Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace wants to be paid like a big-time receiver.
Just how much is Wallace seeking? Well, according to the Sacramento Bee, the speedster wants a deal that will eclipse the eight-year, $120 million pact of Arizona Cardinals stud Larry Fitzgerald.
The Steelers have tendered a contract to Wallace. The team has the right to match any offer Wallace receives or would get a first-round pick in return.
The Pro Bowler has established himself as one of the NFL's premier deep threats, averaging 18.7 yards per reception in his first three seasons.
Wallace, 25, had 72 catches for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns last season.
