Former Steelers WR Mike Wallace scheduled to visit the Baltimore Ravens Monday

Another day of NFL Free Agency, and another player with Steelers ties linked to the Baltimore Ravens.

Shortly after the NFL Free Agency period started, it was rumored the Baltimore Ravens were interested in possibly signing Pittsburgh Steelers unsigned free agent tackle Kelvin Beachum. There hasn't been much news on that front in recent days, but another former Steelers player is visiting Baltimore on Monday. That player? Wide receiver Mike Wallace.

The former Steelers draftee is being viewed as a potential answer for the Ravens' woes at wide receiver. Wallace still has the speed which made him a lot of money when he left Pittsburgh for the Miami Dolphins, but his attitude off the field and lack of possession skills saw him leave Miami and go to the Minnesota Vikings.

His stint with the Vikings was also short lived, but Wallace certainly could thrive with a quarterback like Joe Flacco. When with Ben Roethlisberger, Wallace was his go-to deep threat, and they connected many times for big plays down field. Flacco is another quarterback who has the ability to throw the deep ball, and the Ravens have been missing such a player since Torrey Smith left for the San Francisco 49ers.

Could the Steelers be playing against their former teammate twice a year in 2016? The Ravens seem interested, for the right price.
