    Unfortunately, Mark Kaboly has tweeted this:

    @MarkMaddenX -- I am not sure how it got out, but absolutely no deal in in place.

    Hopefully it turns out to be true. I predicted a 5 year, $43 million dollar Crosby-esque contract in the past, so I'll accept these terms if that what it turns out to be.

    I suggested a while back that Mike Wallace's contract could end up looking like Sidney Crosby's last contract (which he should be extending next week for 10 more years). Sid's last deal was for 5 years, $43.5 million ($8.7 million per year).

    that would be a steal if he signed for that. It seemed too good to be true...then I read further into the thread and realized it was too good to be true.

    Which players would they lose next year?

    Antonio Brown? Restricted free agent.

    Ramon Foster and Doug Legursky? Backups who can be had cheap.

    Keenan Lewis? This year will determine a lot for him, but he still shouldn't be expensive based on his career so far

    Rashard Mendenhall? RBs don't cost a ton, and it remains to be seen if they will even want him back depending on how the other guys perform this year.

    There are couple other RFAs, but that's not an issue. There really wont be any pressing issues of players to resign next year which will demand a lot of salary cap space.

    Hardly a steal...

    A fair deal? Sure...

    But $20 mil guaranteed is absolutely not a steal...
