With Mike Wallace likely out in Pittsburgh, could he sign with the divison rival Cleveland Browns?
The signing would make sense if you think about it. Wallace is a speedster and that’s what the Browns like. With sub-par receiver Josh Cribbs saying that he didn’t like that the team rebuilt every season through the draft, the Brown might look to add some talent via free agency.
With new head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner, Wallace would fit in well within the offense. Over his four year career with Pittsburgh, Wallace caught 235 balls for 4,042 yards and 32 touchdowns. Everyone knows that Wallace is a deep threat, and that’s what the Browns will likely love about him in the new offensive scheme.
With Wallace in Cleveland, would the Browns be a threat to the Steelers? It’s hard to tell. It depends on how well Brandon Weeden can get the ball to him and if the defense could step up. Last season the Steelers only gave up 362 passing yards and 2 touchdowns against the Browns. During the two games, no Browns receiver went over 100 yards.
Steelers fans everywhere will probably not lament the loss of Wallace too much but if he goes to the Browns, it might just give them another reason to hate him.
