The Pittsburgh Steelers have finally received some good news on the Mike Wallace front.
The Steelers disgruntled wide receiver has been a no-show at Steelers camp all offseason as he was hoping for a new long-term deal. While Wallace has been absent, Pittsburgh has seen development from receivers Emmanuel Sanders and recently extended Antonio Brown but that is all expected to change.
ESPN insider Adam Schefter is reporting that Mike Wallace will report to the Pittsburgh Steelers prior to week one of the regular season.
He always could change his mind, but Pittsburgh WR Mike Wallace is expected to report back to Steelers before the regular season begins.

It will be a big addition for the Steelers. Wallace is one of the league’s top deep threats and he brings a new dynamic to the offense that it currently lacks. When you bring Wallace, Brown and Sanders together, the Steelers have an incredible arsenal of weapons for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
If Wallace does change his mind, he will be even more in the dog house with the Steelers fans than ever before. If he reports, they will welcome him with open arms and understand that he will be key to their success.
The person who may be most happy to hear about Wallace’s expected return is Antonio Brown who will benefit from the double-teams Wallace will be receiving.
