Re: WR Ward turns down Steelers' offer
I was listening to ESPN radio today, and they had one of their NFL guys on there talking about hold-outs. After they went over T.O., Walker, and a few others....the host said "lets talk about two other, more serious hold-out situations".....it was Ward and Seymour. The expert said Ward is more likely to hold-out, it could get ugly, and it could ruin his career and legacy. He mentioned that the Steelers offered a nice contract and he didn't take it, and if he played for another team he would likely not be as successfull..... like many FA's that left Pittsburgh. He also mentioned he must stay in Pittsburgh because he is like an icon there and the fans love him. If he could play with Ben for some more years we may be talkling Hall of Fame.
