Default Hines plan to be in Black & Gold next season

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) The Steelers have a lot of decisions to make over the next month and one of them is whether or not to pay Hines Ward a roster bonus due in early March.

Ward is not against taking a pay cut, but, with the departure of Bruce Arians and a possible re-emphasis on the run game, Ward becomes more important in the blocking game.

Ward told reporters today at the Super Bowl, I plan on playing with the Pittsburgh Steelers and going from there.

Talks will begin between the Steelers and Ward in the next two weeks.

Wonder if Hines will be included in more plays now that Arians is gone?

It isn't about including him, it's about whether or not he's talented enough to even participate. I think he's still got talent left in him, but he's obviously lost a step. I'm sure he'll be the #5 guy, and he'll see time off the bench.

He may have lost a bit, but i still think he has it!....Theres defensive guys older than him still playing. I dont see many saying their to old.. Ok maybe Ray Lewis but, not many...lol

He will take any role they give him. He will definitely be used in run blocking schemes. These young guys wanted him back and they got their wish. He is a team first guy and just wants to play for the best damn football team ever! But seriously he would do anything to be part of the team and they would do anything to keep him

thats all fine and dandy, but what matters is if the black and gold plans to have him next season.

with how his production dropped, im not sure he should play for us anymore. and if he does, it should be the league minimum since he's probably behind cotchery in the depth chart

hines has been my favorite steeler over the years but it's time to hang em up, he has no role in our offense anymore outside of a backup

Problem is league minimum and vet minimum are two different scales.

I hope he's planning on taking a vet minimum.

There's no way in hell they'd bring him back on his current contract...He'll be substantially reduced in his contract if he's coming back.
