Mike Wallace Looking to Sit Out of Training Camp to Get His Deal

Even though we reported last Thursday that the Steelers will most likely be able to keep Mike Wallace, they may be without him for much of the off-season.

According to Adam Schefter, the Steelers wide receiver is prepared to sit out of off-season workouts along with training camp unless if he gets his contract. Wallace won’t sign unless if he has to:

Wallace told some within the Steelers organization that he does not plan to sign his first-round tender “until he has to,” according to a source. This means that Wallace could wind up holding out for some or all of training camp.

Wallace has until June 15th to sign the $2.7 million first-round tender until it goes down to $577,500, in which he is unhappy with.

Wallace had a career season last year, having 72 catches for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns.
