Thread: Wallace Predictions?-Play the game & go on record here...

  1. #21
    Pre-season game 1 is Thursday, August 9th.

    I think he shows up one week before that to get himself involved in the pre-season

    He'll be back. Colbert said that Wallace is not on the trade market. Colbert still wants to sign him long-term, and when Colbert wants his man, Colbert pretty much always gets his man. I'd imagine that in the near future, Wallace will receive calls from Hines explaining what happened when he held out of camp, Ben will call him and talk about how special they can be in this new offense, his B.F.F. Keenan Lewis will call and challenge him to face off against each other in camp practices now that they should both be starters, etc. He'll report within a week, and will be signed long term within a week or two after that. He'll get only a little bit more total dollars than Brown got, but the major difference with be a signing bonus that is likely twice what Brown got, and total guaranteed dollars (via roster bonuses and other creative provisions) may be nearly triple what Brown got.

    Ruth, for the first time in memory you have let me down ... I thought for SURE you were going to have a picture of Dudley Do-right or some Canadian Mountie to follow that phrase!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Wallace will sign an extension by the time camp breaks!!! He will get somewhere between Antonio Brown's contract and Desean Jackson's contract number wise. Somewhere in the vicinity of 5 years 47 million with 20 guaranteed. I think we are all really over-reacting to this situation. The kid is special and deserves to be paid that way. The Steelers will get their man because they always do. They will figure out a way to make it right for everyone all the way around. There is a stand-off right now but it will be resolved and by the time Denver rolls around on the calendar we will have all forgotten about this whole situation. Wallace has too many reasons not to sign an extension with the Steelers than to play hardball forever. Roethlisberger, Wallace, and Brown will make for a very potent passing game for years to come!!!

    OR

    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.



    Good work fellas, saved me from doing all the typing.
    I really think these are the only logical options.

    I sure do hope this is how it all plays out...
