Pittsburgh Steelers Announce Press Conference with Hines Ward Today at Noon
It’s scheduled for today at 12 noon (est).
Although nothing is official, many sources are reporting that the press conference is to announce Ward’s retirement from the NFL.
The Steelers released Ward of his contract at the end of last month and he has since failed to round up any other suitors after testing free agency.
Ward has had a lustrous career after 14 years with the Steelers organization and it’s only fitting that he end it with them on a high note (from USA Today’s, The Huddle):
- 1,000 career catches (8th all time)
- 12,083 receiving yards (18th)
- 85 TD catches (13th)
- named to four Pro Bowl teams
- MVP of Super Bowl XL
