“Some Steelers fans are mad at Mike Wallace for holding out, but the people who know this team best believe he will be in camp around mid-August. I agree,” wrote Kirwan. “Wallace will not win his toe-to-toe battle with the Rooneys for a big contract.”
Like Kirwan wrote, Wallace will not win the contract negotiations with the Steelers ownership. Antonio Brown‘s new contract extension with the team likely means Wallace will not be with the Steelers long term. Wallace’s only option now is to sign his restricted free agent tender.
