Former Pittsburgh Steelers center Cody Wallace is reportedly garnering interest from the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints as he continues to rehab from a left knee injury, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
Wallace missed the entire 2016 season after suffering the injury during the team’s second preseason game last August. Examinations revealed no structural damage, but Wallace continued to deal with significant pain and was placed on injured reserve in November.
Wallace started 16 games for the Steelers in 2016 after serving as a reserve through his first four professional seasons. The 2008 fourth-round pick didn’t play during his rookie season and also missed the 2010-11 seasons. He also played for the San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers before winding up with the Steelers in 2013.
The Packers and Saints could use help on their offensive lines. However, Wallace’s injury history might not be worth the risk.
