Mike Wallace, Steelers reportedly in contract standstill

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace's decision to stay away from practice during the OTA/minicamp season has yet to get him any closer to a long-term deal.

Why the drastic change in philosophy that has given the NFL record passing stats? Steve Wyche finds the answers. More...

Len Pasquarelli of The Sports Xchange reports there's "no progress" and "very little negotiating" between the Steelers and the Pro Bowl wideout on a deal. Wallace remains unsigned after the Steelers offered the restricted free agent a one-year deal worth $2.7 million.

It's no surprise that the two sides haven't made much headway. All reports indicate Wallace and Steelers are far apart on how much he is worth. More importantly, it's the dead time of the NFL offseason.

Deadlines spur action, and the next deadline for the Steelers and Wallace is the start of training camp. We wouldn't expect there to be much negotiating until the days leading up to camp. That's just how negotiations like these usually go.
