Pittsburgh: None

ESPN first reported that Pittsburgh will use a restricted free-agent tender on wide receiver Mike Wallace rather than the franchise tag. That means Wallace will count only $2.7 million against Pittsburgh’s tight salary cap. But the Steelers also run a far greater risk of losing one of the NFL’s top young deep threats. Under the new CBA rules, teams only must surrender a first-round draft pick if the offer sheet signed by an RFA isn’t matched — rather than first- and third-rounders as in the previous labor accord. Wallace could be attractive to a team with a wide receiver need picking late in the first round, like New England or San Francisco. —Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Chris Schneider)
