Default The Steelers and Bengals Have Agreed to A Trade That Is Guaranteed to Turn Some Heads

The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off of their record-breaking 6th Super Bowl title, and as was the case after the last victory in 2005, the face of the Steelers is changing during the offseason. They've already lost Nate Washington, and now there has been an agreement reached with a division rival. This move may send Steeler Nation into an uproar, but it is a done deal nonetheless.

In a trade finalized a la the Colts' move from Baltimore to Indianapolis in the middle of the night back in 1984, the Steelers and Bengals made a deal that nobody ever saw coming. Cincinnati needed a new WR after losing TJ Houshmanzadeh to Seattle. They've landed the hard-hitting, always happy-go-lucky on the field, Hines Ward, Pittsburgh's all-time leader in every statistical category for wide receivers. In turn, the Steelers get, coincidentally, Cincy's 2008 first round draft pick, linebacker Keith Rivers, the man whose jaw Ward broke with a vicious hit in the first meeting between the Steelers and Bengals last season. This is also a good thing for the Steelers to land a young linebacker, as their linebacking core is aging fast. James Harrison is over 30 even though he just had the best year of his career, Casey Hampton is sometimes overweight and out of shape, and James Farrior is nearing his end, and signed a contract extension that will no doubt keep him in Pittsburgh until he retires, which could be in the next couple years for all we know.

The deal is a good move for both teams, but I must say that I will certainly miss Hines Ward. On the other hand, I look forward to seeing what Rivers can do. Until nex time, this is The Blitzburgh Pit Stop reminding you that nobody on your team is safe from the trade block, even your all-time greatest WR.

If this isn't April fools....someone is getting shot.

But Hines would retire before he played for the Bungles.

I wouldn't trade Ward for the entire Bengals team, their stadium, and their mascot.
