Hall of Famer
Are you trying to say Wallace wasn't productive for us? That's just crazy. The guy was money for us except for the last year. Granted, that year he phoned it in but other than that he was one of the most feared receivers in the game. Didn't he and Ben combine for the most plays over 40 yards ... more than any other team for his 1st 3 years. Didn't people say he couldn't replace Stonio and then he had a fantastic 2nd year?

That is the reason the Dolphins spent all that loot on him. It's not like they put on a blindfold and threw a dart at a board with the names of FA's on it. The guy was pretty sweet for us and to my knowledge, never said a bad word about the Steelers.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown is a second-team All-Pro selection by the Associated Press. Brown is a second-team selection along with the Bengals A.J. Green and Broncos Demaryius Thomas. The first-team selections were the Lions Calvin Johnson and Browns receiver Josh Gordon.
Brown, the Steelers 2013 MVP and a Pro Bowl selection as a receiver and punt returner, is the only Steelers’ player to be selected to the team.
Brown, who won the MVP award twice in his four seasons, finished the 2013 season with 1,499 receiving yards, a Steelers single season record.
I agree with Sugar. Wallace was a good, occasionally great talent for the Steelers and never caused an issue off the field or said anything distasteful about the team. While I'm certainly glad the Steelers didn't overpay for him; I can't find fault in a young man signing a contract with a another team that is generational, life changing money. Good for him. The market spoke and he answered appropriately.
