Steelers WR Antonio Brown Is Valued More Than WR Mike Wallace

According to Sports Illustrated Peter King, the Steelers value WR Antonio Brown more than WR Mike Wallace.

King’s source told him that “They’d rather pay Brown in 2013 than Wallace this year,” and that “Wallace had better not overplay his hand.” King notes that “in the Steelers’ eyes, he did,” so the Steelers offered Brown the same six-year, $42.5 million contract that Wallace rejected.

Browns emergence last season obviously convinced the Steelers that Brown could be an important part of their offense moving forward.  If Wallace does not sign his restricted tender and holds out past week 6, he will lose an accumulated year which means that he will be a restricted free agent again after the season.
