    They tried to re-sign him. They offered him $55 million.

    This is how I feel. I don't care if we overpay for someone as long as he performs at his own best level.

    I honestly don't care if we sign any major FA's. We have a horrific track record with FA's. And the percentages get worse the more we pay.

    I know we need WR help, I'd rather sign Hartline, get Jennings and draft our future WR1. At least Jennings is a known commodity who knows the system. He's not a "me" player. Wallace seems like a disaster waiting to happen.

    But, Pittsburgh does have a proven track record of drafting and developing good WRs. I just prefer Jennings' knowledge of our system and staff over the upside of Wallace's age and health.

    although i'd rather have the younger wallace i just believe a santonio holmes situation will happen where the guys just a "me" player and only cares about himself. i think holmes is good but i just think were better off signing Jennings, hartline and use that 1st rd pick on a pass rusher, or CB. use a early 2nd for a wr. we could fill one or 2 more holes if we sign jennings compared to holmes

    If Wallace and Jennings were going to get the same amount of money I would rather have Wallace. However I think we will have to over pay Wallace a lot more than Jennings.......so I think Jennings would be the Smarter move....Sign Jennings, keep Hartline, draft a speedster high.

    No. Let's draft our guys like the Broncos, Colts, Steelers, Giants.

    Time for Jeff to earn his money.

    Mike Wallace is a proven, NFL-caliber, play-making, speedster WR. I would rather have Wallace than the unproven potential "play-maker" WR pick Ireland makes in the draft. I mean, look at his (Ireland's) track record.

    There are various reasons (many of which are unbeknowst to us here on the fan forums) why a particular team decides not to resign a particular player.

    Besides, do you really think "building through the draft" and "Jeff Ireland" really add up? More than signing established playmaking WRs?

However, it has to be for a mutually beneficial deal.
    Wallace is a 'fit any scheme' kind of player.

    His home run threat ability every play opens up the offense for all others on the offense.

    We just finished paying Jake Long almost $60M on his contract but we're balking at giving a proven playmaker, in his prime no less, a similar amount? Part of the reason this team is mired in mediocrity is that we have a handful of good but few great players, especially on offense where our best players are on the line.
