Don't hold your breath on those Mike Wallace to Miami rumors
There were a lot of rumors yesterday that Mike Wallace the outstanding Pittsburgh Steelers WR might be on the trade market and that the Miami Dolphins were in the mix for his services. Well, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert has told Ed Werder of ESPN that Mike Wallace is not available for trade. As I speculated yesterday I thought this would be the case. Pittsburgh is trying to win a Super Bowl and can afford to force Wallace to play this year for the restricted tender and let him walk at seasons end. Now, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert could be saying this as a negotiating stance to raise the price tag of Wallace in any potential deal. But I don't buy that either, I take Colbert at his word on this one. Although if Wallace holds out for most if not all of training camp he might force Pittsburgh to do something eventually in 3-4 weeks. But for now, I wouldn't hold your breath on any Mike Wallace trade to Miami or anywhere for that matter.
