Re: Bires: Business is business, so Ward has to go
I've been saying for years that Hines Ward is the best all around WR in the league. I know that might have been an overstatement, but I just love the way he was a guy you could always count on. Be it catch a ball over the middle, fight for that extra yard, or make the crucial monster block down field that receivers just aren't good at. I am going to miss him in a Steeler's uniform, but its the right call.
The Steelers are getting old at quite a few positions and if they don't fill there needs in the next few years, we could see the 80's type seasons come back. I'm sure the Steelers organization realize this and they have done a great job at developing talent in the past decade or so.
I'm sad to see Hines and Aaron Smith go, but excited about what the future holds.
I'm pretty sure they will get a deal done with Wallace.
