Steelers GM Kevin Colbert told @Edwerderespn that "Mike Wallace is not available for trade."
1. T.J Watt, OLB/DE, Wisconsin - will be a huge mistake if available and we pass
2. Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson
3. Josh Jones, S, N.C. State
3. Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland
4. Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic
5. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M
6. Barry Sanders, RB, Oklahoma State (How can you go wrong with that name, however the sample size is so small that his dad may be better even in his 50's)
7. Alec Torgersen, QB, Pennsylvania
I would not be adverse to trading him. Too bad he's not available for trade. I don't see this ending well for the relationship that is needed to make a long term run with the B&G. Unless Wallace gives his agent a talking to about changing the approach to this, it will be a debacle.

What the Brown signing means
FRIDAY, JULY 27, 2012

After having Mike Wallace spurn a similar offer, the Steelers signed wide receiver Antonio Brown to a five-year, $42-million contract extension on Friday.
What does this mean for Wallace?
It means that his days with the Steelers are numbered.
After giving Brown a big deal, the Steelers aren't likely to hand out another one at the same position.
So his options now are to report to camp, sign his tender and hope he has another big season, or hold out until there are six games left in the season, report, and become a free agent at the end of the year, hoping that somebody will make him a big offer.
He's got a much better chance of getting a big deal next season if he goes out and tears it up this season than he does if he doesn't play.
Brown's contract also likely means that the Steelers won't use the franchise tag on Wallace, either.
