    How does KC locking up their #1 WR for Alex Smith prove Wallace will get a huge pay day? I could see if this was a new team but all this really proves is KC loves Bowe and there is one less team on the market looking for a high profile WR.

    I think Wallace my get a little more than we offered but not much.

    Most rich owners are greedy sons of biotches. They only want things to go one way: They get richer and F everyone else. They will continue to go that way until fans stop showing up. Only then will they agree to lower ticket prices. The Jags never bothered to fix their defunct drinking fountains but would gladly sell you $5 bottles of water in the oppressive heat. Why would Weaver care; he was making tons of money on selling bottled water. THAT is the mentality of NFL owners.

    Well, this thread got derailed quick.

    Wallace will get paid. Other teams will value what he brings more than the Steelers.

    Yet to be determined who is making the right decision, but unlike popular belief, Chadman is not convinced the Steelers got it right.

    Wow. You don't think agents use other contracts as a basis for their demands? Do you think Bowe is a better receiver than Wallace? Bowe getting Vjax money sets the table for Wallace to ask the same. No one in their right mind thinks Bowe is a better receiver than Wallace.

    Why do you think Flacco demanded to be paid 100,000 year a more than Drew Brees? Other contracts for the same position sets the market for other players at that position.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    I have no idea if Bowe is better... I know Wallace is faster.

    Flacco and Bowe resigned with their teams... this doesnt set the market IMO. I think the first WR to sign with a new team will set the market.

    disagree.

    of course bowes contract will be used by wallaces agent. It won't matter at all just because bowe resigned with KC.

    Wallace will get his money, in the ballpark of what Jackson and Bowe received. How much was the difference between Wallace and Jackson in the first place. Don't know if its accurate but the Steelers offered 10 mill a year so the difference was what about 5 mill? If so I wonder if the Steelers proposed an incentive laden deal to make up the difference in what he was asking and what they were offering.

    At any rate, I might be a loner here but IMO Wallace is a playmaker, wished we could of signed him. The Steelers might have rushed to judgement by signing Brown, instead they closed the door on any possibility of retaining Mike.

    VJAx set the market rate, Bowe added a couple bucks to it, and Wallace will do the same to the contract Bowe got. That's the way the league works. We always think teams overpay for everyone, but 3 years down the road that overpaid contract isn't even top 10 anymore.
