Colbert Says Steelers Won’t Reduce Wallace Offer

Kevin Colbert, Steelers GM says he’s not planning to cut the team’s offer to wide receiver Mike Wallace.

Wallace, a restricted free agent who hasn’t signed his contract tender offer of one-year, $ 2.742 million because he wants a long-term deal, isn’t working out with the team or guaranteed he’ll report to training camp.

Even so, Wallace won’t be docked by the team, which has a mechanism at its disposal granted by the CBA to cut his 2012 salary to $ 577,500, which is 110 percent of his 2011 base salary.

“That’s never been an intention of ours,” said Colbert, appearing on WXDX-FM in Pittsburgh. “When we tendered Mike at that amount we did, the compensation through the tender, we really had no issue with that whatsoever because he is deserving of that.”

If Wallace does hold out, he’d have to report before the 11th game of the regular season to earn an accrued season toward free agency. He’s reportedly seeking a deal with a value of at least $ 12 million per season.

Report: Steelers won’t reduce Mike Wallace’s tender

Today is the only day that the Pittsburgh Steelers can reduce wide receiver Mike Wallace’s restricted free agent tender from $ 2.72 million to $ 577,000.
According to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the Steelers have already decided to not slash a large chunk of Wallace’s salary for 2012, even though he still hasn’t signed his tender.
“That’s never been an intention of ours,” Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert told 105.9 The X’s Mark Madden yesterday, per the Tribune-Review. “When we tendered Mike at the amount we did, the compensation through that tender, we really had no issue with that whatsoever because he is deserving of that.”
Coltbert made it clear that they want Wallace to sign a long-term deal with the Steelers.
“We want him to get a long-term deal that he deserves and I am real confident that we will be able to do that because when both sides want the same thing, it is only a matter of time,” Colbert said.
The problem is that ...

Steelers can, apparently won’t, reduce Wallace’s tender today

Maybe NFL owners aren’t are ruthless as they seem. With the labor deal giving the Steelers the ability on June 15 to remove receiver Mike Wallace’s $ 2.7 million restricted free agency tender and replace it with an offer of $ 577,500 for one year of football, the Steelers by all signs and indications won’t do it.…

Ben Roethlisberger Won’t Change His Style of Play in 2012

There’s been a ton of talk from inside the Steelers and out about QB Ben Roethlisberger changing his style of play in 2012 so he won’t take as many hits as he has in the past.

The QB went down 40 times last season, most in the AFC, and while sometimes extending plays works, many feel that Big Ben needs to make decisions quicker to avoid injury.

Ben seems to think differently, as he said on Wednesday that he’s not going to change the way he plays for anyone, including new OC Todd Haley.

“I’m not going to change my game,” Roethlisberger said. “Coach can do what he wants to add protection and do things like that. I’m going to play the game the way I know how. It’s worked OK for me so far.”

Roethlisberger has gone down 261 times since 2006, and last season the Steelers season basically was lost after he got hurt against Cleveland on a Thursday night in early December.

The team drafted linemen to keep him upright this season, and now it’s up to Ben to do his part. Just don’t expect a whole lot different from him.

“I don’t think there is this big revelation like I need to do this and do that,” Roethlisberger said. “It’s ‘don’t take hits,’ but I don’t know how to do that.”

Haley has already said he won’t be trying to stop Ben from throwing on the run, and he will not do a lot to change what Roethlisberger already does well.

“It’s one of the best things he does, and it’s what separates him from all the other guys in the league for the most part,” Haley said. “So you don’t want to take that great ability away from him.”

Past Dominance Of Heath Miller Inside Red-zone Won’t Be Ignored By Todd Haley

When Todd Haley was introduced as the new offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers back in early February, one of the first Steelers players that he mentioned by name during his introductory press conference was tight end Heath Miller. Haley said at that time that Miller is one of his favorite players that he has studied and prepared for during his coaching career. That is pretty high praise for Miller and well deserved as well.

Miller is a consummate professional and one of, if not the best, well rounded tight ends currently in the league. Heading into the 2012 season it appears that Read more [...]

Steelers Mike Wallace won’t sign tender “until he has to”

Mike Wallace, the biggest deep threat in football today has dug his heels in the sand and has told sources within the Steelers camp that he won’t sign his first-round tender “until he has to.” Posturing aside, Mike Wallace and those that are advising him might want to get together and have a little pow-wow.
Wallace’s entire game up until now has circled around his speed, his speed and well his speed. The Steelers have Antonio Brown on the roster for the serious route running.
New OC Todd Haley has not historically been inclined to chuck the ball deep with any kind of admirable frequency. He’s also a fire-breathing play caller that most likely already has Wallace on the wrong side of his temperament.
Wallace like Randy Moss before him is far from a one-trick pony but that is his primary connection to the team and most importantly QB Ben Roethlisberger.
Holding out right now during the conditioning part of the voluntary program is not that serious. Wa...

Report: Mike Wallace Told ‘Some’ in Steelers Organization He Won’t Sign Until He Has To


*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on ESPN Radio as well as his own tweet Sunday morning Steelers WR Mike Wallace indicated to more than one person within the Steelers organization he won't sign his tender offer from the Steelers "until he has to."

This isn't exactly surprising (we mentioned the likelihood of him not signing it for a while). He has until June 15 to sign his tender before the Steelers can reduce the one-year contract from $ 2.7 million to $ 577,500.

The report suggests, then, Wallace would wait until then to sign it, and it's really nothing more than a negotiating tactic. If he signed the tender now, the Steelers wouldn't have any particular reason on the surface to negotiate any further. In other words, if Wallace wants more than $ 2.7 million this season, it's not in his best interest to lock himself in now, when he still has roughly two months to continue to work toward a long-term deal - something both sides have said they want.

If he holds true to that, it would mean he wouldn't be under contract during the Steelers' designated Organized Team Activities - OTAs - which go from May 22 to June 14. It isn't likely he would attend these voluntary activities if he isn't under contract.

How big of a deal it will be for him to not be in attendance isn't clear, though. Some players won't attend even if they are under contract. Top to bottom, it's really just Wallace hanging onto a reasonable and valid bargaining chip.

It'd be a different story if he was talking about missing training camp, which begins in late July.
