With the Steelers not planning to use the franchise tag on receiver Mike Wallace or any other player, Wallace will go to the highest bidder. With the Steelers not inclined or able to be the highest bidder for any player, Wallace will go somewhere other than Pittsburgh.

Andrew Luck isn’t the only NFL rookie who has been kept out of action by a skewed school calendar. Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin, who played college football at Stanford with Luck, finally has received clearance to make the move from Palo Alto to South Beach. It’ll take some getting used to. “I was running back…
Predicting draft day trades is next to impossible, but it is fun to look at what we might deem the Pittsburgh Steelers draft board might look like along with perceived needs to speculate what trades could possibly take place.
While Jeremy Hritz has already wondered if the Steelers will trade out of first round completely, I personally think they will stay put there if I had to lay some money down on it. The second round though is where I believe the best shot of move down and out could happen for the Steelers.
Judging by where I personally have players graded that coincide with needs the Read more [...]

So why are the Dolphins having a hard time luring free agents to South Beach? Steelers safety Ryan Clark has a theory. After Clark congratulated quarterback Matt Flynn on joining the Seahawks via Twitter, one of Clark’s followers writes that “NO ONE wants to go to the Dolphins!” Clark responds by saying, “No one! To…
Miami has announced the termination of head coach Tony Sparano, making him the second AFC head coach to lose his job today.
Chiefs coach Todd Haley was fired earlier.
Sparano started the 2011 season 0-7, but had a revival of sorts, winning three straight games in the middle of the year. The Dolphins fell back down to earth, losing two of their next three games including Sunday's 26-10 beating by Philadelphia.
Secondary coach Todd Bowles will be the Dolphins interim head coach.
Sparano, the hand-selected coach by former Dolphins Executive Vice President of Football Operations Bill Parcells, is 28-32 in four years with the Dolphins, having won the AFC East championship in 2008.
The Dolphins were 11-5 in that surprising season, one year removed from a 1-15 record. They have not finished over .500 since then.
Much like Haley's termination, the news wasn't unexpected. Sparano himself was caught on tape in the fourth quarter of the Dolphins 18-15 loss to Denver in Week 7 making mention to an assistant that they were all going to be fired after the game.
In that time, though, the Dolphins played tough and didn't appear to be problems with their coach. That trend changed recently, particularly after a less-than-inspiring performance against the Eagles in Week 14.
