“We had a conversation today with Hines Ward and informed him that we plan to release him of his contract prior to the start of the 2012 NFL calendar year,” Steelers President Art Rooney II told the team’s website, Steelers.com. “Hines has been an integral part of our success since we drafted him in 1998 and we will forever be grateful for what he has helped us achieve. He has meant so much to this organization, both on and off the field, and we appreciate his efforts over the past 14 years. Hines’ accomplishments are numerous, and he will always be thought of as one of the all-time great Steelers. We wish him nothing but the best.”

sounds like they have no plans of bringing him back.

No your right it doesnt appear they are gonna bring him back.. but lets hope if he does play maybe they end up bringing him back for vet min.. I cant stand the thought of seeing him on another team.. I know weve seen it in the past.. webby.. franco etc.. but I would hate to see it with Ward... I just dont know why we cant vet Min him and ask him to play some specail teams... I bet he would do it... you know we gonna have at least one guy on the WR staff that is a Arnez Battle kind of guy... I would take ward all day over a guy like Battle

first post on here, i'm a steeler fan across the pond in scotland.

really sad to see hines go, he is one of the reasons i love american football, every play he always had a smile on his face, he bled blank and gold, its a sad day for steeler nation

however we have to look to the future and the up and coming wr's we have in pittsburgh and i believe they can bring home no.7!
