By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Hines Ward will not be the only receiver in danger of leaving the Steelers before the 2012 season begins.

One of the Young Money trio's contract expires, and, whether Mike Wallace returns, could depend on several factors inside and outside the organization.

Wallace becomes a restricted free agent in March, and, while the Steelers partially can protect their rights to him by offering him a one-year tender, there is no guarantee another team might see more value in him and try to sign him.

The Steelers likely will tender him a contract high enough -- those numbers have yet to be determined by the league -- to guarantee that, if someone else signs him, the Steelers would receive a first-round draft choice in return or be able to match the contract and keep him. They also could negotiate a long-term deal with Wallace before he becomes a restricted free agent.

Getting a first-round draft pick for Wallace is quite tempting.

If you're going to be a smart ass, you'd better be smart. Otherwise, you're just an ass.

I agree we should deal him if we get a #1. I think he lacks heart and toughness. Who cares if he can outrun coverage if he doesn't catch it when it's thrown to him.
