Report: Steelers Won't Bring Back Wide Receiver Hines Ward

Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- It looks like one of the greatest players to ever put on a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform has played his final down with the team. According to a report from the NFL Network, the Steelers are being forced to make roster cuts for salary cap reasons, and Ward is the latest casualty.

The 35-year old Ward has spent his entire 14-year career with the Steelers, winning two Super Bowls with the team during that time. He is the Steelers all-time leading receiver. He has caught 1,000 passes for 12,083 yards and 85 touchdowns for his career.

Ward though, has posted on his Facebook that he would be willing to take a pay cut or rework his contract in order to return to the team next season.
