AdamSchefter: Antonio Brown just signed a 5 year extension for $42.5mil with the Steelers.
Mike Wallace is stoked, jk.
i'm fine losing wallace if he wants more than 9 a year. he has no leverage.
we can get him on the tender this year, cause he'll show up by week one regardless. and franchise him next year.
so happy with the brown extension. that's huge.
Yeah, that Brown extension is awesome...he's basically gonna be the feature WR all season with Wallace holding out
Yeah, and the team saw he wasn't dropping his price, so they just said fuck it and are gonna call his bluff. Cause right now, he's on pace to look really bad, show up out of shape, have a shitty off-year, and go into FA with no chance of getting more than a 2yr deal. Also, since Wallace is on an RFA tender this year, they could actually franchise tag him next year, but it might be a little pricey with the deals Megatron and Fitz got.
MarkKaboly_Trib: The Steelers offered Mike Wallace very similar deal to Antonio Brown's deal. Brown accepted, Wallace was offended.
Much rather have Brown anyway. Id love for them to lock up Sanders too, just so its cheaper than when he has a bigger year
