After the Steelers handed Antonio Brown a $42.5 million contract extension on Friday, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette tweets that he wouldn’t be surprised if the team traded WR Mike Wallace during training camp.
“Do not be surprised if Steelers trade Mike Wallace during training camp. They no longer believe they can sign him long term.”
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is also reporting that Wallace turned down a contract offer in the range of five years and $50 million. Considering Wallace is only 25 and is coming off a productive season (72 receptions, 1,193 yards, 8 TDs), one would think teams would surely come calling if the Steelers made the wide receiver available this summer.
