An extremely sad day in Steeler Nation as a Black and Gold legend is released. Ward is probably my all-time favorite Steeler player and his on-field exuberance and tenacity will be greatly missed by this fan. I really had hoped they could find some way to find room for him for one more go around, but the cap situation has not afforded us the luxury of keeping him on the team considering his production and position on the depth chart last season.
Thank you, Hines, for all you have done for this football team. You will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.
