Not at his age. For one its more like $1.5 of his $2.7M
The magic of investment's past is not the same. You and I may be able to make piles of money starting with that amount, but not your average intelligence football player. And by his maneuvers, he has shown less than average intelligence.
He's probably already spent half a million of it on his agent, financial adviser and the local nude bar girl.

You could live a very comfortable life on $100K per year without a job...

Something seems different with Mike Wallace
by Mark Kaboly
Wide receiver Mike Wallace, or the self-proclaimed "Fast Money" member of the "Young Money Crew" likely won't get his "Big" money from the Steelers. Wallace and the Steelers have until approximately 3 p.m. Saturday to sign a long-term deal, or Wallace will play the final year of his contract without any assurances for the future. Maybe that's why Wallace has seemed different in the locker room ever since his return last week. Usually, Wallace is engaging with his teammates, as well as the media. This year, he doesn't appear to be interested in flashing that infectious smile and outgoing personality -- sort of like he has other things on his mind. Now, it's early, but could this be a precursor of things to come especially if Wallace and the Steelers don't get a deal done within the next few days? If a deal doesn't get done, it is going to be interesting to see if Wallace will be able to let that not affect him.

Hard as it would be to believe, maybe Mike actually thought he was going to get Fitzgerald-type money.

Yeah, maybe he is busy trying to cram 7 months worth of OTA's, minicamps, training camp, etc. into 7 days, so he doesn't have much time to goof around with teammates and media right now...just a thought.

This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.
