08:08 AM ET 03.29 | Mike Tomlin, of course, would prefer not to think about the departure of Mike Wallace. At this stage, there is no indication that any team will sign Wallace to an offer sheet. Here are the best reasons we can come up with: It's too early. Teams have until April 20 to sign restricted free agents to an offer sheet. Unrestricted free agents get the most attention early in the process, and teams then start looking closer at restricted players. Perhaps a team is out there biding its time. ... He's too expensive. ... He's not versatile. ... The logical teams don't need him. The San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots were rumored to be two possible fits for Wallace, but both teams signed multiple free-agent wide receivers.

Still can't get over Randy Moss going to the '9ers...but I digress...

No such thing as too many weapons at WR.

As a 9ers fan, I'm actually not excited about this. Look at who we have throwing him the ball.

Did Smith resign yet?

It won't take Moss long to get frustrated running up and down the field with nothing to show for his efforts.

Unless you've got a bunch of divas fighting over the ball and driving the QB insane.

He has agreed to, but not sure if he actually has.

Hopefully he can make it through training camp.

Yeah... isn't he looking for "Larry Fitzgerald Money" in his next deal?

Team that takes him gives up a first round pick...

He did. Three years, $24M... not sure how much of that is guaranteed, though.

And then there's that...

Maybe if he changed his name to "Wallace and Gromit," there'd be more interest. Heck, even Hollywood might call.

No one is chasing Wallace, because no one can catch him.

No one has the money to acquire him and the Steelers kind of know that.
