Steelers Unlikely To Sign WR Mike Wallace To A Long-Term Deal Now
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, there won’t be a contract extension for Steelers WR Mike Wallace now that they’ve signed Antonio Brown to a five-year deal worth $42.5 million. Pittsburgh has limited cap space to work with next year, so even the franchise tag is a bit of a question mark at this point in time. Wallace still needs another NFL season to qualify for unrestricted free agency, so it seems likely that his holdout will end when it has to and he’ll ultimately sign his restricted tender worth $2.742 million. There’s a chance that the Steelers could actually trade him before the start of the season, but that’s purely speculative.

If he does that Im fairly sure he'd lose a year of "eligibility" as far as hitting the market as a UFA.
Those who would give up essential freedoms for temporary safety deserve neither freedom nor safety
