    Post Aaron Smith takes out full pge AD, thanking the fans

    Dear Steelers Fans,

    As of today, I am no longer a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. I leave the field and Steelers with no regrets, and am grateful to have played for such a tremendous organization. I feel truly blessed to have spent my entire professional career in the best town, playing for the most loyal fans who have loved and supported myself and my family.


    The last 13 years of our lives have been special because of the people who cheered me on, and I am truly fortunate to have been a part of the Steelers, the City of Pittsburgh and the Steelers Nation. You have opened your arms and your hearts to us as a family and we will never forget that. Your support, enthusiasm, love and dedication are gifts I will carry with me my entire life.

    I may no longer be on the Steelers active roster, but I will always be a Steeler and will never forget the people who made it all worthwhile -- the fans, the Rooneys, the front office, the equipment guys and trainers, my teammates and family. Thank you for supporting me over the last 13 years, and I hope you will support me in whatever future path life will take me on.


    We plan on making Pittsburgh our home and I will endeavor for the rest of my days to find a way to thank each and every one of you personally for all that you have done and meant for me and my family. You cheered for me for 13 years and now I cheer for you for the rest of my life. You will always be in my heart, thoughts and prayers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to have the job of a lifetime. You will always be in my heart.

    Your friend always,
    Aaron Smith and Family, No. 91

    One of the greatest 3-4 defensive lineman in NFL history, he was the benchmark on how to play the position both with skill and humility. Smith leaves the game with his legacy secured! Thank you man, one of the classiest and humble players ever!

    This is very cool, I'm glad he took the time to thank everyone. Going out with a press conference just wasn't his style but this more than suffices for a farewell to the fans.

    Great career 91, one of the best ever!

    I'd like to wish Aaron health and happiness in his next phase of life after football.
    He is everything a Steeler should represent and strive to be not only on the field
    but in the way he carries himself off the field as well.

    "Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward
