The Pittsburg Steelers released Hines Ward this week.  I’ve always liked him as a player and think he would be a nice addition to the Chargers.

Ward released a statement vowing to keep playing: “This isn’t how I wanted this chapter of my career to end. I did everything in my power to remain a Steeler and finish what I started here 14 years ago. I want to thank the organization, my teammates and coaches and everyone who made my run as a Steeler the best years of my life. To Mr. Rooney, thank you for allowing me to play for one of the greatest organizations in the world. To my fans and in particular, Steeler Nation, thank you for your support and all the great memories. I gave my heart and soul for you every down and I will always bleed black and gold. I do feel that I still have more football left in me and I am looking forward to playing in the NFL, again, this upcoming season.”

He is only six feet tall, so he is not the biggest receiver around, but he is one of the smartest.   I would love to see him in Charger blue, how about you?
