As the deadline to sign restricted free agents has now passed, no teams made a run at Pittsburgh Steelers WR Mike Wallace, who had a first round tender. The restricted free agent market opened in March and some thought a team would consider offering Wallace a contract, even with the first round price tag involved.
As time went on it became clear that Wallace would be safe under the first round tender and remain a Steeler. The deadline to sign restricted free agents passed at 4 p.m. ET on Friday afternoon. Several teams were reportedly interesting but nothing got done.
Wallace is one of the rising stars in the game so I think several teams would've entertained signing him even if it cost a first round pick. The problem is that Wallace is reportedly looking for a huge contract, which would be difficult for teams to fit under the salary cap.
