First time holdout, long time receiver Mike Wallace looks to end his holdout this weekend and report to the Pittsburgh Steelers according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Wallace is expected to sign his $2.7 million tender as he returns to the Steelers following Saturday’s preseason game in Buffalo.
As of now Wallace is expected to be apart of the Steelers’ regular season opener against the Denver Broncos, but that is subject to change. Wallace who missed all of the Steelers’ offseason workouts, mini-camps, and training camp would need to prove that he understands the new playbook and is in playing shape.
Wallace had been given the new offensive playbook earlier in the offseason as a sign of good faith while he and the Steelers were in the middle of contract negotiations. Reports have said that he has been working out regularly and learning the new offense via the playbook they had given him earlier. While the Steelers had suspended talk of a new contract with Wallace, they did go and re-sign wide receiver Antonio Brown to a new deal. For what it is worth, the Steelers could turn around and franchise Wallace again next year, but chances are they wouldn’t want a repeat of what happen this year.
