Steelers sign Brown, Wallace running out of options

Brown’s deal could affect Wallace’s ability to cash in. The Steelers are up against the salary cap and — with the exception of Hines Ward — have been historically averse to giving big contracts to wide receivers. Two years ago, when Brown and Emmanuel Sanders were rookies, Wallace dubbed the threesome the “Young Money Crew.”

The Steelers are telling Wallace that his options are to sign his one-year tender and play this season for $2.7 million, or not to play at all.

In other words, there aren’t many options for Wallace right now. His best bet seems to be signing the tender, having another strong season, and hoping unrestricted free agency goes better for him next year than restricted free agency went for him this year.
