    Wallace to the Browns???

    Mike Wallace could end up with Steelers' division rival

    By Chris Wesseling

    The Steelers have no plans to slap the franchise tag on wide receiver Mike Wallace , which means that the free agent's days in Pittsburgh are numbered .

    The news gets worse for Steelers fans. According to CBSSports.com's Jason LaCanfora, many in the organization believe the division-rival Cleveland Browns are Wallace's most likely landing spot next month.

    LaCanfora has broken several Wallace-related stories over the past year, which suggests a pipeline to agent Bus Cook or another member of the Wallace camp. New Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was a former minority owner of the Steelers , so he has first-hand knowledge of Wallace's talents.

    More important than those tangential ties, a Wallace signing makes sense for Cleveland on a football level. New head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner are installing a vertical offense that is ideally suited to Wallace's strengths as a speedster with the ability to take the top off of defenses.

    Second only to the Cincinnati Bengals in salary cap space, the Browns are expected to be big spenders under Haslam. They are one of the few teams with the deep pockets to handle Wallace's reported request of a contract in the neighborhood of Vincent Jackson 's five-year, $55 million pact.

    Should Wallace land in Cleveland, it's a good bet that he will not be catching passes from quarterback Brandon Weeden . Per LaCanfora, the new Browns regime "badly wants to upgrade " on the 2012 first-round pick. New VP of player personnel Michael Lombardi called the Weeden selection a "panicked disaster " last offseason.

    Honestly, I hope he goes there because Weeden Sucks. He will turn Wallace into Randle El on the Redskins.

    I dont see it. Cinci makes the most sense to me. Young QB, young no.1 WR and a butt load of money to throw at him. Plus he said he wanted to play on a contender with a good QB. Im not super high on Andy Dalton but he has made the playoffs in his first two seasons. And if you though Antonio Brown helped Wallace get open imagine what AJ Green will do for him?!

    brandon weeden, josh gordon/greg little, 50.1 million to spend

    andy dalton, AJ green, and 55 million to spend

    Scary thoughts, but time will tell. Snyder proved you can't buy a dynasty.
