Default Teammates: Hartings will retire

Teammates: Hartings will retire
Mike Bires, Times Sports Staff

At least two Steelers told The Times that veteran center Jeff Hartings, 34, plans on retiring.

Hartings was not one of the handful of players who were made available to the media Monday after the Steelers met one-on-one with Bill Cowher for the last time this season, and perhaps for the last time ever.

Guard Alan Faneca, who believes Cowher will resign based on his one-on-one with the coach, also thinks Hartings has played his last game.

"I think Jeff handled the game (Sunday in Cincinnati) like it might have been his last game, and that's what you do if you're in that situation,'' Faneca said.

"You savor the moment and enjoy it. You take a picture with the guys that you're in the trenches with, just in case it is. You don't want to step away and all of a sudden you've missed those moments."

I know his knees have been bothering him the past few years. It might be the smarter thing to do now.

Oh my. I'm starting to get nervous reading the Steeler headlines. Everything lately has been about someone leaving the team. Who's next? Hines?

I think the Harting's departure was expected.

Take care Jeff and thanks for the memories. You filled the role nicely of a typical Steeler center.

Hartings outplayed himself, he supposedly has NO cartlidge in either knee, bone on bone. I remember 5 years ago he was hoping to get a couple more years in, and he has played flawlessly.

Great Job JEFF, Thank you, Enjoy

This is the guy I modeled how I played center while at Geneva College. He is so technically sound it is ridiculous. I am going to miss him, but I think Chukki will fill in just fine.

Jeff was a solid FA and played on bad knees far longer than many expected. Good luck to Jeff in life after football.

A loss but when it is time to go so be it. Hope Okobi steps up - only Faneca and Smith are definite to return to the starting OL next fall - times they are a changing.
