Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is right on with his report that Mike Wallace is done as a member of the Steelers.
The report read that the soon to be unrestricted free agent and the Steelers will likely part ways in March.
The Steelers gave Wallace their best offer last year, reportedly averaging $10 million annually over five years, and he turned it down.
They stopped negotiating with Wallace once camp started and he did not show up, and quickly turned their attention to Antonio Brown who signed a five-year contract for $42.5 million that included an $8.5 million signing bonus.
Essentially, Brown’s contract signaled the end of Wallace’s career in Pittsburgh.
Good for Wallace – he can take his high demands elsewhere, and do what all WR’s that leave the Steelers seem to do – fall into the abyss of the NFL.
