At this stage, there is no indication that any team will sign Wallace to an offer sheet. Here are the best reasons we can come up with:


He's too expensive:

There have been reports Wallace wants more than $100 million in a contract. He wants Larry Fitzgerald money. If that's true, the cost of the contract, plus a first-round draft pick, could make him too expensive.

He's not versatile:

Wallace doesn't fit every offense. He doesn't go over the middle or help you on special teams like DeSean Jackson. There is some question about his ability to transfer to many offensive systems. Antonio Brown is the far more versatile receiver. Wallace, you could argue, is a one-trick pony. Of course, it's a pretty nifty trick.

That's way too expensive. Pittsburgh can keep him at that price.

I agree. Let Pitt over pay for his one trick pony skill.

The funny thing is Pitts really can't afford what he is asking for either.
