Report: Mike Wallace to sign contract this weekend, return to team
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace will end his holdout and report to the team this weekend, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
The Steelers play Saturday night in Buffalo against the Bills and play in their final preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Aug. 30 in Pittsburgh.
Wallace had a one-year tender of $2.742 million that the Steelers offered him but Wallace has said he is looking for a long-term deal. While Wallace held out, the Steelers signed wideout Antonio Brown to a six-year, $42.5 million contract. Wallace made his first Pro Bowl last season after catching 72 passes for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns.
