PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Jason La Canfora has joined CBS Sports and CBSSports.com as their new NFL Insider. He was a guest Friday on The Fan Morning Show.
La Canfora says the Steelers love wide receiver Mike Wallace; and he wants to be here and he expects a deal to be done.
He said he thinks Wallace might be able to get a $10 million a year deal, and he should take that and run with it because he is not going to get the $15 million per year he wants.
“There comes a point where you have taken it as far as you can before it hurts you. He is at that point,” La Canfora said when discussing Wallace’s decision to continue to hold out.
So what about that new Steelers offense?
He expects some growing pains with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Todd Haley in this first year of the new Steelers offense, but in year or two, “there is an ample possibility that this could be an even more explosive offense,” La Canfora said.
He expects that Roethlisberger and Haley need to meet each other halfway to make this happen.
