Report: Mike Wallace says he won’t sign “until he has to”

mike-wallace Getty Images

With the period for restricted free agency movement concluded, and with no restricted free agents signing offer sheets with new teams, those who have yet to sign tender offers from their current teams must decide when and if to do so.

Steelers receiver Mike Wallace, the highest-profile restricted free agent without a contract, reportedly doesn’t plan to do so any time soon.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Wallace has told some within the organization that he doesn’t plan to accept the one-year, $2.7 million tender offer “until he has to.”

The question becomes when does he have to?

As Schefter points out, the CBA allows the Steelers on June 15 to withdraw the tender and replace it with an offer equal to 110 percent of his 2011 base salary, which for Wallace would equate to $577,000.

Still, he could hold out even longer, skipping training camp and the preseason and up to 10 weeks of the regular season.  At that point, he could sign the tender, receive the prorated base salary under the $577,000 tender (i.e., $237,000), and then become an unrestricted free agent (subject to the franchise or transition tag) in 2013.

Wallace ultimately must ask himself if it’s worth giving up more than 90 percent of the current tender in order to exert maximum leverage toward a long-term deal now — and to expose himself to minimal injury risk before putting himself in position to achieve a major payday.  The manner in which he balances these competing considerations will directly influence his assessment of the day on the calendar that equates to “until he has to.”

    THE STEELERS WILL NOT MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!

    still trying to get us to believe the sky is falling huh…

    i love these 3rd and 4th hand stories from schefter that he heard from someone who heard from someone else that some other guy told him that some guy said something.

  3. peytonsneck18 says: Apr 22, 2012 12:23 PM

    Steelers are superior to any team, cause the have spoiled recievers, where’s the Steelers clown that always get heavily medicated then gets on here talking bout Steelers are superior as if they were lords or kings

  4. elrock7 says: Apr 22, 2012 12:25 PM

    The guy must have the smarts of a mentally challenged poodle. He says he wants more dough than Fitzgerald, doesnt want to sign his tender, I hope the Steelers make him pay the price!

  5. straighcashhomie84 says: Apr 22, 2012 12:26 PM

    Wallace should take less money and sign with a contender who is set to win next year…the Vikings

  6. thingamajig says: Apr 22, 2012 12:31 PM

    Looks like he signs on June 14th.

  7. stubbyjones says: Apr 22, 2012 12:33 PM

    Of course not. He blew it already..gonna be tendered 2 years in a row and lose big time…greedy guy.

  8. DCBlueStar says: Apr 22, 2012 12:33 PM

    That’s quite a big head on your shoulders there, Mikey. Especially for a one dimensional WR who is only a deep threat. Heck, Antonio Brown is a more complete receiver than you are already.

    You are nuts asking for Larry Fitzgerald money… I’ll give you one thing… at least you didn’t ask for Calvin Johnson money…

  9. chawk12thman says: Apr 22, 2012 12:34 PM

    The day before losing next years’ free agent status is when “he has to” sign. The others are just about money. My guess is this could last a long time………………..

  14. mnesmith77 says: Apr 22, 2012 12:49 PM

    Wallace is his own worst enemy. If it had not been for the comment saying he wanted to make more than Larry Fitz he may have had some offers.

    The league is determined to stunt the Steelers’ greatness from reaching an even larger margin. While we understand this tactic, we have come to resent it. We have done well to overcome this adversity winning two SBs under this regime of manipulation. The threat the Steelers impose on the league grows annually, however.

    Nothing can keep the Steelers down. We prepare for wars while at peace, topple nations, and exterminate the populace. We’ve laid the groundwork for this game. We’ve taught lesser mortals what’s right and wrong. We will never tolerate authority over this game that is greater than our own. Rising from the sabotage attempts from the league, the Steeler Nation has decided that we will not ignore it any longer.

    After defeating the league (and the sabotage attempts in place) this one last time to earn Lombardi number seven we will cross our glory to its proper ascended path, the Steeler Football League. This league will arrive with just the Steelers in all its glory. The league will have eight teams to start. The current Steelers will be drafted to these teams equally. Players from the tainted NFL, once deemed pure and worthy, will be allowed to sign with teams via supplemental draft in order to fill roster spots. Coaches and personnel will follow the same procedures.

    There will be an overhaul of the rules that the tainted NFL uses. The idea is to bring back REAL football. Rules that make the run game relevant again. Rules that don’t overprotect the QB. Recent subtle rules will be eliminated as well. Refs will be required to have at least played football on the collegiate level.

    We provide this to the peasants because we are extremely gracious. We will be announcing our new sacrifice shrine sometime mid-august this year. We appreciate your patience. We respect that many fans want the Steelers gone because of our overwhelming dominance. We thank you for your feedback and we see your position. This is clearly the best propostion for all parties. You may all go back to river of tears, while we sail the 7 seas. Whoa.

  16. jimmyhaffa says: Apr 22, 2012 12:51 PM

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard of a dramatic receiver before. Crazy.

  17. 00otto says: Apr 22, 2012 12:54 PM

    this is kinda interesting…….do you take the 2.7M and risk getting injured…..or do you take 240K…play minimal in 6 games and get 10 mil franchise tag or sign big long term deal with at least 20mil signing bonus……..seems like there is incentive to sitting and signing autographs for 4 months

  18. icardfan says: Apr 22, 2012 12:55 PM

    Give him Larry Fitzgerald money! Please! He’s just as quality a WR and person! A dominant multi-dimensional WR better than Megatron! He’s a God! Worship him Tebow!

  19. franklamar17 says: Apr 22, 2012 12:55 PM

    Why do people bash Wallace for wanting to be paid what he is worth,I think we would all agree that he was under paid the past 2 years and we got a steal.as a steelers die hard fan ,I hope Wallace and steelers come to a agreement both sides can live with.I know brown would not be as effective without Wallace taking double coverage away from him,so I’m not going to kid my self and point out what some people may think what’s Wallace weak points in his game do justify them selves with why he should just be happy with what ever the steelers offer….

  20. mmlotus2012 says: Apr 22, 2012 12:56 PM

    GOOD!!!

    Cost “yourself” $2 Million Dollars!!!

    PAY ANTONIO BROWN INSTEAD!!! He is a T=E=A=M Player!!

    Wallace is digging a big hole that sooner or later he will have to crawl out.

  23. nightrain42 says: Apr 22, 2012 1:00 PM

    I’m ready to say good bye to this guy.

  24. agc99 says: Apr 22, 2012 1:03 PM

  27. jluns275 says: Apr 22, 2012 1:08 PM

    He thinks he’s worth Larry Fitzgerald type money?
    Really?
    Isn’t there random drug testing of NFL players?
    He should put down the pipe or he’s going to end up in the substance abuse program if he’s not careful.

  28. quittsburghstoolers says: Apr 22, 2012 1:13 PM

    Wallace will have to wait until at least 2014 to get paid.

    Those cheap-arse Stoolers are gonna wait until he signs
    his tender this year. If he has a good enough season this
    year then they will slap the franchise tag on him. After that, they may allow him to leave & go some place
    else in order to earn the kinda money he wants long term…
    unless (of course) they wanna tick him off even
    worse & franchise tag him 2 years in a row.

  29. oldbrowndawg says: Apr 22, 2012 1:13 PM

    Sure am sorry to see the Stillers having such problems. N O T !!!!!! Old creaky team can’t keep its prized veterans anymore and now their young dudes are revolting (in both senses of the word). What a SHAME! Bahahahahahaha.

  30. psmith7716 says: Apr 22, 2012 1:13 PM

    I would like to see this situation get settled. We are a better team with Wallace. He may be somewhat of a one-trick pony, but what a trick. Is there anyone faster? You can’t teach speed.

  31. pitt9292 says: Apr 22, 2012 1:14 PM

    I really thought Mike Wallace would be smarter than this. In the end if he justs takes the offer the Steelers will either take care of him or let him go get taken care of. He clearly thinks his worth is more than it is. He is good but bot Fitz good yet. Let him go and see how another org treats him. Yea they’ll give him the money then piss down his neck and never make the POffs and he will be forgotten like most when they leave the system.

  35. DonRSD says: Apr 22, 2012 1:26 PM

    my girl is a STEAL-ers fan.
    she doesnt mind. the refs are STEAL-ers fans too (ask Bill Leavy)

    funny when the STEAL-ers play the lonely seahawks or cardinals, they get every call.
    when the STEAL-ers play someone with more history, packers, they got no calls and whined like a bunch of school.

    that being said, GO BIG BLUE!!!
    ELI 4 MVP!!!

  36. bigfootballfan says: Apr 22, 2012 1:27 PM

    He’d be the instant #1 wr on approx 25 teams and the others would love to him as well. The guy is great and makes a team dangerous. He is dynamic.

    How many teams become playoff contenders with the additition of him? Several.

    There is a “since we’ve won, we don’t have to pay our guys” state of mind that I read in these comments.

    It’s even beyond that – Pitt fans are actually mad at Wallace for wanting the big payday he is worth, instead of being proud that he is a Steeler.

    Pitt may have to restructure their finances from past player contracts – that happens every now and then to the best of teams. But those are management issues, not Mike Wallace issues.

    Why be mad at Wallace for not having better timing for having a remarkable career?

    I understand being taken back when it was reported Wallace wants Larry Fitz money. Everyone was amazed at that. That’s unrealistic.

    But it’s also unrealistic to not know that this isn’t your father’s NFL. You have to pay your great players.

    I don’t get this struggle from management. Figure out a way pay the guy and sit back and enjoy him.

    He’d be hard to replace and your team is much better with him than without him.

    Hope it works out for you Pitt fans. If he were on my team, I hate to loose him too.

  37. dachozen1 says: Apr 22, 2012 1:29 PM

    I dont blame him for chasing a big BlockBuster pay and not championships. I would like to see him get his money with an organization crazy enough to give him 100 mill and the Steelers get something for him. Steelers have to many other big time players to pay him that type of money. This is not Detroit who has been bad for years or the Cardinals who only has 1 super star player. Maybe a team like the Jaguars or Cleveland will give him that type of money??

  38. carlsbadboltfan says: Apr 22, 2012 1:32 PM

    Looks like we have a Vincent Jackson situation in the making. Remember what happened two seasons ago? Jackson held out nearly all season just to make a point. He returned for the last 5-6 games.

    Same old story different player. The Steelers were looking for a receiver when they found him, they can find another!

  41. j0esixpack says: Apr 22, 2012 1:52 PM

    I think Williams is a bit of a turd as a person, but from a football standpoint, he would be better off sitting out all through camp and up til Week 10 to minimize the risk of injury and still become an UFA next year.

    He would be giving up $2 million this year to get $30 million guaranteed next year.

    If it we you or I we would do exactly the same thing. It’s just not worth risking a career ending injury for the relative chump change of $2 million now.

  42. steelerfan999 says: Apr 22, 2012 2:01 PM

    WALLACE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO SIGN AND GO OUT THIS YEAR AND HAVE A PRO BOWL/MVP YEAR IF HE WANTS BIG MONEY FROM ANY TEAM NEXT YEAR.STEELERS HAVE HIM BY THE BALLS.FIRE YOUR AGENT WALLACE,YOU AINT NO ANTONIO BROWN!!!

    If all this is true, why didn’t he get any offers? If he had any, don’t you think his agent would be trumpeting that fact all over the place for leverage?

    My mom is a Steelers fan and was panicking when they tagged him. I told her all along that Wallace wasn’t leaving, Colbert knew exactly what he was doing…and he did.

  44. grumblenflgrumble says: Apr 22, 2012 2:05 PM

    “Hey peytonsneck18 you dipstick proof read your posts before you post it. It makes you sound less dumb.”

    You should probably do the same. You’re missing punctuation as well as using a plural (“posts”) followed by a singular (“post it”). He should either (a)proofread his ‘post’ before he posts it or (b)proofread his posts before he posts ‘them’.

  45. chatham10 says: Apr 22, 2012 2:08 PM

    I do not believe this action is from Wallace, it is from his agent.

  46. realdealsteel says: Apr 22, 2012 2:15 PM

    Steelers have a system that can’t be broken. Especially by one player. Remember when Holmes was squaking?? See what we did to Holmes? He was exiled to a joke of a franchise.

    We have always been able to find wide recievers so no wide receiver can hold us hostage. If Wallace continues to cause problems, we’ll get rid of him and just get a new guy. As a matter of fact, wouldn’t shock me at all if we take another wide receiver in the 5th or 6th round just to show Wallace that he doesn’t run $hit around here.

    We are the Steelers..THE NFL’S GREATEST FRANCHISE!!

  47. 3rivs says: Apr 22, 2012 2:19 PM

    Screw Wallace. Steelers should shift all focus to extending Antonio Brown.

    franklamar17 says:

    Why do people bash Wallace for wanting to be paid what he is worth,

    ————————————————-
    Because he’s asking to be paid more than he’s worth. First, he said he wants to be paid Larry Fitzgerald money, and as a Steelers fan, even I don’t believe he’s on Larry Fitzgerald’s level personally or professionally. Second, worth is determined by the market, and 31 teams have made clear they don’t believe he’s worth the money he’s asking plus a first-round draft pick. Yet he’s still threatening to sit out the season despite currently being under contract. I’ve signed contracts where I ultimately ended up being underpaid because the work exceeded the original description. Well, guess what? I honored my contract anyway.

    I’m all for players making as much as they can. But while they’re under contract, they need to get their butts on the field. No one’s taking advantage of Wallace. He’s making me wish he’d just go away.

  59. stiller9305 says: Apr 22, 2012 4:21 PM

    Young Money will sign on June 14th and no later or his nickname will revert to Lot Less Money. The Stillers have him by the curlies so he should just play the game and wait for his big payday in 2013. The haters haven’t been right on this one yet and I don’t expect them to now.

  62. sbs9101314304043 says: Apr 22, 2012 6:42 PM

    If I am the Steelers, let him rot and turn the attention to Antonio Brown. Teams figured out how to stop him at the end of last year. I look for him to struggle this year. Hold out all you want, but the Steelers always win i these situations. Bye bye Clifford Franklin.

  63. Stiller43 says: Apr 22, 2012 6:52 PM

    Coming from a steelers fan – the guy is not an elite wr. Anything over 5-7 mil a year is overpaying.

  64. whutevr says: Apr 22, 2012 7:59 PM

    Another Steelers fan here who won’t be sad to see him not playing and end up on another team. Don’t need any greedy primadonna’s on this team. Wallace is good but not that good. And, apparently, he’s not that smart or at least his agent isn’t. He’s losing out. What leverage does he have? No one else wanted him. Looks like I’ll be throwing out my #17 cap.

  65. bigdaddystyle says: Apr 22, 2012 8:02 PM

    I’ll say it again turmoil in Pittsburg and you steel-head morons are to blind to see it. If he follows through on his threat it will effect the whole team. Rooney doesnt know how to deal with diva WR because they’ve never had any of them. Have fun looking up at the Bengals and Ravens this season

  71. steelcurtainn says: Apr 22, 2012 9:04 PM

    This is all a bunch of nonsense and drama for the offseason. Come Training camp Mike Wallace will be in uniform and ready to push the steelers right back in the superbowl. The ravens had there one chance to get to the sb and blew it. Time for the steelers to get back in it and it all starts with the draft this week.
    The steelers have at least won 2sb and lost 1 in the last 1o yrs so at least they know how to get there. Can’t say the same for the ratbirds who havent even seen a sb in 12yrs and won’t with Floppo. The raisins are gonna be be battling the bungles for 2nd this year.

  72. ridgeavenuehr says: Apr 22, 2012 9:21 PM

    Give Wallace a break-it is how you do business in the NFL. Hines Ward did the same thing a few years ago. Steelers will sign him at a good, fair contract.

  73. zonedogz says: Apr 22, 2012 9:41 PM

    First the Steelers lose to Donkeys in the AFC playoffs. Next the Flyers crush the Penguins in the NHL playoffs.

    Life is good.

  74. steel2372 says: Apr 22, 2012 9:46 PM

    I would like to see this get settled and Wallace remain a Steeler. He is going to get alot better. Speed is something that cannot be taught, but route running can. He is a good 3 years away from his prime. I think people forget this guy is still young. I just wish his agent would realize that also before he goes demanding Fitz type money. He is worth about what D Jackson’s contract was in Philly. In the end I hope he is in Pittsburgh for many years to come, but if not this franchise will still succeed.

    First, steelersaresuperiorineveryway6welookdownandlaugh isn’t a Steelers fan; he’s a guy making fun of Steelers fans.

    Second, being 5-0 rather than 6-8 in the Super Bowl just means you’ve won fewer conference championships … so you’ve been less competitive overall. I’d rather my team were winning conference championships even if they lose in the ultimate contest than sitting home watching on television. :roll:

    Sorry … that was 5-0 rather than 6-2. Don’t think my heart would have taken 8 Super Bowl losses.

    It’s sad time in Putzburgh.

    Their heavily favored hockey team got beat by the hated Flyers.

    The Pirates… well, they are still the Pirates so that means they are track to lose 100 games again.

    And the Stealers? They are old, slow, and done… not to mention, soon to be in salary cap hell.

    Oh well… cheer up yinzers. It’ll be hockey season again before you know and maybe next year the Pens won’t choke.

    @eggersthejerk …

    It’s a football blog, dimwit, and Steeler Nation’s boundaries are worldwide. Try jumping forward into the 21st century when people are watching their NFL teams on satellite and PS3 around the globe. I wouldn’t recognize the star player for the Penguins or Pirates if I sat next to him on an airplane and could care less about hockey or baseball. :roll:

    As for those old, slow, done Steelers … that’s what they said last year and we went 12-4. Dream on :D
