Putting a damper on Mike Wallace talk

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert says the team will not trade receiver Mike Wallace, Ed Werder reports.

That would obviously affect our plans for Wallace here in the NFC West.

The direct quote from Colbert: "Mike Wallace is not available for trade."

Colbert did not say the Steelers would never consider trading Wallace. He said Wallace is not available for trade. There could be a difference. Circumstances change. For now, though, Colbert's comments tell us to sit back and let the situation play out. Wallace isn't on the trading block at this time.
