There’s been talk about the future of Hines Ward when it comes to being a member of the black and gold past next Sunday’s game vs the Packers.
It’s not like the Steelers would dump Ward or trade him, but Ward at one point stated that once he was the winner of three Super Bowls, he would retire. So would he?
“My mom asked me that the other day. I really haven’t thought about it, to be honest,” Ward said in the Tribune-Review. “I don’t want to make an emotional decision based off that.”
Ward is still a big part of the Steelers offense, but the team has started to admit that Mike Wallace is now the #1 wide out, and also don’t forget about rookies Antonio Brown and Emanuel Sanders, both of who will be looking for more playing time next year.
The 34-year-old Ward holds 14 team receiving records, including most yards (11,702), catches (954) and touchdowns (84). He also was the Super Bowl XL MVP.
“I know Jerome went out on top and stuff like that,” Ward said. “I really haven’t thought about it. I just want to be singly focused on winning this ballgame and figure out what is going to happen after that.”
If the Steelers win, it gives Ward a shot to end on top. Will he actually do it though with it seems a lot of gas left in the tank? I am betting not.
