Default Steelers won't tag Mike Wallace

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/76...ce-source-says

Instead, they'll place a first-round tender on him. Which means a team can sign him to an offer sheet, and if Pittsburgh chooses not to match, they'll lose Wallace but get that team's latest first-round pick. Keep in mind Pittsburgh is over the cap. Or very close to it if they are somehow under.

If this report is true (and it probably is), how on earth does Wallace stay with Pittsburgh? 49ers, Bengals, Browns, Ravens, Texans... why not "draft" Wallace in the first round and sign him to a long-term deal? Unless he doesn't sign any offer sheets, he's as good as gone... right? The only question is to who? 49ers have some cap space...

I'm guessing he is on his way out. I'm thinking the Patriots get him since they have two first rounders to play with. Hopefully, if he doesn't re-sign with Pitt, he goes to the 49ers.

Well, in the Browns case, they give up the original pick correct? So the #4? I don't want the Steelers to have that. They do well enough with late round picks every year as it is...

For teams wanting a receiver, Wallace is a much better option than a guy like Wright, Jeffery, or Sanu that you would get witha mid-to-late first round pick. Pittsburgh says that after all their finagling with contracts, they'll be able to match offers on him. But not if teams are smart. Front load that contract. Guarantee him $15 million if he makes the opening day roster.

The last two teams I want to see have Mike Wallace are the Steelers and the Patriots.

The only reason I don't want to see him on the Pats is just because that would just be unfair. Even though it would probably be his best fit.

Atleast you guys sign some big names that give you a smidge of hope from time to time. Our last big name FA signing was a washed up Alge Crumpler.

They can't afford a franchise tag, but probably could afford whatever offer sheet gets sent up. I think people overestimate that a team is willing to spend a 1st round pick and 8-9 mill a year on Wallace.

Also, I know the "rule" is the team must give up their own pick in the round. But, is that set in stone, or is it the same as the frachise tag requiring two first round picks?

It is set in stone in the new CBA.

As someone said, whatever team decides to make an offer should just load up the guaranteed money for this year and dick over the steelers.

Yup. And then if Wallace is disappearing he's a cheap(ish) cut in the following years of the frontloaded contract.

If Wallace goes, (and it pains me to say this) i hope he lands with the Pats. I would love to see Wallace continue catching bombs and having a top-tier career. If he stays in Pittsburgh, or goes to NE, that will happen. If he lands with the 49ers, he will fade into mediocrity pretty fast.

Two teams that intrigue me are Miami and Houston. If Miami is able to get a QB in free agency, they won't have to use their first round pick to draft one. If Flynn (who I am assuming they would get) is actually a good player, that offense will be awesome with him throwing to Marshall and Wallace.

Houston is also an interesting landing spot. They don't have any real pressing needs. Lining up Wallace across from Andre Johnson would just be unfair. Before Schaub was injured, you could make a case that they were the favorites to come out of the AFC.

I'll make a prediction. If Wallace leaves Pittsburgh, the team he goes to will go to the Super Bowl. The top five favorites being Houston, Baltimore, New England, San Francisco, and Chicago.

What do you say to that, Shane? What's the franchise # for WRs (ballpark)?

I just don't see how the Steelers couldn't tag him and negotiate if they plan to keep him.

By tendering him, they are letting another team negotiate for them. That's scary... and I'd think a team would be willing to pay him a nice amount - he's proven to be one of the top receivers in the NFL.

I'm just trying to envision a scenario in which the Steelers do indeed keep him, but I can't. Paint that picture for me please.

You are letting a team make an offer, but you also get a 1st round pick out of it.

Last year, tender for VJax was between 10 and 11 million dollars.


Scenarios where he stays a Steelers:

1. No one offers him a deal

2. He's offered a deal for less than 10 mil. a year.


Steelers can get 10 mill by:

Hines Ward (about 3 mill)
Casey Hampton (about 3 mill)
Aaron Smith (about 2 mill)
Chris Kem. (about 3 mill)

That's 11, and a another restructure or 2 gives them enough for draft picks.
