This comes amid speculation from a Sacramento Bee report that Wallace informed the San Francisco 49ers, upon an inquiry about the kind of contract he's looking for, he wanted a deal similar to Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerld, which was reportedly eight years, and $ 120 million.

Wallace implied the information was false via Twitter:

But that's neither here nor there. Other teams have until April 20 to sign Wallace and other restricted free agents to an offer sheet.

The lack of a long-term deal for Wallace is possibly the reason why the Steelers have not signed any of their free agents, particularly WR Jerricho Cotchery or even RB Mewelde Moore.
