INDIANAPOLIS - NFL teams could begin assigning their respective franchise tags to players starting this past Monday. As of today, however, no teams had done so. One player who could get so designated is Steelers restricted free agent (RFA) Mike Wallace.

Pittsburgh's prolific wide receiver is another player who has been discussed lately as a possible target for acquisition by the Patriots. However, GM Kevin Colbert told reporters covering the Combine that he intends to retain Wallace's services.

"We're going to do everything we can to make sure Mike Wallace remains a Pittsburgh Steeler," asserted Colbert, who added that he believed that was the player's hope as well.

Colbert disclosed that Wallace will likely be offered the highest tender offer, with the franchise tag also a possibility.
