    I wouldn't trade him for anything less than a #2. Let him come in late and then wear his a$$ out and have him run a whole lot of routes across the middle. I would put as much wear on those tires as we can and then let him go out and try to sell that. IMO it will also expose that he isn't the WR he has been made out to be just as JD Steeler said and his price will come down significantly.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Yea.... trading for a fourth. why? I wouldn't take less than a 2nd if we're talking draft picks only.

    Personally, I still think a deal might get done. Just a hunch. It's a tough call though. The thing that sucks is if Wallace gets a contract and Sanders does extremely well, you can pretty much guarantee that Sanders will NOT get a new contract. There would be too much money invested in WRs.

    Or, do you roll the dice with Emmanuel Sanders and let Wallace walk next year? From a skill perspective, I'm ok with that but Sanders hasn't proven he could stay healthy for an entire season. The Steelers might just wait it out. That seems to make the most sense IMO.

    this makes no sense at all. a fourth round pick? c'mon, we will get a third when he leaves anyways.
    let him sit out until whenever, use him for the time he is here, and franchise him next year if he doesnt have a change of heart about his value or how he values this organization. maybe he will see the light and sign a longterm deal with us. some humility and maturity may set in.
    oh, and just for you ruth, wallace can eat a bag of crap.

    This 4th round talk makes me think of the Santonio trade. Granted, his Twitter comments dug his own grave in Pittsburgh and I understand that the FO just wanted to "wash their hands" of the situation but still... why give up a talent like that for so little. The Raiders, Redskins, Eagles, etc should be on speed dial for situations like that. Why settle for something too low? These guys are good players and are young. The Pats seem to get 1st round picks for washed up players...

    I'd Only Take a 1st round pick, nothing less.
    Other than that, let him play this season and hopefully help us win another ring.
    If he goes, we'd get a 3rd...or we could sign him to an extension.

    Jackson had to sit out a season to get his payday. Makes sense Wally's following his footsteps.

    I don't know if it makes sense but it worked for Jackson. Don't you think as a competitor and an NFL player, Wallace would rather be playing the game this year rather than watching it on the TV especially in the prime of his career?

    It's not like Wallace didn't have any offers. He could play 1 year for us for close to 3 million (oh, the horrors). Or, he could have had job security and guaranteed money by signing a 5 year, 50 million dollar contract and he turned that down. The ball was in his court and he chose not to pursue either.
