Yes, really, Wallace has reported to Steelers
By Jamison Hensley
Disgruntled wide receiver Mike Wallace has ended his 1,000-day holdout (OK, maybe it's been a little over 100 days) and has reported to the Steelers.
Yes, it's finally happened. I swear. You don't believe me? ESPN's Josina Anderson has a picture of Wallace entering the Steelers' facility. Sure, it looks like one of those Facebook pictures of your friend's kid going to his first day of school. Nevertheless, this means WallaceWatch 2012 is officially over.
Wallace is expected to speak to reporters after practice, even though he technically can't practice. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, he can't take part in full-team drills for a few days, which means he can't suit up for the preseason finale. Funny how that worked out. He will be available to play when the regular season begins and his weekly $158,000 checks start coming in.
