Steelers Training Camp News: Negotiations With Mike Wallace Suspended

The Pittsburgh Steelers are not happy with wide receiver Mike Wallace. The Pro-Bowler has still not signed his one-year tender or a multi-year deal with the Steelers and now the team is taking some action. Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the team has suspended negotiations for a multi-year deal with Wallace until he signs his one year tender.

Wallace cannot practice at all until he signs the tender or a deal, so he stands to lose in this capacity. Head coach Mike Tomlin said that this situation is "bigger" than Wallace.

One thing that experience has taught me is that this is bigger than all of us. It's bigger than Mike, it's bigger than me, so I mean that when I say it's unfortunate for him that he's not here.

This has happened with Steelers wide receivers before. Hines Ward held out for a new deal for the first couple weeks of camp in 2005, but once he ended his holdout, he signed a four-year deal with the Steelers.
