Mike Wallace doesn't plan on attending the Pittsburgh Steelers' offseason training activities in protest of his first-round tender, but the wide receiver reportedly has generated a wealth of trade interest.

Several teams would like to acquire the three-year veteran, a league source told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

A league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora that Wallace isn't satisfied with the tender and he cannot report without a signed deal.

In March, La Canfora reported that Pittsburgh had tendered an offer to Wallace, who's a restricted free agent. General manager Kevin Colbert said the team would do its best to retain Wallace, but it could find itself in a difficult spot if another team swoops in and offers the receiver a big deal.

Wallace caught 72 passes for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns last season. In his three years with the Steelers, Wallace has caught 171 passes for 3,206 yards and 24 touchdowns.

The Steelers selected Wallace in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
