Steelers WR Mike Wallace Expecting Over $11 Million Per Season

Justin K. Aller

Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace, once argued to join the Bengals last year, is expecting a significant contract entering free agency.

This time last year there were arguments being made that the Cincinnati Bengals should trade one of their first-round selections from the 2012 NFL draft to acquire Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace, who was at that time tendered as a restricted free agent. Obviously it didn't happen and Wallace posted 64 receptions for 836 yards receiving and eight touchdowns.

Now Wallace is entering Tuesday as an unrestricted free agent, who could be the top wide receiver at his position. No. He's expecting to be.

According to Alex Marvez with FoxSports.com, Wallace is expecting to average between 11 million and $12 million per season and the early front-runners are reportedly the warm-weather Miami Dolphins.

Who can say what happens from now until late July, but the Bengals are expected to enter training camp with another position battle for the No. 2 wide receiver position with Mohamed Sanu having a slight edge over Marvin Jones.
