    The Steelers gifted receiver Mike Wallace is a free agent this year.

    If we go after any big name free agents receivers I would go for Mike Wallace. The Steelers are in tough spot cap wise. They will either franchise him (not likely) or try to sign to a long term deal. But with little cap space he is vulnerable to being poached by a team with more cap space. A large signing bonus could make a deal that the Steelers couldn't match. And it would weaken the Steelers team that always is ahead of us in the race for those few playoff spots.

    Now that would be a receiving trio with marshal, Wallace and Bess. That would be sick.

    What is he worth?

    I don't know, a decent amount. Man if we had the combo of Wallace and Marshall with a good QB, that would just be insanity!!

    To me you need other pieces of the puzzle before the speed receiver. Miami needs to solve the QB problem, find a free safety, right tackle and linebacker/DE so receiver is way way down the priority list this season.

    Now with that being said if the cards fell right hell yeah I would welcome the man with open arms.

    yes he is restricted. But I give up our 1st round pick for him anyday. You have to have receivers in this league to be in it at the end. The good teams have 3-4. We only have 2. Moore may endup being the QB we need with the right receivers and a whole offseason program.

    Here are the details of the Steelers situation with him.

    Placing only the tender on Wallace would leave Pittsburgh open to being poached for its top wideout by teams willing to fork over a long-term contract and a first-round draft pick. One such club could be the division-rival Ravens, who draft 29th overall. The cap-strapped Steelers may see the monetary difference between the tender ($2.742 million) and tag ($9.6 million) as worth the risk.

    If this was 2008.

    Very good chance Manning is done and Moss is done.

    I would give them a first if they have problems giving him a deal. He is proven and he would fit perfect next to Marshall

    WR is NOT the place we need to be giving things up for this year. A good QB could produce significant numbers with the corps we have......so QB is where we need to be giving things up, and a top notch OLineman.

    Nothing. He isn't leaving Pittsburgh just like Brees isn't leaving New Orleans

    Haha really? It's pretty ridiculous to say that. Mike Wallace's chances of leaving Pittsburgh are wayyyy more then the chances of Brees leaving New Orleans, it's not even close.

    Here's why we can get him.

    The Steelers salary for 2012 is ALREADY $149,000,000. The cap is gonna be about $125,000,000. They also have to have $5,000,000 for rookies. So they are actually about $30,000,000 over the cap. Not a chance in hell they keep everyone.

    Wallace would be nice but not realistic. The Steelers are gonna cut a bunch of old and injured Players and will be able to get under the cap without hurting the team. Why bother signing a player to an offer sheet when the Steelers can just match it anyway???

    The Steelers are letting Ward go and have absolutely no intention of doing the same with Wallace. He will, with out a doubt, be wearing black and gold next year.
