Report: Wallace to report to Steelers before Week 1
Pittsburgh Steelers disgruntled wide receiver Mike Wallace is expected to report to the team before the regular season begins, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
This is good news for a Steelers team that was headed towards an opening week game without a No.1 receiver. Wallace, a restricted free agent, has been holding out of training camp and the preseason in the hopes of coercing the Steelers into agreeing on a long-term contract.
The Steelers have not budged, and they have remained adamant that they will not give Wallace the kind of contract that he is looking for. Wallace's return would mean signing the one-year, $2.742 million tender.
Wallace led all Steelers receivers last season in yards and touchdowns. In 16 games, the 26-year-old posted 1,193 receiving yards and eight touchdowns on 72 receptions.
