If Mike Brown wants to see his club contending for a Super Bowl in the same AFC North division that has seen four champions in a seven-year span, then he is inclined to at least give Wallace’s agent a call to gauge his interest, as well as his asking price.
Don’t expect it to get any further than though, as Jason La Canfora reports Wallace will seek $10-11 million annually. That kind of contract is currently reserved for A.J. Green, who will likely command beyond that price tag, and it’s extremely rare to see an NFL team spending $25 million+ on two receivers.
So while the idea of Wallace lining up alongside A.J. Green makes Bengals fans gush with excitement, unless Wallace is willing to lower his asking-price, it will never be anything more than a pipe-dream.
