    This is a tough one. I think he signs the tender and signs a long-term deal w/ the Steelers.

    At a minimum, I hope he signs the tender and he plays for the Steelers in 2012 but he'll hit UFA and sign somewhere else next year.

    IMO he'll only signs a long term deal if he has a sub-par season performance wise. He seems determined to have a big pay day no matter how he gets it.
    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!

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE

    I have always been in the "this will get done" camp and I still am. I may not be if it's not resolved by the end of the week.

    But what if he holds out until week 10 (or whatever) and then plays sub-par or gets injured. Either way, that could cause him to lose millions upon millions. His options are not very good especially if he wants to play this year. By far his best option was the contract he was already offered. Now, his options are likely even less attractive. Outside of signing a long-term deal with the Steelers, his second best (safe option) is to not play AT ALL this season.

    Not playing at all does nothing because he doesn't accrue his required service time. I don't really give a flying fart whether he likes his options or has good options. He and only he put himself in this situation by overplaying his hand and getting greedy.

    If he comes back and doesn't play up to his potential then he will directly effect his marketability. Sucks to be him but he did this to himself.

    I disagree about the 4th round pick. The Browns gave up a 2nd round pick in next year's draft for pot-head Gordon...

    Some team will be willing and able to pony up a significant pick...

    Unfortunately, it doesn't suck too bad to be him. He can hold out and join the team in the 10th week to accrue the final year he needs to be eligible for UFA. If he comes back in the 10th week, chances are he won't play or very little limiting the possibility of injury and getting paid $168,000 per game while doing it. Then next year rolls around the Steelers may or may not franchise him and he can negotiate a contract with any team in the league. It may not be the one he wants, but someone will still pay him pretty good money to be on their team. I don't expect to see Mike Wallace until week 10, then very little of him on the field and he'll try his hand at UFA next year.

    And, so it goes with WR Divas...they're an interesting bunch the wide receivers of the NFL. Somewhere along the way they have decided that they are more important to teams than quarterbacks, this self-importance is leading to interesting scenarios.

    Good point. I forgot about the eligibility requirement. If he sits out until week 10, I'd be really surprised if the Steelers showed him much playing time. It's just not their style.
