We all know that it is about the almighty dollar and what the younger players can do, HOWEVER, Hines Ward is a fan favorite and one of the Steelers that people like and WATCH even if they don't like the Steelers. Rooney family PLLLEEASSEE reconsider and KEEP Hines Ward, let him retire as he wished a forever black and gold bleeding Pittsburgh Steeler.
Hines never said he'd take a pay-cut, he said he'd be willing to restructure his current contract. There's a huge difference in the two, but I think he would have either way if it was brought up to him.
