Rice could become a cap casualty eventually, but not this year. We have plenty of cap space right now.
$18m, Wallace will likely command $9m or $10m of that. I don't think the FO wants to spend $20m or so on two WRs, have only $8m or so leftover to look at extending some of our guys, fill other holes, sign our rookies, or push back as cap space for next year.
If we sign Wallace, I think Rice is gone, or Miller, but it seems like Miller does a lot for them.
It's not a matter of running out of cap space, it's a matter of it being unlikely they think that it's the best way to use it.
