PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace says he's focusing on the final three weeks of the season, not his uncertain future with the team or the booing he received during last week's loss to San Diego.
Wallace said he understands why some people are "out to get" him following his lengthy holdout during training camp. He returned to the Steelers without the extension he wanted and will become a free agent at the end of the year.
The 26-year-old is on pace to match numbers he posted in 2011, when he made his first Pro Bowl but has made a handful of critical mistakes. He dropped a pass in the first half against the Chargers that would have given the Steelers (7-6) a needed boost.
