There have been reports, suggestions and speculation that the Pittsburgh Steelers would be willing to trade holdout receiver Mike Wallace, who still has yet to report to training camp.

That won't happen. At least that's what Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert tells ESPN's Ed Werder.

"Mike Wallace is not available for trade," Colbert said.

If that is indeed the case, then the Steelers' options are fairly limited. They can reopen talks with Wallace about a long-term deal, something that many believe is less likely now that Antonio Brown has agreed to a five-year extension.

Or they can ride things out with Wallace and expect to see him in Pittsburgh sometime before the first game of the regular season.
