Despite an offseason of frustration over not getting a long-term deal done, it now appears the Steelers and WR Mike Wallace are making progress in contract talks, and there’s growing belief that the two sides will reach a deal before the start of next week’s training camp. The Pro Bowl restricted free agent receiver was unable to get another to team to sign him to an offer sheet, and was forced to come back to Pittsburgh unwillingly, but it appears there will be no controversy between Wallace and the Steelers going into what should be a promising season for the 4th-year receiver.
The Baltimore Sun believes it’s “fair to say” Anthony Allen will open Ravens camp as the team’s No. 2 tailback. Allen was a 7th-round draft choice of the Ravens in 2011, but managed to get only 8 rushing yards in all of last season. If Ray Rice were to ever go down to injury, the Ravens RB depth is very thin, and the team may look to sign a veteran before the season starts.
Robert Griffith III’s deal should pave the way for the Browns and RB Trent Richardson to finally strike a deal.
