Steelers receiver Mike Wallace remains unsigned as the preseason approaches its halfway point, but his teammates think he’ll be with them soon.
Emmanuel Sanders told the Beaver County Times that the guys in the Steelers’ locker room believe they’re going to be practicing with Wallace again soon.
“There’s a little buzz around the team that he’ll be coming back pretty soon,” Sanders said. “I don’t know the exact date, but it’s looking pretty good.”
Although the arrival of Wallace might mean fewer passes thrown Sanders’ way, he doesn’t see it like that. Sanders said having Wallace back is going to make Pittsburgh’s passing game better for everyone.
“There’s light at the end of the tunnel . . . for the end of training camp and for Mike coming back,” Sanders said. “The puzzle is starting to come together. It’s going to be a great thing. We all know Mike takes the top off the defense. He stretches the field with his speed. He allows me and Antonio [Brown] to get [open] underneath. We’re excited about having him back. He’s a great asset to our receiver corps, and he’s a great asset to this team.”
And he’s an asset the Steelers will finally get back soon. If the buzz at training camp is right.
