I'd maybe trade him for Wallace AND the Steelers 2nd round pick this year and another sliding pick next year. He's too good and does way too much to just give him away! Think about how opposite they are!! Wallace is a one trick pony, albeit, the one trick we're missing most, a deep ball reciever. Harvin does it all and does it well...pretty sure he was leading the league in catches, YAC, and return yards before the injury. You just can't afford to let an Offensive Rookie of the Year type of a guy get away for nothing...You have to capitalize on the picks you hit, cuz there's always going to be ones you miss on too.

My gut feeling is that the Steelers have lost their leverage with him due to his poor showing this season and his high asking price.
Picture instead, Wallace starting outside in a burner role with Harvin working underneath him out of the slot and backfield...and, perhaps, another early draft pick fighting for reps on the other flank, with Jenkins (our blocking, possession guy) and Wright backing those three up.
Add in AP, and we might be looking at one of the best, most dangerous groups of weapons in the league, and a team than any QB would like to lead. As in, in case Ponder goes more backwards than forwards next year, we can entice somebody else to do the job...
