Pittsburgh Steelers Christmas Carol Is Needed for Mike Wallace

Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is one of the best novels in American history. It has been made into movies numerous times, and the story holds true to this very day.

Thinking about the current situation with Pittsburgh Steelers Mike Wallace, I believe a history lesson in this case may be necessary.

For those of you living under a rock, Mike Wallace is the restricted free agent of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He currently has an offer on the table of $2.7 million dollars, which is the tender amount that the Steelers used to restrict his free agent movement.

No team was willing to pay Wallace what he believed he was worth, in addition to giving up the first-round compensation which would have been required had the Steelers not matched the offer.

Some say that Wallace was looking for Larry Fitzgerald money, while others believe that the Steelers have already offered Wallace a contract that they gave to receiver Antonio Brown when Wallace would not sign it.

Either way, as we currently sit, the Steelers are without their field-stretching receiver, and the receiver is staying away from Steelers camp until he gets what he believes he is owed.

To the tune of A Christmas Carol, here is A Steelers Carol. Imagine it narrated by Hines Ward.
