I'm actually going to change my opinion and start hoping that someone makes Wallace an offer, so that we can a round one and start moving on.  It seems pretty clear that he's headed in the diva direction.

I still give it a 61-39 percent chance that he'll be back this year.

Man, I suspected he wanted big bucks, but I had no idea his perceived self worth was that overinflated.  

I'm sure his agent whispering in his ear isn't helping matters much.

True dat.

I agree with everyone here, that if it's true, he has lost his damn mind. However, I did read somewhere that it could be a ploy to make sure he stays in Pittsburgh...It might have been ESPN's AFC North guy who said it, but the gist was that if he put it out there that he wanted Megatron money, nobody is going to put an offer on him, and thus, he would stay put. I dunno...

It sounds like Hines Ward has been in his ear trying to get him to stay, too. 

The optimist in me wants to believe that he asked for that kind of money from SF because he knew they wouldn't offer it so he could stay in Pittsburgh, but that seems a little naive.

Actually, all of this is great (short term) news...

If he has to play at the tendered amount, the Steelers get him at a solid number for one season. And obviously he will be ultra-motivated to put up numbers, if he really thinks he deserves Megatron money.

He's not going to go after big money. It's just not his style.
The money is going to have to hit him in stride.

Wouldn't it just be simpler to put it out there that he's just not interested in moving right now?  Can't see the purpose of the double talk.

I agree. But, I'm also a sucker for the Super Secret Squirrel angle...
