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.”
