Mike Wallace to the Eagles? Forget About It.


You can put away your Mike Wallace pom-poms.

It’s not going to happen.

Yes, it’s been reported that the Steelers are nearly $10 million over the salary cap and the likelihood of Wallace departing this offseason is increasing by the day.

Just don’t expect Wallace, a restricted free agent, to make the trip across Pennsylvania to Philly.

As CSNPhilly.com’s Reuben Frank reported yesterday, the Eagles aren’t exactly in tremendous salary cap shape themselves, leading to the possibility that they will be forced to release CB Asante Samuel rather than seek compensation for the three-time All-Pro.

Now, the Eagles will have some spending flexibility this offseason, but would they do it to sign a receiver similar to DeSean Jackson at the additional price of a first round draft pick?

Come on now.

So while we can show two-year comparisons like the one Philly.com’s Sheil Kapadia drew up below to show Wallace is the more complete receiver, it’s a moot point in terms of the Eagles going after Wallace.
