Mike Wallace Officially Reports To Pittsburgh Steelers

The holdout of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace officially ended Tuesday, as multiple media outlets are reporting Wallace is at the team's practice facility. The news concludes a month-long holdout from Wallace, who's expected to sign a restricted free-agent tender for approximately $2.7 million.

Because of his late arrival, Wallace will not be able to play in Pittsburgh's final preseason game on Thursday, and will go into the Steelers' regular-season opener against the Denver Broncos, Sept. 9, without any on-the-field practice.

Despite the short time to prepare, the return of the 2011 Pro Bowler will be a welcomed sight for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who's been without his No. 1 receiving option. Last season, Wallace caught 73 passes for 1,193 receiving yards and eight touchdowns.
