Steelers Mike Wallace not expected at training camp

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace is required to show up to training camp by 4 pm Eastern on Wednesday. But signs are pointing to that he will not be making an appearance anytime soon reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Wallace has yet to sign his one-year tender worth $2.74 million that was offered in free agency. Signing the tender would allow Wallace to practice while he tries to work on a long-term deal with the team.

Wallace did not show up at any of the team's offseason activities. The Steelers have a new offensive coordinator in Todd Haley and it is reported that Wallace did pick up his playbook.

"He's a sharp guy," Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said last month. "I'm sure he's working at the learning element of it. But there's no substitute for being here and being around your teammates and learning the nuances and learning from other people's mistakes."
Wallace caught 72 passes for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns last season and made his first Pro Bowl.
