - CB, Miami
2.58 ) Sean Davis - S/CB, Maryland
3.89) Javon Hargrave - DT, S. Carolina St.
4.123) Jerald Hawkins - OT, LSU
6.220) Travis Feeny - OLB, Wash
7.227) Demarcus Ayers - WR, Hou
7.246) Tyler Matakevich - OLB, Temple
The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?
I hit him as hard as I could - Jack Lambert
I honestly don't know...
It may be that, since the player isn't under contract, he can't be traded...or, perhaps only the rights to negotiate with the player can be traded...
I'll have to look it up...
Ed: Steelers Brown Won't Hold Out as RFA
THURSDAY, 31 MAY 2012 WRITTEN BY ED BOUCHETTE
--- Wide receiver Antonio Brown, who could be in the same boat as Mike Wallace this time next year, said no matter what, he does not plan to stay away from OTAs.
“Whatever the case may be, I plan on being here.”
Of course, a lot can happen between now and then and Brown did not state he definitely would not stay away, just that his plans are to be here. He and Emmanuel Sanders both could be restricted free agents one year from now. If the Steelers do not sign Wallace and he goes elsewhere as a free agent next year, a twin holdout by Brown and Sanders would leave the cupboard at wide receiver pretty bare.
If you add up what we have read recently: Need to sign three WRs starting next year, more use of TE Heath Miller, more use of RBs in passing game, running more, etc. Why then would you even consider paying Wallace $9-10M per year because other teams over paid other WRs?
The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"
The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"
This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

I keep reading people suggesting that players get X amount of dollars per year. That's not fact in regard to NFL contracts. The NFL is not the NBA or MLB where contracts are guaranteed. Many NFL contracts are back loaded with money that many players will never see. The money that matters most is the signing bonus/guaranteed money. Guaranteed money is probably going to be the biggest obstacle in contract negotiations.
8 years / $120,000,000 - Guaranteed Money $50,000,000
since Wallace wants Larry Fitzgerald $, this is the neighborhood that Wallace is asking for. I fully realize the Steelers are not going to give him this kind of $, but for those who think that we can lowball Wallace and he will accept I think you are mistaken.
Not going to be cheap.
