The Steelers appear to be getting their salary cap under control and it’s looking like they’re not going to lose Mike Wallace.
That’s a good thing.
He’s the most dangerous deep threat in the NFL.
At least he was for the first half of the season.
He only averaged over 14 yards per catch in a game once in the last nine games and when the season was over, he averaged 1/2 yard per catch more than Antonio Brown.
I think Brown has actually become the Steelers’ most dangerous offensive threat, but he would become a lot less dangerous if Wallace disappeared.
If the Steelers pay Wallace the big bucks this year, Brown will be asking for just as much at this time next year when he becomes a restricted free agent.
If I had to choose between the two, I would take Brown, but the Steelers’ chances of winning are greatly diminished with either of them out of their lineup.
