Ok, had to start a new thread with a fresh question regarding Mike's hold out. A logical person would assume that Wallace has drafted a plan that he thinks will work in his favor at some point down the road. He now missed the opening of training camp...

Given that the Steelers have a history of NOT negotiating until a player shows up for training camp, what is his ace in the hole? If you were him, how do you envision this turning out in your favor?

IMO, the only thing I can see him holding out for is the hope that the new receivers don't pan out and the offense sputters because of it, and the Steelers cave. Other than that, every day he misses from here on out is only hurting his chance to gel with the offense and showcase his stuff for next year's bidding war.

I dont see another reason for him to hold out, and if he has no plan but waiting until the last six games to sign, I hope that Tomlin keeps his butt on the inactive roster or keeps him on the bench until the season is over. Let him take those highlight reels to his next big money gig...
