    Tomlin says Wallace holdout will be over soon

    Mike Tomlin didn't sound worried about WR Mike Wallace unsigned $2.7 million tender and absence from OTAs that started Tuesday. "This is a business," Tomlin said. "Mike came in last week and we visited. It'll be over. it'll be a short-term (absence). But it won't be significant."

    From our friend Chuck Finder at CBS Sports

    What "short term" means exactly is anybody's guess but I'm assuming Wallace plans on attending the mandatory sessions coming up on June 1.

    I expect the guys to learn the offense and learn it quickly. We need that type of attention and work that we are getting right now.


    On the topic of Wallace not being at OTA's and is he disappointed in that situation: "Not at all, this is a business, it's an element of the business. Mike came in, we visited last week, we had good communication. This process is going to run it's course. We know what type of young man he is, he's a hard worker, a diligent young man. It will be over soon, there will be some short term misery but it won't be significant in the big scheme of things hopefully."

    Best news yet. Sign the tender, play your *** off and good luck to you next year. Better yet, sign the tender and we can you to the Hags for their #1 or #2 pick next year.

    I can hear Tomlin now _ Son, what are you thinking, you still owe us a year no matter what. Sign the damn tender and catch the rock.

    I'm not going to listen to anyone even Tomlin on this. When Wallace grows up and realizes what the situation is then I'll listen.

    Exactly!! What was Tomlin suppose to say??? That Wallace is a malcontent? Tomlin is taking the politically correct position right now. As he should. He's here to coach and not negotiate contracts.

    I want Wallace to stay out as long as he feels the need to stay away. That's more reps for guys who are already here. Take your time Mr. Wallace. Take your time and I'm sure you'll get everything you deserve.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.
