Default 'Dancing With the Stars' bad idea for Ward?

'Dancing With the Stars' bad idea for Ward?

By James Walker

First it was Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco in the AFC North who took the plunge to be on "Dancing With The Stars." Now it's Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward.

The former Super Bowl MVP continued the trend of having current and former NFL players on the show. He adds to the list of DWTS alumnus such as Ochocinco, Jason Taylor, Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith.

Is this a good idea for Ward? I have some concerns.

Similar to Ochocinco, participating on the spring reality show will take time away from Ward's offseason schedule. Ochocinco had two reality television shows last year, missed all voluntary workouts and had a down year, catching just 67 passes for 831 yards and four touchdowns.

Ward will turn 35 on March 8 and his numbers were also down last season. He caught 59 passes for 755 yards and five touchdowns for the reigning AFC champions.

With a pending lockout, maybe none of this will matter. If a new collective bargaining agreement isn't reached any time soon, which is very possible, there will be no offseason workout program for teams anyway. Maybe that factored into Ward's thinking, and he decided to take advantage of the spotlight and the opportunity.

But the idea of Ward dancing in Hollywood this spring seems like an un-Steeler-like move, especially with Pittsburgh coming off a tough loss in Super Bowl XLV and trying to stay focused next season in order to get back to the big game.

Unlike Chad, Hines can still play.

No complaints here. If he wants to have fun then that's fine as long as he keeps his work ethic up.

So when he pulls out some salsa moves and shakes 7 defenders on one play, will that make it a GREAT move? or 7?

Let athletes do as they want in their free time. Shaq vs. was a very comical show and I believe he got some serious physical benefit from him. I'm sure things like this break up the monotony that can occur from being a professional athelete.

There are some people who I don't question anything they do. Hines Ward is one of them.
