The Steelers could be parting ways with Mike Wallace and the blogosphere is a buzz about him coming to Baltimore. Wallace, 26-years old, is expected to leave via free agency and Ozzie Newsome has been outspoken about wanting to add another wide receiver to his arsenal.
Partnered with Torrey Smith, Wallace could turn the Ravens into a true deep passing offense. There’s only one problem.
Pittsburgh is expected to put at least a first round tender on Wallace so he won’t come cheap. In a free agent market that’s full of talent, giving up a first rounder just isn’t realistic for the Ravens.
Wes Welker, Vincent Jackson, Dwayne Bowe, Marques Colston and Mario Manningham are just a few of the other receivers hitting the market this offseason.
Look, I get wanting to help the Ravens and hurt the Steelers at the same time, but a first round pick is just too much.
