Hey I'm a new fan so I don't know the rumor about the team but according to you, who will probably quit the team this mid season?

Football may quit the players if there is a lockout

Would not be surprised to see Ward retire if they win a third ring, although he needs around 50 catches to get to 1000, which would help his HOF chances

But it is huge $$$ - why walk away voluntarily until you know you are being shoved out the door?

I can't see Ward leaving without that 1000 catches. I know he talks a lot about only wanting the rings, but you know he'd like to retire with some nice looking milestones. I can't imagine he wants anybody to be able to question his abilities after he walks away

He's in. Holds many Steeler records, three rings (fingers crossed), and stats for the ages. I would be surprised if he did not.

I truly belive that Ward will announce his retirement before his last season. So us Steeler fans can give him the honor that he deserves. So I doubt he leaves after this season. The one person who does scare me a little is Troy. If you all have read anything about Troy it's that he is not the truely HUGE football fan. I mean when he is away from it, he doesn't follow it at all. Considering that, the fact that he loves his family, and would have 3 Rings, he may start to think about it. I mean he might play 2 more years to finish his contract. But I can't see him playing 15 + seasons like Lott did.

Troy wouldn't leave after this season, but you're right, he doesn't love football, but he's played football since he was a little kid and doesn't know anything else. He'll retire early, especially because he's injury prone. I'm afraid if there is a lockout, Troy retires in in 2012. A year away from the game would make him want to spend more time with his family and not the game.

Aaron Smith will probably retire. Ward said he will if the NFL goes to 18 games, if they don't there's a 50% possibility he comes back.
