Default Steelers' Ward: One more ring, and I'd retire

Steelers' Ward: One more ring, and I'd retire


By John Grupp
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Friday, April 16, 2010

Wide receiver Hines Ward said Thursday he will retire after the season if the Steelers win the Super Bowl.

Ward, the Steelers' all-time leading receiver entering his 13th season, told a group of high school student/athletes that his career would be complete with one more ring.

"If I win three Super Bowls, I'm retiring," Ward said. "I'm telling you that right now."

Ward, owner of two Super Bowl rings, made the comment during a 40-minute question and answer session with about 40 student/athletes as part of a nationwide Gatorade promotion at North Hills High School.

Ward promised he will know when it's time to retire with or without a third Super Bowl.

"I don't want to be like Brett Favre," Ward said. "I don't want to be like Old Yeller, when they take you behind the barn and shoot you."

No way man. If the Steelers win a Super bowl next year, no way he retires. he has 3 years left in him. I think he wants to go out like Jerome. if that is the case, man oh man what a joy it was to watch for 13 years.

I don't blame him and I hope he gets it. He has been a great receiver for us over the years and there will never be another one like him.

I would want him to shoot for a fourth but him getting a third will be just fine with most of us!

I hate to even think about that; Hines is irreplaceable in every way. He's definitely got a few more years in him - but I hate to even hear it mentioned. That old yeller comment is just funny.
