    The Steelers have 7 rings. Other teams spend too much on receivers and go nowhere.

    Arizona went to th SB with Fitz and Boldin.
    Fitz got his payday, lesser paid Boldin moved on and got a ring because the Ravens are balanced and not so stupid to overpay a single receiver.

    When was the last time that a elite paid receiver was on a team that won a SB?

    Some dumb team will sign Wallace for way more than he is worth.

    What he said.

    How does KC justify a top 5 WR salary to a guy ranked 47th in yards, 51st in receptions, and 82nd in receiving TDs??....owners are as stupid as some of the players they complain about....

    no ovi.

    your argument was wallace wasn't worth what he thought he was. Well guess what? He is!

    then you were fond of saying he should have just taken what the the steelers offered because you deemed it fair while having no idea of the guaranteed money. Ludicrous!

    mike wallace is a business. He produced big time numbers and he is going to get a bigtime payday. Its not his fault the steelers are cash strapped. I guess you like seeing highly productive players walk out the door in their 20s, so you can puff out your cheast and claim we showed him.

    laughable.

    No he isn't worth it. He may get it but he isn't worth it. He is a less than complete product that does one thing good. If he gets his money fine, hope he invests well because his career will be over with the first leg injury he gets.
    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!

    New team for Mike Wallace by the weekend?

    March 6th, 2013
    Mark Kaboly | Tribune-Review



    Even though free agency doesn’t start until 4 p.m. March 12, we very well could find out where Steelers free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace will land by this weekend.

    The NFL added a three-day tampering window back in October that permits players, teams and agents to talk to one another before a potential free agent’s contract is up.

    Now, it’s not like these meetings haven’t taken place in past years, but this year it will actually be legal under the new terms set forth by the NFL.

    So, it is very possible that we could hear something about Wallace and where he will sign not long after 4 p.m. on Saturday even though it won’t become official until the beginning of the new football year March 12.

    Speaking of Wallace, with the signing of Kansas City wide receiver Dwayne Bowe to a 5-year, $56 million deal the other day and when you take in account that Vincent Jackson got a deal just like that last year, look for Wallace to at least get the 5-years and $56 million (likely more) when he signs.

    That might sound crazy to you, but not to former NFL executive Bill Polian.

    Polian, who is most known for with his days as Buffalo’s GM during their first three Super Bowls and president of the Colts during the Peyton Manning era, thinks Wallace fits perfectly into the mold of what a high-priced free agent looks like.

    ” He is productive. He has great speed, which is always something that is desirable in a receiver,” Polian said. ” He falls within the reasonable age parameters and he hasn’t had a high history of injury When you look at all of the things that you use to try to decide whether or not you want to pursue a player, he checks every box with few question marks.”

    Polian said there aren’t many red flags at all when it comes to Wallace.

    “He’s a guy that most people will feel is pretty desirable but, again only the market will tell,” Polian said. ” This is in many ways like an IPO. There is a lot of discussion, there is a lot of analysis, but only the market will tell you whether it’s going to go or not.”

    And just like the majority of IPOs, there is the inevitable drop in value and disappointment after the hype. .... Facebook ring a bell?
