According to Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the Steelers are still looking to sign wide receiver Mike Wallace to a long-term deal.
“The sooner the better as far as we’re concerned but there’s two parties to it,” said team president Art Rooney II, per the Tribune-Review. “We’ll have to see what we agree on so I don’t want to put any particular time frame on it or restrictions on it because these things take time and I wouldn’t want to box myself in on it.”
The Steelers have offered Wallace a one-year $2.75 million deal, which is the highest tender a team can give to a restricted free agent. He’ll become an unrestricted free agent next year at this time.
“We stay in constant touch with him and his representatives,” Rooney said.
Indications are that Wallace is looking for more money then what Larry Fitzgerald got from the Arizona Cardinals. Which was an eight-year $120 million contract.
If Wallace wants that much money he’s going to have to prove he’s better than Fitzgerald, which he’s not.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
