Readers react: No to Mike Wallace with the Bills

By Jay Skurski

I asked Monday whether the Buffalo Bills should make a play for Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent receiver Mike Wallace, who's involved in a contract dispute with the team, and you answered.

More than 1,600 votes have been cast in our poll, with about 60 percent of you checking in with "no."

Here are a few reader comments:

SWEETROBBIEJ writes: "I made this suggestion before the draft that the Bills should do this. After being at their practice this past Saturday I am more convinced than ever that they should. You have to give yourself a chance to win at every position and not just settle on the best that you have when you can get as big an improvement as Wallace. He is head and shoulders a better receiver than any other receiver on the team except for Stevie who doesn't have his speed. With Wallace and Johnson this offense would be above average at every skill position except for TE and QB. His addition would make Fitzpatrick better in knowing he could go to any receiver on the field as well as running back."

KRAYZYMAN took a different stance: "hell no, it took three years to get rid of selfish players off the roster, some of the best player come with too much baggage-no thanks!!!"

The poll remains open, so vote and share your comments, as well.
