    So the Jim Wexell/Weslye Saunders tweets got the money right, but the player wrong? That's just weird...


    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.

    Wouldn't be shocked if the Steelers offered Wallace a similar deal. I'm glad they got Brown extended before the season.

    See Mike Wallace??? The Steelers will work with you if you report!!!

    hahahaha what a slap to Mike Wallace. Maybe this will convince him to show up. No doubt about it the Steelers were doing this to make a statement.

    I think it says more about what the Steelers think of AB then anything else, but I can't help but feel the same way.

    Obviously things have been going on behind the scenes -in terms of negotiating this contract- but getting this "secret" deal done the day after you publicly end negotiations with Wallace is a big slap. It not only sends the message that we already have a top-tier receiver we are willing to pay, it pretty much sets a limit on what he can expect to get. There is no way he will earn significantly more than what Brown just got. AB is coming off an MVP year where he set an NFL combined yardage record. Many would argue that he is a better all-around receiver than Wallace. Despite the extra year of service, you would have to treat these players very similarly, as far as how you pay them. Do you guys not agree?

    I would be very interested to know what the Steelers latest offer to Wallace is. If it's in any way, shape, or form better than this deal, he would be a fool to hold out for more...'cause he ain't going to get it. This deal could also serve as the impetus for getting Wallace into camp. Now his agent has a contract which should serve as the barometer, one way or another. The Wallace camp won't be able to negotiate anything however, unless he reports.

    Regardless...great job of locking up a top receiver and avoiding this same mess next year.

    Well they definitely wont be able to keep Brown, Wallace AND Sanders. Especially if Sanders finally has an injury-free season.

    Brown has always handled himself in a professional manner with respect to the organization and had stated publicly that he would handle the Wallace situation differently if it were .him.Great move to lock up a good player that seems to have a team first attitude.Wallace should be kicking himself right about now!!!
