The first time Steelers fans and opponents will see Mike Wallace on the field will be in Denver for the September 9th opener vs Peyton Manning and the Broncos.
Wallace is expected to come in and ink his $2.742 million tender by Monday, and if/when that happens, he will have to sit out three days under the NFL labor agreement.
That will mean he wouldn’t be ready to roll for the teams final preseason game vs the Panthers August 30th.
QB Ben Roethlisberger said that he expects Wallace to be just fine once he gets into practice with the Steelers.
“I talked to him today. He’s excited. We’re excited,” Roethlisberger said Wednesday. “He’s been working, and he’s been working not just on his conditioning and strength but working through the offense. If he’s been putting the work in he’s telling me he’s been doing, he’ll be fine.”
