I agree. I know people will say if he is a team player why did he hold out. I believe him when he says it was a business decision. I do think he loyality is with the Steelers and that he will give 110% like he always has. You are right Blair. I met Hines his rookie season or maybe his second season. He was awesome. He was great with the fans and joked around with them.
