Another twist surfaced as Mike Wallace's holdout nears a third day: the Steelers wide receiver is reportedly the one calling the shots.
Sources told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that it was Wallace's idea to hold out of training camp and not his agent, Bus Cook. According to the paper, this has led the Steelers to take a different approach with their No. 1 wide receiver.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert confirmed that the team has stopped negotiations with Wallace on a long-term deal and its last offer is now off the table.
