Steelers Possibly Moving On From Mike Wallace

Although nothing has been made official, the Mike Wallace era in Pittsburgh may be coming to an end very soon. After the Steelers broke off negotiation talks with him on Wednesday, they then decided to give Antonio Brown the money they had designated for Wallace which was in the neighborhood of $42.5 million over the next five years.

So now, where does that leave Wallace? Possibly looking for a new home, according to NFL.com:

Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote that we should "not be surprised" if the Steelers trade Wallace. They no longer believe they can sign him to a long-term deal, Dulac wrote. Ed Bouchette of the same paper believes the Steelers won't sign Wallace.
