There as a flurry on wide receivers getting new contracts on Tuesday as the free agent period began in the NFL.
But none of the receivers signing deals was named Mike Wallace.
That doesn't mean, however, that it wasn't a big day for Wallace, as the market was set for a receiver of his skills.
Let's take a look at some of the deals that were completed.
Vincent Jackson, who is one strike short of getting a year's suspension, signed a five-year $55 million contract with Tampa Bay.
Washington went crazy - there's a shock - and gave Pierre Garçon $42.5 million for five years and Josh Morgan essentially $6 million per year.
Robert Meachem(!) got $25.9 million for four years from San Diego to replace Jackson.
And just before the free agency period began, New Orleans re-signed Marques Colston to a five-year, $40-million deal.
That's some crazy money being thrown around for a group of receivers, many of whom aren't in Wallace's class.
So what will this mean for the Steelers?
That $9.4 million figure it would have cost them to place the franchise tag on Wallace might have been a bargain.
Then again, with so many teams dipping their toes into the receiver waters, there aren't a lot of teams out there still looking for receivers.
And, as I've said all along, it's one thing to sign a receiver to a big deal. It's another to do so AND give up a first-round pick, which is what a team would have to do to pry Wallace away from the Steelers.
The question is, however, can the Steelers afford to sign Wallace to a long-term deal?
The answer, at least right now, is no. But the salary cap will be increasing in 2013, which is good news considering Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders are going to reach their restricted free agent year following the 2012 season.
