The Pittsburgh Steelers welcomed Mike Wallace back into the fold after he reported to the team's facility for the first time this offseason on Tuesday. Wallace has been holding out after he initially refused to sign his one-year restricted free agent tender.
The first question is how quickly he can get acclimated with the Steelers offense, which is being run by a new coordinator, Todd Haley. Wallace can't practice in pads for three days due to the rules of the new acclimation period and he'll also be learning Haley's new offense.
Free agent tight end Anthony Becht, who played under Haley in Kansas City last year, said it shouldn't take much time to learn Haley's offense.

@evansilva I learned Haleys offense last year in 7 days, just a matter of how smart the guy is. Plus I have to assume BigBen sent him things
The Steelers open the season on Sept. 9 which means Wallace has time if Becht's timeline is accurate.
