    Oh yeah, that's not even close. This guy does like 1 to 2 things that a top 10 WR does. He's completely useless in every other area. Talk about flushing money down the toilet if we sign him at that price.
    If we sign him, people will be complaining halfway through the year about why he isn't scoring TD's (like he did in Pitt).

    He's in the midst of a really disappointing, unproductive 24-game stretch - he's had only 2 100-yd games in that span. In the last 8 games of 2011: 29catches for 393yds and 3tds; followed up in their playoff game catching 3 balls (on 10 targets) for 26yds. And 2012 was easily his worst statistical year, which happened to come in his only season in a west-coast offense. He struggled in a system similar to ours. He's not a chain mover in this offense: in 2012 only 49% of his catches got 1st-downs (down from 71+% in each of his prior years). Over the last season and a half, he has just been unreliable. Steeler fans can't wait to be rid of him. I'd much prefer a versatile, tougher go-to guy on 3rd downs - Jennings.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...ers-wr-in-2013
    But in his WORST statistical year he put up better numbers than ALL OF OUR RECEIVERS and more TD's than all of them combined. His worst statistical season 64 catches 836 yards and 8 TD was not that far off from Jennings BEST season 80-1292-9TD last year Jennings stats were 36-366-4 and if you want to say yea but he was hurt then the year before that his stats were 67-949-9 which isn't that much better than Wallace's "Down Year" so give me a 26 year old TD playmaker over a 30 year old playmaker. Just saying.

    Because they can't afford him now! Why not bring up the FACT they they offered him 55mil last year that he declined. If they thought he was not worth it they wouldn't have offered it. Just saying.

However, it has to be for a mutually beneficial deal.
    Its a team game. And Vincent Jackson had 72 catches 1384 yards and TD for TB last year, Those numbers are worth every dime he got paid.

    Absolutely correct. People are sleeping on Stedman Bailey...i see him and Steve Smith of the Panthers comes immediately to mind. Has that South Florida swagger to him too..

    if we had vincent jackson last year we would have definitely gotten a wild card birth, easily ten wins.

    Look at how the teams that go to and WIN the superbowl deal with free agency and WR's.

    This^^


    We are not one receiver away from a championship.... We have a TON of holes on our team and throwing 60+Mill at one player is not plausible. It's outright ridiculous.


    Look at the Champs of the past decade or so. Tell me 1 team that has went and paid top dollar for 1 receiver? Let me save you the time and research to tell you that there isn't a championship team that has done that... You build through the draft and you use free agency to pick up affordable pieces to fill some depth and maybe a starter or 2, IF they fit.
    2014 Mock Draft

    1. Zack Martin - OT/OG - Notre Dame
    2. Chris Borland - ILB - Wisconsin
    3. C.J. Fiedeorowicz - TE - Iowa
    4. Trai Turner - OG - LSU
    5. Brandon Thomas - OT/OG - Clemson
    6. Storm Johnson - RB - South Florida
    7. Calvin Barnett - DT - Oklahoma State

    They have to spend the money somewhere and unfortunately ireland does not have the time to rely on draft picks to make the playoffs next year. He'll sign Wallace or the next best thing. Guaranteed

    No team is going to pay such a high salary. I do care how good the guy is, $60,000,000 dollars is ridiculously. Mike Wallace will get tons of money for sure but 60 million? Nah. Wake up Mike and smell some reality. You're asking too high a price.

    Now it's 60 million for how many years? - - >
