    I just think he should show up as a good faith jester to show he does want to be here. He know’s he is going to get his contract why not sign the tender, and just keep negotiating. He is being selfish, and i know he fills he should be payed for his play, but come on what about the team who is waiting for you

  • Can you link to the pic of Keisel? Can’t connect to the images you mentioned…

    I thought it was Pittsburgh’s unwritten policy to no longer negotiate once a player starts missing days from training camp? Or, since Wallace isn’t officially under contract (he has been tendered an offer, but hasn’t signed it) does the team see this differently?

    Never mind, I thought so, new reports have written that the Steelers have suspended further contract talks with Wallace. Hope Wallace reports to camp soon, so that his contract negotiations with Pittsburgh will commence.
