Mike Wallace Admits That He May Not Be Playing For The Steelers Next Season

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Mike Wallace joined Sirius NFL Radio and acknowledged the possibility that he may be playing elsewhere next season.

[Pittsburgh is] where I would like to be, but we all know that it is a business and you have certain things you have to handle,” said Wallace, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “So if I have to go elsewhere, you know Pittsburgh will always be in my heart, but I have to do what I have to do.”

The Steelers have been trying to shed payroll in attempt to get under the cap and plan to place a first-round tender on Wallace but even that may not be enough to keep him in Pittsburgh next season. Some have suggested that the Steelers are in a situation where they are essentially choosing between Wallace and Antonio Brown who will be in a similar position in near future.

Wallace mentioned that he’s been in talks with the team but said that he sees it as a business decision.

Yeah, we are talking, but I don’t know how far they are going to get right now because of the situation,” Wallace said. “I know that they are working hard trying to take care of it, but I don’t know. We’ll see.”
