If he were to sign somewhere else and not perform well, he would seriously give his legacy a black eye. Anyone remember a guy named Franco ???
Thanks for the memories ,you epitomized what it meant to be a STEELER WR. Wish you the best in the future !!
Go out like a true professional and announce your retirement,please don't embarrass yourself and go be a 3rd or 4th WR on another team..

Happy Happy Joy Joy....Happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love you Hines but your old slow ass had to go......Thanks for all you done for the Steelers but all good things must come to an end at sometime.....
According to Ed Bouchette, they never offered him a paycut either...
Ward, who had two years left on his contract at a $4 million annual salary, was never offered a chance to take a pay cut, a source close to Ward told the Post-Gazette. That would indicate the Steelers' decision was based purely on their assessment of him as a player.
Damn. Sad day. Time to see Young Money or the Bugatti boys make history for the Burgh!

We will never truely know whats going on. I am still holding out hope that they offer Hines a deal in next couple days at league min. So he can retire a steeler. Then turn around and offer him a job with the team.

I still have nightmares (seriously) about seeing Franco in that shitty seahawks uniform when i was just a pup. Hines, I hope you retire dude.....and maybe in a year or two you could come back as an assistant or something. F*ck!!!........yeah, this had to happen sooner or later but it still sucks.
ps: If I live to be 120 years old I'll never forget Hines laying out Ed Reed with a nasty ass decleat block. That one play made me proud to be a Steeler fan for the rest of my life.
