Wallace held out of training camp this past year in protest of his first-round restricted free agency tag. He had declined a contract offer from the Steelers, and elected to sit out instead of risk injury.
So, in other words, the Steelers never had a chance last year anyway. That was fun, thanks for coming, be sure to tip your waitresses.
We'll send some love to our friends at The Phinsider, they do seem genuinely excited about the impending arrival of Wallace. And maybe it'll be a good thing for them there.
