    They have the worst QBs, top to bottom, as any team in the NFL. Who is gonna get him the ball? I think the Skins are the most likely.

    If this thread has shown anything, there are a number of teams that could make a play for Wallace, who could have a robust market. If the Steelers can clear the cap space, I would still like to see them franchise and trade him. If you didn't get a first last year, you won't get one this year, but maybe you get a second or a third? If you don't get a trade offer you like, you can anticipate that he'll hold out again and you can pull the tag.

    Franchise and trade would be great, but where are you going to get the space?

    Factor in for Restricted Free Agents, Lewis, and the rookie salary pool you have to set aside.

    All this in addition to being 12 million over the cap already and there is no way to clear enough room to franchise Wallace for a trade.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Kevin Kolb is solid... we forget him cuz of the injuries.. He'll be back, starting.

    Any team that has a good QB, mike will help and probably do well, but if he goes somewhere with a lousy QB he'll ride into the sunset and we won't hear much about him.

    It would be next to impossible, I agree. That was more of a wish than a serious thought...

    It's very unlikely the Steelers will have any money at all to sign FA's. It's going to be a challenge just for them to sign their own and get cap compliant.
    The draft is our only option at this point, our hope is the picks we choose can contribute to the team, and possibly get a starter or two in the near future.

    yep... he will definitely have some big catches but you will see him disappear and disappoint in games as well. He isn't worth the money IMO.

    It is what it is with this because it's all about money for Wallace and he's welcomed to it. We don't have a corner that can cover him, a front office that can pay him or a quarterback that can get him the ball or an OC that has that type of pass game in mind.

    I'd like to keep Wallace but I have to say, no one vanishes quicker than Wallace in the big games. We've won championship games without him and that's how I see it.
    If you "never thought the deep ball was Bens strong point", then you simply haven't been paying attention too well. Ben's career YPA is among the top current QB's in the game.
