NFL Free Agents 2012: Mike Wallace Could See Himself A San Francisco 49er

Free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace had an interview on Sirius XM NFL Radio with Adam Schein and Rich Gannon on Wednesday, and talked about some of the possible destinations he might land in if he indeed leaves the Pittsburgh Steelers for greener pasturers. One of those landing spots he spoke of just so happened to be the San Francisco 49ers, a place where he can see himself playing in the future.

Wallace was asked about joining a contender from either division in the 49ers or New England Patriots, and said he would be happy to play for either one:

"Most definitely. Those are two playoff caliber, Super Bowl caliber teams. All those teams need are that one more piece of the puzzle to put them over the top...I wouldn't want to go anywhere and leave the situation I'm at, with a great quarterback and a great organization, and go someplace where I don't feel I can compete (for a championship)"

Wallace also noted that the desire 'to get my money' is a large deciding factor on where he'll end up, as well as the team's quarterback. And, of course, winning championships:

"You don't want to leave a team like the Steelers and not win. I don't want to go to a team and just win two games. A quarterback...I don't care how good you are, you aren't going to be good if you don't have a good quarterback."

It will be tough for the Steelers to put up around the $8 million a year that Wallace will likely be after, meaning it looks like whoever has the most money and a decent organization will win the services of one of the top receivers in the game today.
